You recently gave a presentation at my place of employment (Stout Risius Ross) and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the content of the presentation. Your "Power of 3" concept is helping me organize my time and focus on my goals.

Thank you so much for being a part of our new speaker series! I thought it went really well, and I also got a ton of emails saying how much people enjoyed it. I even bought a Franklin Covey planner to help me get started on the Power of Three!

I want to thank you for speaking at the Alliance Management Institute this week. I really enjoyed your presentation about how to stay happy and healthy and work in the nonprofit sector.

We all really enjoyed your presentation, and the board was extremely pleased with the information you provided. Thank you for your amazing energy and honesty, it was so refreshing. I think we are now all ready to launch our individual donor campaign! We will definitely let you know how things evolve.

Thank you so much for an amazing day! So much to talk about and to think about – you made an impact and caused change. That’s more than we could have hoped for in 1-day.

Thank you for speaking at the WVDO Conference and participating throughout the day! The panel with the entrepreneurs was absolutely delightful! Thank you for being such as wonderful speaker, fundraiser, leader and donor. You are a joy to be around.

My daily chauffeuring of children was completely elevated to imagining transformational opportunities - because of your radio interview discussing why people donate to charitable causes. I grabbed a receipt from my purse and had my daughter take notes as we were driving along, and I determined to contact you as soon as I could. Looking back, my notes are dated August 16, so I guess it’s true that time flies.


I want to thank you for speaking at the ADRP Conference and let you know that you provided a terrific keynote to kick off our programming. Our attendees were impressed and inspired by your experience and recommendations. I hope you will consider working with us on something in the future. Thanks again!

Gina Galluppi
2012 ADRP Conference Chair

I wanted to say thank you so very much for speaking at the ADRP conference. You were a huge hit! Great job tailoring your talk to this specific audience - it really resonated with the attendees. Many of the presenters at following sessions referenced something from your talk as well, which was great. I wouldn't be surprised if you hear from some institutions about speaking for their groups as well. It was a pleasure to connect with you again.
