“I certainly thank my creator for blessing me with a passion to make a difference in people’s lives. My clients often praise the dynamic energy I bring to a room, or the combination of warmth, humor and focus that helps keep a group engaged and productive long into the afternoon. But they tell me they hire me back because they feel confident that, with my involvement, they will achieve definitive results.”
