“You were able to create an emotional connection with our group. While many expected to hear another speaker talk about their personal accomplishments, you were able to weave your life story of service and success in business into specific info relevant to our company.  It really brought the message home for the audience.”

James Kaloyanides, Director, Sales & Customer Service, New England Coffee Company
