Clearly, the highlight of the day and the "difference maker" was the series you facilitated. Many participants were especially impressed by your ability to tie the qualities of successful leadership directly to our core values and philosophy.

David's presentation was extremely well received. On target, with great reminders and challenges. David and his keynote address was the star; with highest accolades and setting the tone and stage for everything that followed. Thanks to you and David for making this happen and allowing us to benefit of his vast knowledge, experience and talent.

David's southern charm, wit, and passion combined with his "reigniting success" message were perfect timing. "No Matter What", "From Now On", and "Consider It Done" are now embedded into our management team's vocabulary and actions.
