"I just had to tell you what an incredible job Jim did yesterday. He was amazing! People were so excited and inspired by him. Many people remarked that his message was so well delivered it didn't matter if you were a hockey fan or not his message resonated with everyone in the audience in different ways. I'm not in the office today, but I keep getting messages from people telling me how awesome it was to listen to him speak .... But I just couldn't let the weekend go by without telling you how fantastic he was, please pass this on to him."
