“I want to personally thank you for delivering an outstanding presentation for NSA Wisconsin. Your topic: 'Beyond the Signature Story: Using Stories to Build Additional Revenue Streams' generated excellent attendance and brought out veteran chapter members to determine their desired outcomes laid the groundwork for one of the most content-rich sessions we have ever had. I really appreciate the fact your message aims high and targets the needs of advanced speakers. For those speakers who think they've "heard it all," I would strongly suggest they think again and apply your strategies and techniques to generate significantly more business from their current and former clients. Thanks again for everything. May our paths cross often.”
