Thank you so much Brenda!! You were FANTASTIC!! There was not one negative feedback comment, all would recommend you as a speaker again, 100%!! You were very engaging, and I was encouraged to see more people speak up in this session; I think this had a lot to do with the way you put everyone at ease. It exceeded my expectations across the board! Thank you again for all your efforts and hard work in bringing us your information, and for sharing it with such humility, humor, and passion. 5 stars!!
