European Forum on Health and Safety at Work, Vienna
You were GREAT!!!!!! Your impact on the participants...amazing! Thank you so much!
I think your presentation was the most talked about at the Forum, apart from being a real ice breaker.

Peter Stuyvesant Ball, New York
The Peter Stuyvesant Ball last friday night was an outstanding success in every respect: Comments from our attendees were uniformly positive [...] to the sociable and responsive ambiance in the room, the latter much do to you as the master of ceremonies and as the master of monologue.
