"Thank you Bob, it is always a pleasure to see a true professional at work.

You have made the name "Speaker" stand out as a truism - someone who encourages people to examine their lives and make adjustments.

The personal stories you shared with your audience made such a great impression on everyone. The comments indicated you hit people right where it is important - in their hearts. Each of those in your audience took away a new feeling of personal success and encouragement."

Sherry Knight, Dimension Eleven Human Resources and Communications
