"On the plane last night, I was reflecting on what a wonderful feeling it was yesterday - exhilarated exhaustion - after our very successful conference. The excellent program you facilitated for our team will undoubtedly be a big part of the satisfaction ratings I am confident we will receive. I was especially impressed with the really effective - and relevant - combination of practical, pragmatic tips and powerful philosophy to guide how we build and sustain our organizational teams. As you so aptly inferred from observing us in action, we are an organization that deeply believes in the importance of achieving great results AND in achieving those results through means that reinforce and build our culture. We have so much capital in the minds and hearts of our dedicated colleagues, and your work yesterday is already helping us to better cultivate that valued resource in service to our customers. THANK YOU!!! On a more personal note, I have so enjoyed our collaboration and greatly look forward to future opportunities...Thanks again for the lovely experience of working with you. Somehow, it makes the word 'work' quite inappropriate, and that is about as good as it can get!"
