Mark...what a great event you created for all at the ACG Company Retreat last week!
You blew the roof off the retreat with rock music/drumming and a message that not
only rocked but also tied into our retreat theme. The team here is still buzzing.
Hi Mark We really appreciate the effort and risk you took to come and speak to our
group. As I have mentioned before, you were probably the single best speaker we have
had for the retreat! I am still getting great feedback about your session. And remember
we have some tough critics. But more importantly you are a humble, caring and giving
person and it really comes through! Let's keep in touch.
