Timber Products Management Resource Solutions

“I really appreciate the time you took getting to know our members and customizing your program for us – researching the forest products industry, spending time at our social functions, even getting to know people’s names and businesses. What a pleasure to work with someone so attentive to detail!”

American Bankers Association

“Thank you for being an important part of the American Bankers Association’s 2009 State Association Staff Workshop in Austin, TX. Your closing keynote address was one of the highlights of the conference. Several attendees came up to me afterwards and told me that I did a great job in selecting you as a speaker.”

Pioneer College Caterers

“WOW! You sure exceeded my expectations! I was convinced that your keynote was not only going to be appropriate, but that you were going to do a good job as well. What we experienced, though, was the most well-prepared, well-researched keynote ever. You were fun and inspiring; your grasp of our history was remarkable. I believe you reinforced for many that Pioneer truly is a unique company and a good place to work.

Halogen Software

“I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic job you did on your keynote at our user conference. I know I told you this already but our customers and staff (especially our executive team) raved about you. If you want any kind of quote or testimonial for your website, I’d be more than happy to provide one. I am just sorry that I didn’t get a chance to say a proper good-bye after Monday evening, but I trust your journey home was smooth.”
