“The presentation took a unique path to the heart of creating performance. I even found a breakthrough in talking about introductions with clients.”

“I liked understanding that motivation is generally negative and unsustainable. Inspiration is what sets you up. I didn’t anticipate that I would change the way I think about myself. ”

“It was a reminder to focus on the little details – tracking. Who are the clients I intend to track? I found the presentation practical and useful.”
