Praise for Speakers

  • About Cheryl Strayed

    What an absolute delight it was hosting Cheryl at our college. She couldn’t have been classier – she made the students feel completely at ease even though they were meeting their ‘idol.’ She was warm, compassionate, articulate and really listened to them. And of course the public interview and book signing was a huge success. Cheryl stayed until the very last person in the line got his book signed and even gave everyone a hug before she got back in her car.

  • About Charles Duhigg

    My team and I really enjoyed his presentation. He is a phenomenal speaker and was able to captivate the Bloomberg audience. His passion for the topic really translates into the audience and everyone picked up on his enthusiasm. I really like the way the prezi complemented his speaking style. I was a little worried that there might be too much prezi and not enough Charles but I was wrong—it was the perfect balance.
