Praise for Speakers

  • About Charles Duhigg

    “Someone told me that in their 13 years at Amex, this was the best guest speaker they’d ever heard. We were so pleased with the event—from our planning and interactions with PRHSB, through Charles Duhigg’s speaking engagement here—and with the impact he will continue to have on the organization.”

  • About Karen Russell

    Karen Russell was adored by all. She is magnificent. She’s kind and funny and generous and unassuming and smart and game and willing to speak with students. All I have is praise.

    —Hofstra University

  • About Emily St. John Mandel

    Everything came together beautifully! The students greeted her as if she was a rock star, her talk was interesting and spell-binding, followed by a good half-hour of eager questioning, all by students. There is no doubt in my mind that Emily’s demeanor and presence made the night. It was wonderful. She is very kind, and showed a lot of stamina and patience.

    —St. Michael’s College
