You overcame some truly remarkable mental and environmental challenges. I know everyone at our annual marketing conference greatly appreciated your presentation and went away equally as inspired as I did. I was so moved it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We just finished collecting the feedback from our event survey and you received excellent reviews.
Your presentation and story was incredible and most certainly one of the highlights of the entire conference.
Colin and Julie were simply sensational. They were excellent to deal with prior to the conference, a real pleasure to meet and chat with, and of course they delivered a memorable presentation that our franchisees are still buzzing about. I would highly recommend them.
