“Chris, I just want to say how much I enjoyed your presentation last night. You delivered an energized performance at a time when most are slowing down. Many of the things you said resonated with me, both personally and professionally. I started my career many years ago with a large company and had so many wonderful managers/mentors at the time. You reminded me of that style, and unfortunately, one has to look very far and wide to find it in business these days.” – Elizabeth Dow, HR Generalist – CI-Group
