Emerson Process Management
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping me to better understand the need for diversity in the workplace. As the HR Manager for a division of Emerson, I am responsible for our site’s Affirmative Action plan. While I have always worked to meet the letter of the law, I never truly understood the real reasons we need to build a more diverse workplace. I have attended many workshops on diversity and Affirmative Action, but I never really got it… That is, I did not understand it until you explained it. I just wanted to let you know that you reached someone and made a difference. Keep up the great work!"
"I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated your presentation at the conference yesterday. Your strategy to both communicate the reality of human nature and function, and relate to your real and very personal experience, completely revolutionized the true meanings of perception and perspective for me. The impact will help fortify my trunk as I stand amongst the other “tall trees” in our community. Thank you so much for your powerful message."
American Cancer Society
"Wanted to take a moment to again thank you for a superb presentation at the 2008 American Cancer Society Staff Conference in State College, Pennsylvania. Your instructional techniques of weaving through pedagogy (how our mind learns), sociology, psychology, and communications; diversity concepts; story telling; and humor are truly second to none. We have received wonderful responses through our staff. Accordingly, we would like to leave the door open for further work with you. "
