have attached the comments from your keynote evaluations and I
have never in my life read more powerful reflections from
a 2 hour presentation. It's amazing! Maybe you should market
yourself as being in the business of personal transformation
and spiritual healers. Please share the evaluations with your
colleagues with our most sincere appreciation. And if you ever
need a strong reference for your work, send them my way.
