I have been meaning to email you to thank you and let you know we have had some great feedback.

You took great initiative with managing times and breaks beyond my expectations and were better than I could ever imagine keeping people on time and interested and keeping it light hearted.            (The Melba Group)

The conference went brilliantly and Robert (Beau Stetson Cowboy) was awesome. I really think that the difference you provide creates an atmosphere for cultivating a superb friendly environment.
