What People Say

  • "Thank you again for coming to Boeing yesterday and addressing our engineers and finance managers. Your session was informative, memorable and fun. Practical guidance on business manners and courtesies are hard to come by these days. I especially appreciated the hand outs and your tips on conversations and introductions. I hope you can return in 2014 for another session." —Terralee Read More
