I attended the CE dinner. I left feeling inspired and motivated. I cannot wait to begin some of the changes we will be making at our hospital! Thank you for helping me see the potential in our “missed opportunities!” You are an incredible speaker.

Boehringer Ingelheim sponsored event

I attended your presentation at the VET conference in Toronto. You were a breath of fresh air. We (two CSRs and myself) thoroughly enjoyed it and took away several key learnings from our time with you. One woman commented that you made two hours fly by like it was twenty minutes.

Practice Manager

I had the pleasure of hearing you speak at the AVMA convention. You are certainly a knowledgeable and skilled speaker. Your talk on empowering your team really hit home. You manage your time well while you talk and always gave a summary that told the “what” and the “why” very concisely. I picked up many tips about how I can manage my staff meetings better!
