Feedback from the 2016 SC-GMIS Leadership Summit

Thank-you for providing such a great session.  Right after lunch is always such a difficult time slot, but you have a very vivacious personality and a strong dynamic delivery style that I didn’t notice anyone suffering from the mid-afternoon slumps.   I really connected with your message.  There’s lots of times we lose sight of the fact that if we want to effect change in anyone else, it has to start with ourselves. You are a very dynamic, engaging speaker; your content was superb. " R.A.

~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue.
