“I wanted to take a moment the Thank You for speaking to the Illinois Association of Mutual Insurance Companies as our closing speaker! Your humorous message had our members laughing out loud and smiling as they left. THANK YOU! I have had so much fun with all of your items! Your message made us all realize that it's how we deal with life's obstacles that determine our attitudes. In addition, you brought daily frustrations to the table, things everyone could relate to, and showed them how the "reaction" will determine the final outcome - mentally as well was physically! I will proudly recommend you to our state associations as well as at our National level. Every group, regardless of the industry, will truly benefit from your program! Best of luck - keep smiling and keep bringing laughter into our world!”
Jackie Rakers, Illinois Association of Mutual Insurance Companies
“Thank you very much for speaking at our recent Division Conference. It goes almost without saying that you were a huge hit! As you may know, staff and management in banking supervision can be a "tough" crowd as we are trained to be skeptical. Not only did they respond to your humorous take on difficult situations, your message about finding humor in them is very relevant and timely in light of market conditions. Again thank you for contributing to the success of our conference.”
