Testimonials “Behind the scenes at the White House, she saw firsthand that we can best “achieve ourselves” by helping others, but that doing so requires us to go beyond our good intentions with a determination not to be distracted and a commitment to building partnerships with those who share our goals. This book shows she learned the lesson well.” -- President Bill Clinton“You were amazing to work with, which is definitely not the case with many EMCEEs! Your message was so compelling and you had the audience eating out of your hand. I’m definitely recommending you to any and all clients who need a fabulous keynote.

We’re delighted you joined us as the emcee and a keynote!

You are clearly a unique, one-of-a-kind communicator!” -- John Samford, President Media West Events “She is an outstanding communicator as I know from her sparkling appearances on Frost Over The World.
