I continue to receive a significant amount of positive feedback from our members.

”It makes it so much easier to prepare and feel ready day-of when we are lucky enough to have someone as fabulous as you running the show and directing the content.
It's really true that all our speakers were, without fail, incredibly at ease and forthcoming in your hands, and because of that, I think we had some really strong takeaways. We are so, so thrilled with how the afternoon went--from the dialogue with Katharine and Jostein to Carla and the business case panel, and of course Gina. I think it struck just the right tone of reinvigorating the audience and celebrating what we've done so far while not giving into any complacency.Erin CallahanExecutive Director, Climate Collaborative, part of the Natural Products Expo, March 2018 (Emcee, Keynote and Interviewer)
