"On very short notice Bob cleared his schedule and graciously presented at our meeting when the original Speaker was unable to attend. Last week Bob set the tone for our two-day leadership meeting and gave us all a motivational lift. His compassion and true interest in people was clearly evident, making him very credible. He shared some great stories, has a wealth of experience and knowledge and it was a pleasure listening to him. His down-to-Earth style makes it easier to retain the information presented. He also followed up with additional info and handouts, cementing his message of building bridges, not walls. Fantastic job, Bob, and thanks again!"
