“I was engaged ALL day! That is a rare quality in PD. Humour was fantastic, topics were great, he met our level of understanding, covered so much, gave practical strategies, used real life examples, was relatable.. AMAZING! I wrote 7 pages of notes and was asked by several colleagues for notes because they could not make it.”
