Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation (Creating a Work Atmosphere of Less Stress, More Joy, and Increased Productivity) and the positive energy you brought to our professional development day. I wanted to share with you that we received verbally and on the evaluation form, so many great comments, regarding your presentation. Your message about teamwork really resonated with a lot of the staff, and many of our evaluations had quotes from you written on them! It was truly a beautiful day and we are so glad you were a part of it. ~ Deputy Director Diana Makhlouf, Catholic Charities
