"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed meeting you, and what a great job you did at our meeting. Every single evaluation I received raved about your presentation. One of the questions on the evaluation is “What did you like best about the meeting”–you were their favorite, hands down. I hope we will be able to have you back again."
--American College of Emergency Physicians

"Beth was a workshop presenter at our annual conference in 2008. Her session was rated very highly and participants told me the information they got regarding easy free and low-cost tools for associations was very valuable. We have asked Beth to come back and speak on another topic in 2009 because of her energy, her enthusiasm and her knowledge of the association audience that she is speaking to. This gives her the added advantage of tailoring her presentation to meet their specific needs. She is easy to work with and delivers a high-quality presentation. Speaking as someone who books presenters, that is the best of both worlds."
--California Society of Association Executives
