“Galen joined us for a large sales and planning meeting with an audience consisting of very focused Commercial, Wealth Management, Private and Consumer Bank leaders. Galen effortlessly pulled this diverse audience into an hour of engagement, learning and lots of laughter. His message was relatable on both a professional and personal level and the audience reviews were top notch for him.
