   Speaking Testimonials

"That was the best talk I have ever heard."
Ruth Daley, Member, UUFP

"[Your speech] was delightful. You are a very wise lady, and while I already knew that you were smart, adding "wise" to that, while not a surprise by any sense, is neat."

"You could be my commencement speaker any day. Indeed, had you been, I might have gotten things right a lot sooner than I did."

Fred Beste, Senior Partner, Mid-Atlantic Venture Fund

"She can read the audience, frame the message, exact a response. To give a specific example, she did a superb job on an Alumni day panel with Pete Musser (CEO of Safeguard Scientifics) and Austin Furst (CEO of Vestron) where the points she made came echoing back from the folks as we mingled at the reception later."
Jack Bradt, Founder & CEO (retired), SI Handling, Inc.

"Excellent, best I've attended in years."
Georgine McCool, Executive, Maier's Bakery

"Your talk was informative and spellbinding. Did you notice, one could have literally heard a pin drop. More, please."

"CJ has a way of connecting with her audience and her enthusiasm is contagious. What an inspiring morning."
Carole Hovis, Board of Directors, UUFP

"Presenters were knowledgable and also engaging - CJ (Chris Rhoads speaking on IT) was the most engaging. The discussion/presentation on Technology Supporting Marketing reminded us the necessity of revising critical marketing concepts and the importance of using computer technology to help increase sales and our exposure. Good overview of the web as a marketing tool."
CEO Roundtable Attendees, Do or Die Marketing, Manufacturer Resource Center CEO Forum

Your exemplary delivery held my interest and spoke of confidence and knowledge. It's amazing how many times we are exposed to a topic and sometimes it just doesn't sink in. We appreciate you!"
