“Our group that is difficult to universally impress was universally impressed. ‘I would like to attend a full day session with her’ was heard several times after her opening session. Mary made our planning committee look brilliant from the get go, and we did nothing other than turn the floor over to Mary.”
– Lisa Simonton, Partners in Nephology and Endocrinology (October 2018)

“Mary kicked off our new leadership initiative and had our members engaged and interacting the entire DAY. Many of our members sent me unsolicited positive feedback about her presentation, takeaways, and generally entertaining approach to leadership. Moreover, she is a delight to work with – flexible, fun, and generous. We cannot wait to work with her again.”
– Allie Barth, American Gaming Association (August 2018)
