"I took your course, lived by your instructions, and took my 3 panelist's on the journey. Result was solid. The MC noted that the conversation really flowed naturally and it felt like the panelists really understood the citation of content we were getting through. You gave me confidence and direction to turn something I was looking at with considerable fear into something I really enjoyed!"
