Wow.

All I have to say is…after your presentation, I was good to go for the day! Felt I had hit the jackpot. Thank you for taking the time to share with all of us! I have a precious six year old daughter and came just as much as for her and wanting to learn how to be the best mommy for her and raise her in an anxiety free home as I came to learn about how to use techniques in the classroom. I know they were recording your presentation. Do you by chance know if that will be available to view?? I was writing notes like crazy and came home telling everyone I know to buy your book. I would love to re-watch it. Seriously. You were amazing and such an easy to follow speaker. You spoke with poise and wisdom and with authenticity. That is hard to find these days and I truly appreciate your boldness to keep it real for us.

That was a superb presentation today, and I’ve heard lots of good conversation related to it. So many people expressed appreciation for the content, delivery, and discussion. It was exactly what we needed right now, and I just wanted to tell you that!

THE PROGRAM WAS A SLAM DUNK!

Allison was terrific, and really seemed to reach our audience’s concerns.  I have heard nothing but glowing comments.

Many, many thanks.
