What People Say

Thank you so much for connecting me to [storytelling coach] Karen! She was absolutely amazing to work with. I’m not sure I would have made it through my presentation without her. I received wonderful feedback from my keynote. Also, I’ve been asked to speak at another conference already!

Tweet from Eric Potter @pottereric The #ThatConference keynote this morning is doing a job of using storytelling to explain technical topics. Thanks @TonyaSims
