Here is what people have said.
“I have reviewed the participant surveys from the MGMA Midwest Section Conference in Chicago where you presented a general session, a workshop and an optional session for members.
On session content, you received the highest rating of all sessions on the workshop topic of “Keeping Yourself Positive During Challenging Times.” (4.87 out of 5.) Your results were even more impressive in speaker effectiveness. You received the top two ratings of all speakers and 3 of the top 4 ratings.
As program chair, I was most pleased with your professionalism in creating presentations pertinent to our membership and in your presentations to the conference. I would highly recommend you as a speaker.”
