“..this is the highest rated session we’ve ever sponsored.”

“I was so moved, not only emotionally, but also moved in my conscience to do something more than just sit and listen. Your presentation motivated me to share these strategies with all of my colleagues. I can only hope to speak as brilliantly as you. Thank you for not only challenging me to act, but for equipping me with the tools to make a meaningful contribution to patient safety.”
