Based on the evaluation of our conference, Jennifer was ranked at the highest level possible – 5 out of 5! Jennifer has an exuberance that is catching, and she knows her stuff so very well. I believe that she could have talked for an hour longer, and there would not have been a single complaint. We would very much thank Jennifer and you for making her presentation a tremendous success!”
