Chris, thank you so much for this wonderful review! It was absolutely my pleasure to speak at your school's assembly and I'm hoping the students continue to reflect on and implement what they took away from my talk. Thanks again, and thanks for all you do for students!

Daphne approached the development of the speaker topic with professionalism and care. She took the lead to follow up and made suggestions to make sure the two sessions were a success. She delivered high-quality sessions and the trainees that attended the event loved her. Her delivery was so engaging. I wish we had more time. I plan to continue collaboration on future projects. I highly recommend Daphne as a speaker and workshop development to meet your specific needs and will deliver high engagement of your audience.
