"I wanted you to know how well the institute went and what an awesome job [you] did in meeting our every need. The entire three days -soup to nuts-was exquisitely planned and executed. The hotel was terrific, the food was fabulous, the registration process was flawless and all because of your preparation and thoughtful execution of every task. Our teachers and coaches felt like royalty and, as a result, were able to focus clearly on the presentation that Dr. Beers and Dr. Probst shared with us. They were truly awesome, too, which I know is a concensus from all who have the opportunity to hear them speak."
