Thank you for coming to our conference. You were a huge hit, and the reaction was extremely positive!
I recently had the privilege of not only of getting to know Brent Gleeson, co-founder and CMO of Internet Marketing Inc, but also working with him on a leadership presentation to San Diego's SAGE Executive Group earlier this month. Brent is a dynamic, young entrepreneur and business leader who has the additional distinction of being a veteran of the elite U.S. Navy SEALs. I could not recommend Brent more highly for your keynote speaker.
I heard from numerous guests in attendance during your speech, they were all blown away and considered you one of the best speakers they have ever heard.
I wanted to let you know that I have received nothing but positive feedback from the ELDP members. I have been told over and over again that you were the highlight of the event — so THANK YOU!!!
