I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your outstanding presentation at our conference last week. You were simply fantastic, hilarious and motivating. We've heard some pretty amazing feedback about you and I just wanted to share. Your name was definitely circulating after your departure and I was giving out your information like crazy. I actually still am! Just the other day, I got a call from one of our attorney's in Richmond, VA asking about you. He said "That guy could have his own TV show!" Another manager, here in my office, who is rather regiment in her management style, confessed to me that your presentation will definitely make her speak and act differently when it comes to handling her own employees. Who said Rome wasn't built in one day? Wow! You really made an impact.
