“I have had the privilege of speaking on stage to audiences all over the world. I have also sat in the audience and listened to some of the greatest speakers of all times. In my humble opinion, Jackie Freiberg is one of the very BEST I have ever heard. She has an inner passion to help people to succeed. She motivates a crowd of folks to join in for a cause.
