“She was fantastic. She was so sweet and so natural and very warm to everyone who came up to speak with her. Her talk on Haiti was eloquent and moving. She also took questions at the end about women's health care, health reform, etc. and was fabulous. She is really smart and honest and gave thoughtful and new answers to questions that you might expect canned answers to. She expressed herself beautifully. We couldn't be happier.”
“Nancy Snyderman…is under priced for the value she brought yesterday. The spouses replied ‘she was the best speaker we ever had,’ ‘it was like she knew us’ and ‘Ms. Snyderman is the most genuinely sincere person on the planet.’ If I booked her now to give the spouse speech every year for the next ten years, they’d love it.”
