From the booking process, to the selection of topics, to travel arrangements, to the day of the seminar, everything was very easy. Dan and all of his staff made the entire process easy to plan and book our daylong seminar.
“I had heard Dan speak before and knew that he would be perfect for our relatively small continuing education event. The handouts that Dan provided allowed me to easily follow along and make notes as I had Ah Ha moments throughout the day. Dan provided 9 hours of continuing education and it was all highly informative and useful. As the sponsor paying the bill I know that I took away information and ideas that will allow me to more than recoup the speaking and travel costs.”
“What an informative, sacred cow challenging day. It was filled with enough wit to keep the mood light and information and ideas to challenge my practices and perceptions. Dan is always informative, engaging, and entertaining.”
