“Whether speaking to a group of 150 or 1,000, CrisMarie and Susan are dynamic, inspiring, and credible. On stage, they captivated the crowd, bridging the cultural gap between two merging organizations. I found them personal and professional, fun, easy to work with, and sensitive to our needs. We also loved the subsequent off-sites they did with our leadership team.”

The audience listened attentively and stayed long afterward to ask Susan and CrisMarie more about their presentation. We were also impressed with our board results when they came back to facilitate a two-day team session.”
