“The excitement in the room was obvious.  You did an amazing job of educating and entertaining this huge group!  As a result, we have invited you back to speak at another conference 6 months from now in Atlantic City.   We have never invited a speaker back so quickly as we have with you.”

Margaret O'Neal, Director of Education and Certification

" After seeing you at a conference, Lisa, from our Casper division recommended you when I was organizing our Speaker list.  So glad she did!! The feedback was great. I hope you enjoy reading about the impact you made on our attendees!  Some thought the closing speaker was going to have big shoes to fill to measure up, but Lorna McLaren knocked it out of the park! Very energetic and engaging speaker. Perfect finale. Once again, thank you for joining us in San Antonio. It was such a pleasure to meet you and hear your beautiful message.

“Both of your sessions were excellent – the crowd loved your presentation style, information and interactive exercises.  The most consistent comments were to have you back again and that they had fun.  Certainly when someone can make learning as much fun as you do, I would like to talk to you about next year's conference.
