“I can't thank you enough for the fantastic presentation
of Full Circle : Inspired Lives and Inspired Legacies. Your remarks
presented the “high road,” focusing on values, aspirations,
and dreams, and how, through philanthropy, one can work to achieve
these objectives. There were more than 56 influential women in
attendance. I have had fabulous feedback from attendees, who felt
that the program (3 hours) was inspirational as well as informational.
It hit the mark and set the stage for more to come.”
