"Thank you, thank you and thank you for the joy you brought to so many in Austin last Friday. I am SO pleased that you joined us for our annual Nursing Symposium and contributed in a significant way to the success that day. Verbal feedback was extremely positive; and the written evaluations certainly confirm that with numerous positive comments like “she is great,” “excellent speaker,” love her,” “great catch,” “inspirational,” “very fun & energetic,” and “thoroughly enjoyed this speaker,” just to cite a few.
