“You did such an amazing job with the presentation and I have to be honest – we had some excellent speakers over two days but none got a standing ovation!”

“You are the first person I have heard of that has been through something similar, although much worse than I can even imagine and I just had to tell you our story and tell you how much I admire you. I will never stop thinking about your performance.”
