In a survey conducted following the event, over 96% of the associates agreed that Mr. Hanson was "extremely skilled" in his craft. In addition, over 90% of the associates found what Mr. Hanson had to say applicable to their current job. What more could you ask of a speaker?

Today was a special day. For many years, we have posted wildly successful results, built strong relationships ... and enjoyed fulfilling careers. Today, though, our team "felt" something special.

In the downpour of uncertainty, confusion and change, you provided a beacon that will help guide not only their minds but also their hearts.
