Testimonials

On behalf of Rotary District 6890 and the members that recently attended the District Assembly, please accept our appreciation for a job well done. For many years we have failed to promote our organization despite the tremendous work worldwide that Rotary has done. Your presentation highlighted the challenges our organization faces and provided real time solutions that can be easily implemented and produce a significant impact by raising public awareness and opening up lines of communication both within and outside our organization. Yours is a message that other organizations like Rotary and businesses need to hear if they are to survive in the 21st Century. Peter Vaka-Rotary 6890

I want to thank you for all the great information from your lunch marketing workshop last Friday. When I left I was excited and full of ideas.  The first message I got from you that hit home was to “focus”. That hit so hard that I  knew that I need, at this time, to work on my product so that I can get to a point where the online marketing will work best for me.  Leslie Bestulic-Hers Adventures

Thank you SOOOOO much Deborah. I will get on my homework. Your class today was AMAZING, I am super excited for the next two classes. Thank you again! Amanda Dunn-First Florida Insurance
