Feedback received from Keynote at the National Speakers Association (NSA) conference- Orlando, Florida - USA: 

I loved your program on unconscious bias at the National Speakers Association. In the 17 years I’ve attended, yours is one of my favorites.

You challenged us to reconsider the assumptions we made. The unique way you illustrated your points are what I will remember.

Social thought leader, executive, race car driver, oil rig worker, speaker - you are none of the things anyone would expect. But all of the things that you are make your message one that is unforgettable, undeniable and one that needs to be heard.
