Carol had real "rock star" power for them and she could not have been more gracious about it! She was willing to pose for pictures, sign books (we had provided a copy of Mindset for all attendees) and chat with attendees. So many came up to her just to share how much her work has meant to them and how much they enjoyed her talk. It was so gracious and kind of her to take the time to speak with everyone - they really appreciated it and I really appreciated her being so considerate of their excitement and making their day for them! Many attendees stopped by our registration area on Saturday as the conference wrapped up to share how nice it was to meet her, hear her talk and have their book signed.

Carol was phenomenal! She is a consummate professional, humble, and witty.
Her husband was also a hoot!

People from all of the events, especially our GPS faculty, were genuinely grateful for her presentations and the Q&A she had with them. It was a great event!
