"I could have stayed at your session all morning - you have the keen ability to read people which enhances the presenters' learning experience and your calm demeanor is so reassuring - as a presenter, I felt a level of trust that allowed me to open up. (Um, you are the right balance between credibility and charisma!)"

"Cyndi recently was a keynote speaker for us. She immediately took charge of the audience and held them completely captive for her entire presentation.
