"Your keynote speakers always intrigue me. 

I don't always understand why you choose them until I hear them speak.  Then it's obvious."

"I like that it's not in the cities.  We can get really good training in our community

and not have to drive so far.  Thanks!

~Jenny, 2012

"You always manage to find such wonderful teachers!"

~Paula, 2012

These trainings energize me!  I need these to keep me going. 

Going out to trainings to be with people is more valuable than the trainings themselves.
