“On behalf of PMI San Diego, I would like to thank you for your outstanding presentation at our chapter dinner meeting last week. It seems everyone I talk to want me to express appreciation for your inspiring presentation. Your years of research, your depth of understanding of work environment, and your ability to present the subject in such an interesting way produced one of the most memorable evenings in PMI SD group’s history.”

“The room was buzzing with great positive energies last night at the PMI-SD meeting. I’ve been several meetings like this, but it’s rare to see a speaker raised the energy level of the entire audience.”
-Cris Tokuyama Sills, PMP, PMI San Diego Chapter

“You spoke at the PMI-San Diego Chapter dinner a couple of months ago with the topic of working and communicating with difficult people (it was great!!!).  You gave us a wonderful handout with personality types and strategies for dealing with each one. I’ve got a few of the classic types to deal with here!”
