“Terry spoke at a UniGroup national sales conference and did an outstanding job. His presentation skills are impeccable, as well as his knowledge. He is an excellent speaker for any occasion.” – Susan Vollmer, Contract Manager, UniGroup
“Terry was a delight to work with for our event. What I appreciated most was Terry’s sincere dedication to make the experience as great as possible for everyone involved. From the moment I initially contacted him to inquire about his availability to our planning conversations leading up to the event to the final preparations the day of the presentation, he was extremely attentive to our needs and goals of the occasion. He took the time to learn our industry vernacular, participate in the meeting and visit with attendees throughout the day prior to his time on the agenda. I truly feel like these efforts were the reason his presentation was so well-received by our membership.” – Stacy Howeth, Director of Member Services, Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives
“Terry, I enjoyed your recent presentation at the Region V Association of Career and Technical Education (ACTE) Conference in Bozeman, MT. Your ability to relate to the audience of educators was appreciated throughout your discussion about soft skills. Your targeted, yet gentle, discussion about trust, respect, communication and consistency was an excellent choice for the ‘leadership’ focused day on the program. I also appreciated your follow up session as reinforcement for some recent mentoring I was doing about how to deal with stress, anger, discouragement and criticism and still remain professionally and personally connected. Thanks for hitting the mark in both presentations for me.” – Nancy J. Trivette, Association for Career & Technical Education, National President
