Recently I had Shelly speak at my event with an audience of female entrepreneurs. She presented a terrific session filled with superb content and worked with the attendees to address their individual questions. The group was engaged and were able to take away several strategies that could be implemented easily. Shelly is an expert in her field and I would highly recommend her as a professional speaker.

Thank you for your participation in our Small Business Forum.  When planning events there are two things I look for in our speakers…expert level in content and a confident presence on stage.  You, Shelly, excelled in both areas.  It was a pleasure to have you present.  Our attendees appreciated your valuable information
