Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 7, 2023From Cleveland, OH

Thoroughly enjoyed Chad! He was the first to respond after receiving our interest in a speaker for our company. He was flexible to our evolving needs, as our meeting went from in-person to virtual. Met with us to further discuss our wants/needs in preparation of the speaking engagement. Lots of great feedback about Chad from our team. Thank you!
