Chad did such a great job speaking to our team for our 10th Anniversary Party we threw in St Charles. Chad was funny, captivating, and insightful as he delivered a great talk about doing more than "thinking outside the box", but by "smashing the box". Everyone was very impressed and spoke very highly of his energy and speech after the event and we will definitely invite Chad back for future events.
