Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 9, 2016From Chapel Hill, NC

Chad took the time to learn more about us and tailored his presentation just for our group. Chad is professional, talented and accommodating. We held our team retreat outdoors on an unseasonably hot and humid day. This is not the norm for Chad, who usually works indoors. But Chad is a trooper. He not only came out to speak with our group on that warm day, but he arrived early and totally prepared. I would highly recommend Chad.

Chad Willett was everything that we envisioned for our event and more! He was professional, engaging, and the information was so relevant that everyone walked away feeling so much better than when they walked in the room.
