Derick, thank you so much for accommodating our last minute booking. You saved the day! Hilarious, wildly funny, and able to connect with our large and diverse audience without making anyone feel excluded, I'm impressed with your versatility and adaptability. You catered to our rather complex needs beautifully and rolled with the typical convention planning foibles like a champ.We will definitely be hiring you for our next convention, per the express request of several of our board members and consumers! They listed you as the best and "most valuable" and "informative" part of the whole 4 day event. Thank you again.You are a rockstar!
