"Can I just say that the one event I attended where Stacy Pederson was the key note speaker was AMAZING! She was hilariously funny and poignantly real and deeply touching! I have literally been thinking about the things she spoke about for an entire year!! If you are thinking about hiring her- quit thinking and just do it! You will not regret it! (And by the way, she probably has zero idea of who I am, what event I attended or why the heck I am even writing this. Basically, I am just a person who was blessed by her words and her authenticity. I am not paid or even asked to write a single word of this.- She is just that good!)" ....Trisha Winslow
