Your presentation was engaging, practical and useful. I was impressed with the creativity of your slides which were both informative and educational – a great combination.  In addition you spent time finding slides that were customized to our group. You were very approachable, knowledgeable and generous with sharing of your wisdom. You gave clear guidance that we could immediately use.  Your presentation was more in depth than most I have heard which give very basic and superficial information that is obviously only a bait to entice you to buy their services. You appeared sincere and wanted to give us information we can use — which we can. I will highly recommend you as a speaker. And you did it again Toby – with including this special made presentation for me on this coach. You model what you teach beautifully!  – Jennifer Whittaker, Halogenex
