It couldnít have been any better for a group of university students. It got us really, really excited.

It was the best presentation Iíve ever seen! I learned useful ways to achieve, rather than moping around at home, telling my mother I donít care about school.

It spoke to me in so many ways. I am a mother, wife, college student, and career woman, and it gave me the encouragement and knowledge to be great in whatever I do.

I feel better after the workshop, because I used to think I was the only person who struggled to find my passion and career.

I thought it was fantastic, very entertaining and funny. A lot of presentations are word-heavy, and I liked that this one also had pictures.

I love the way it merges art and business. Business needs innovation and art needs practicality and this is a good merge of the two.
