"I haven’t seen anyone hold a room like Heather just did... mind blown!"

"Heather is a captivating, impassioned speaker, she had the focus of the audience as soon as she began speaking. Heather is not only engaging in her story telling but is also able to inspire audience advocacy and bring them along with her on the journey to understanding diversity, inclusion and what it takes to reach personal fulfillment.  Several audience members stated that they were determined to translate what they had gained from Heather back in to their workplace and personal life. I believe that there are certain people put on this earth to share and communicate learnings in order to enrich our lives and inspire- and I believe that Heather is one of these people."
