Tom was great. Our attendees were engaged and he was great to take their questions beyond the one hour mark. I would definitely recommend him as a speaker! The timing of his presentation – 2 weeks before the election was also a great bonus.
Thank you, Tom! Great to meet you. Our members really enjoyed the topic and your comments. And I’m glad you got to stay with us at Mastro’s for dinner.
