Three words to describe her presentation style:

Yes, I’m active environmentalist and engaged in many business sustainability issues.
Do you have a favorite quote? What/why?
This quote by William James: “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude of mind.” I see a lot of clients and workshop participants burnt out. So much of becoming more efficient and productive is re-setting your expectations.

Head to Costa Rica and ride the Rainforest swings!
