Carol Drummond, Owner, Drummond Design | COSE Small Business Conference
“As the member task team leader of the COSE Small Business Conference, I reviewed many of the workshops available to our roughly 1,500 attendees. Robin Sacks was the most inspiring and memorable workshop speaker I reviewed. The audience was fully engaged and anticipating the hook at the end of each example she presented. Her energy and insights left those in attendance wanting more. Robin presented so many useful and practical analogies and tricks to remember when helping the audience get out of their own way. I know I have used and related many of them to my people, and I'm sure the rest of those in attendance have as well. She would be an asset as a presenter to any gathering of people looking to make a marked change for the better i

You will not be disappointed. I hope to see/hear her speak again!”
