David McCabe, Senior Editor of Education | CMAA World Conference

Thank you Mr. Vincent Phipps for your outstanding professionalism and public speaking skills. He has used these skills to deliver excellent education to our chapter on two occasions. Vincent did an outstanding job of making each topic relevant to our needs and interacting with our attendees. The feedback I received following the event was consistently positive and included several requests to have Vincent return to our chapter in the near future. The feedback was also complimentary to his presentation and communication skills from both younger and established managers alike. Following this exciting initial experience, I contacted Vincent to return to our chapter following the summer.
