 December 2015 testimonial

Good afternoon, Rich — Mike was great. I heard one comment that if we bring in another speaker Mike would be very hard to top! I’ve had several customers stop in today or call to tell me how much they enjoyed the evening and that they really enjoyed Mike’s presentation. We also had great attendance, and I really feel that was thanks to Mike.
