Participant Comments

The workshop was a very positive experience for me and my staff. Ms. Fritchman presented relevant information in a way that was clear, engaging, and well-documented. Her printed resources were very helpful. She balanced presentation was audience interaction well. She responded to audience comments in a respectful way.
