Kathy doesn’t tell you how to do it; she shows you. That’s credibility.
While Silicon Valley may still be the hotbed of innovation, the professionals and experts who present the hottest android apps often sound like androids themselves! We should all take a lesson from Kathy on how to present compelling, useful information. I walked away with at least 3 solid ideas and reoxygenated my blood from laughing!
Kathy’s expertise shines. She provided great insights our team will use to every advantage. And her enthusiasm, humor and energy made an outstanding Brand Team All-Hands!
