Here are excerpts of comments about Shirley’s presentations from conference producers.

“One of the best decisions I’ve made in more than 15 years in business was inviting Shirley to keynote an industry conference. Her name alone boosted registrations, and at the end everyone thanked me for bringing her to the event. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was working with her, and I bet if you ask Shirley to speak at your conference, you’ll also sing her praises.”
Dr. Flora M. Brown
Trade Show Coordinator
The Orange County Gift Show

“Shirley is an exceptional speaker who enlightens audiences with her solo and small business topics. She’s a professional who’s always prepared, and best of all for me, she’s easy to work with. Her programs never fail to generate rave reviews from attendees!”
Suzanne Pruitt

“Working with Shirley is a wonderful experience. She came to our preliminary meetings with a spirit of team work, helping us through the process of deciding all the details and giving tips on how to make the final output better. When presenting at the show Shirley was a true professional, not missing a beat in her presentations through multiple distractions. Her style is personable, and interactive. She kept the audiences engaged and interested throughout. I would highly recommend working with Shirley.”

“Shirley spoke at one of my Tea Women Network events. Her presentation was one of the favorites judged by the feedback I got from the regular attendees. Shirley is articulate, funny and has a tremendous background in small business marketing. My guests walked away with many ways to effectively and charmingly market their small businesses. Not many speakers I’ve heard add that layer of “charm” to the marketing mix. I highly recommend Shirley whenever you need an excellent speaker, particularly in these tough times when marketing is a major key to your business success.”
