"On behalf of the Soroptimist
International of the Marianas, I wanted to
write and express my heartfelt gratitude to
you for arranging for Patricia & Ken Ball
to speak. The conference was a huge success
and those that attended were extremely
satisfied. We conducted a conference
evaluation and the only negative comment we
heard was that the conference wasn't long
enough! The Balls were a dynamic speaking
team and provided an information-packed
seminar. We all learned new skills in
communicating, both in our personal lives
and within the work environment."

the Marianas - Guam
"The results are in! Comments from attendees indicate that you
were one of the best speakers we have had
for our first-timers session of our
National Business Travel Association
convention. We particularly appreciated the
research and customizing you did to put
together your program. Polling each member
of our Board for their feedback and sending
them a complimentary copy of your book, as
a reward for their time, was a stroke of
genius. One Board member commented on your
professionalism, saying 'that's what it's
like when you work with a professional
Director of Meetings & Conventions
"The majority of comments stated that
the sessions simply were not long enough -
they want more time with the speaker! Comments such as these are a testament to
your skills as a great speaker on the topic
of Leadership. Having six two-hour sessions
over two days is very taxing - your energy
level had to be at the same level for the
first session as it was for the last - and
you did it!"
Director, Human Resources
"I would like to personally extend
our appreciation for the superb
presentation you made. Your insight and wit
provided entertainment, as well as
meaningful guidance to the 400+ audience
members present for your address on
'Winning With Power Communications.'"

"Your presentation 'Winning With
Powerful Communications' was a major
highlight of this year's International
Women in Aviation conference. The
information you provided was right on
target. The evaluations of those who heard
you speak were glowing with remarks
indicating you provided very helpful and
insightful clues regarding how to be a
powerful communicator, both verbally and
nonverbally. Your references to comments
from individuals within our organization
made your talk very personal."
Peggy Baty, Ed.D.

"Outstanding! Your recent
presentations for the Clinical Laboratory
Management Association were right on
target. Some comments taken from your
evaluations are as follows:
Many good examples.
Program was one of the best and most
Good reinforcement plus some new ways of
looking at things.
Good 'how to.'
Good, practical information.
One evaluator even assumed you were a
former medical technologist - obviously
interviewing some of our people and doing
your homework certainly paid off!"

"Patricia was a professional from our
first encounter by phone through her
appearance and attendance at this important
meeting. Patricia hit the presentation on
the mark. She presented all of the points
we needed her to reinforce. She kept the
audience engaged throughout the
presentation, but most importantly,
Patricia's presentation provided a positive
message regarding change that we so
desperately needed delivered by a reputable
speaker, such as Patricia."
Corporate Marketing Manager
"I would like to express my
appreciation for your outstanding
presentations 'Making Customer Service Your
Top Priority' and 'Train the Trainer.' I
have heard nothing but positive comments
about the program, ranging from 'She's the
greatest! to 'In my ten years at
Mallinckrodt, this was the most interesting
and helpful program I have ever attended."
