Sample Testimonials

Thanks once again for your presentation and workshop. It was very well-received by our faculty, staff, and students. It has given a lot to us to ponder about on how we interact with our students, how we teach, and provided significant insights on the changes each of us need to implement to provide an inclusive environment in our classrooms.

Thank you so much for leading the session yesterday! Everyone thought you did such a great job. It was so informative and engaging.

Thank you so much – your talk was engaging and terrific for touching on key components of the Forum. You seem to have a real comfort level with the technology and its use while attending to the audience through chat – that is a talent supreme. 

You were absolutely fantastic!! Attendees can’t stop raving. You set such an important tone for our convening.

Dr Addy was a terrific speaker and really motivated me to make some changes in my courses. I can’t attend all the dates of either of the work sessions (just parts) but I’ve got her book on order downtown. I’m thankful to {name] for inviting Dr Addy to work with us this summer!

Very informative. I could have easily listened for another hour or so.
