• "By far Courtney was the best, most relevant speaker we’ve ever had.  She had us laughing and crying and totally engrossed in her story.  Courtney was truly inspirational.  If I could, I’d have her back every year."

“We’ve all heard presentations and speeches, but they don’t always leave a lasting impression. Courtney has a gift – her presentation was animated, engaging, touching, personal and interactive, not unlike improv comedy. She reached her audience both in content and in her presentation style.”

/ Procter & Gamble

“I would say that Courtney will be the best money you’ll spend. I loved her DETOUR model and how she wove in her personal story to bring it to life. She had lots of points – the internal locus of control, stop/drop/roll concept, etc. It is very easy to relate to Courtney. She has a way to truly connect to each individual. She has a unique way to understand the group she’s talking to and relates to them on their level and in their own way. That’s truly remarkable.” *
