I recently worked in San Diego, California for a group of teachers from the Department of Defense called STARBASE. It was a cool group of educators tasked with getting “at risk” kids fired up about math and science. It’s not a military group, but these “schools” are mainly on military bases, so there are plenty of retired military folks there as well as civilian teachers.
My awesome meeting planner, Cindy, just wrote the kindest note. Check it out:
I wanted to thank the National Speakers Bureau for suggesting Brad Montgomery for the 2009 STARBASE Professional Development Conference and let you know what a fantastic performance he gave.
Brad arrived mid-morning for his afternoon performance and spent some time visiting with myself and the attendees during lunch and breaks. We had no idea that he would be able to incorporate the information he gathered so quickly into his afternoon performance. Nor did I anticipate just how “on target” he would be with his comedy and message.
His ideals on attitude were in complete alignment with the conference goals which included increasing the teachers’ awareness of attitude and relationships toward the good of the STARBASE program. The information and skills he shared during the conference provided the participants with the skills to make real changes in both their professional and personal lives.
Again, I express our thanks. Brad’s presentation was greatly appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was a great way to end the conference with a positive attitude. He truly knocked this one out of the park!
Aw Shucks. That’s so cool. Thanks Cindy.
