She radiates such a positive attitude that she is able to easily take charge and have the crowd involved and excited about the topic and she is able to make them more open and willing to learn. I have enjoyed watching her speak and found that the time passed so quickly, the session was up before I was ready to leave! I think I could have easily listened to her for another 2 hours. I also know that Kim radiates this same enthusiasm, professionalism, and solid knowledge about her subjects even when she is not in front of a crowd. I consider her a true gem and would travel many miles, if necessary to hear her speak again." - Tracy M. Parish, CPRW, President / CareerPlan, Inc.
