Comments regarding this program:

"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."
