She was so helpful to put list together for other speakers we were looking to engage for other topics and to help us learn more about our speaker, Dr. Makary. Marissa was a seamless turnover and extremely helpful to coordinate conversations and information with Dr. Makary. Dr. Makary was more than wonderful to work with. He truly listened to all of our request for topics and really hit it home for us to engage the start of our webinar series. Due to his content we have received more engagement from prospects and clients we have not been currently working with prior. I give the full experience above 5 stars and would recommend each of you to anyone looking for a great organization and phenomenal speaker. Thanks again!
