Randi Zuckerberg talks about:
Her presentation was INCREDIBLY relevant to my group. You can tell she did a great deal of research on the business of my attendees and tied that all together with her expertise and knowledge... Everyone was pleased with her performance (and my group is NOT easy to please) AND we had record breaking attendance.
She was wonderful! Our campus loved her! Her message was perfect and she was the most gracious and fun speaker! What a positive experience for our students, our campus and our sponsor! She is the genuine article, and we are so proud she is our 2012 Woman of Achievement.
The event was very successful! Everyone loved Randi's speech. We were very excited to have her at CMU and hope that she visits us in the future.
