Sampling of Feedback from Past Speaking Engagements
Scholar In Residence: Retreat Facilitator
“Gratitude In The Workplace”
“I am grateful beyond words for your enthusiasm, knowledge and presentation last week. We were touched by your words and they have already, in just four days, translated into a “gratitude” fest. All joking aside, I believe the staff took everything you said to heart. For example, the staff sent the volunteers who covered the office while we were away thank you notes. It transformed the volunteers…they were so thrilled. I received several thank you notes for doing what I did (that was nice).
You have a gentle and yet strong way of presenting ideas that stick. Well done!!!! Your presentation will last for a very long time to come.”
Rabbi Richard Steinberg, Congregation Shir Ha-Ma’alot.
Speaker to Congregants: “How Parents Can Successfully Manage the Transition to Empty Nesting”
“Eileen knew that within our community, there was a need for people to share their life experiences. The session she conducted to help parents prepare for the empty nest was at once insightful, emotional and funny. Eileen created a safe space for everyone to learn and share. The conversation continued into the parking lot…and beyond!”
Rabbi Leah Lewis, The Jaffe Family Associate Rabbinic Chair Congregation Shir Ha Ma’alot
Seminar Presentation to Hotel Staff: “Secrets of Communication”
“I personally felt it was helpful and necessary, especially in the hotel business. It would be nice if La Quinta did this at least every 3 to 6 months. Thank you for this excellent presentation. I need more meetings like this. You are a really good person for this. Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge.”
Shane Herholtz, General Manager and others
