Cyndi Lehr: 



Kathy Zawaski is an excellent speaker.  She spoke for 90 minuites, address questions along the way.  Engaged the audienced well.  Great information.

This Quick Start Seminar filled (30) with 5 person on the waitlist.  Three registered particpants were a no show.  In the future may possibly add more people if there is a wait list.  he Baker Room is pretty full with 30 chairs, take two people to set up due to moving heavy tables.  Also, one person posts down stairs to direct participants to Baker Room.  Then second person watches the door for the first 15 minutes to decrase any interruptions for late arrivals.  


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
