Director, Event Services

Providing our members with opportunities for engagement has been critical to our organization’s success during the COVID disruption. CJ’s program brought connection and value to our members, keeping our organization relevant and delivering tangible tips to the 80+ participants that joined us. At the end of the day, it’s so important to address the human element of our workforce – and CJ does an incredible job of coaching attendees in the most vulnerable of circumstances.

CJ spoke to our group of 160+ educators on “How to do More with Less Time and Resources” and was a hit! He kept our attention with his energy, sense of humor and motivation. It was very refreshing to get tools to use immediately to make us more proficient with our time.”
