“What an amazing seminar Rachel Thomas did today!! The topic was Interpersonal Dynamics and she covered a lot of ground in a highly interactive way. She incorporated great video clips to relay meaningful ideas!
She was so engaging and warm that it felt like a very safe place. There was a lot of impactful information but it was never overwhelming. It was simply amazing and real. It was a great privilege to have her as Auction.com Network of Women’s inaugural speaker. Thank you again Rachel for your generosity and beautiful energy. We appreciate you!!!”
