“…a very vivacious person that can draw participation from any crowd. We had her speak at our local Lady Agriculture Seminar and at our state-wide employee training meeting in Springfield, IL. The crowd participation from her and to her was tremendous. Everyone was involved. We had laughter, thoughtfulness…and of course tears of joy.”

“She was funny, inspiring and had a very well-organized presentation. I would heartedly recommend her for any organization wishing to have her as a speaker. In my professional capacity as an attorney I have listened to thousands of speeches given in court by attorneys acting as advocates for their clients and very few of those attorneys gave their speeches with the level of eloquence that Mrs. King displayed at the banquet of the CPC.”

Don McClarey,
Former CPC Board President

“Our management team worked with Lesley for eight weeks. We had great people to begin with, but Lesley got us talking and thinking about things that have absolutely made a difference in our building. Your business is worth this investment.”

Karen Cochrane,

She radiates energy and optimism and it’s obvious that she loves what she does. She is a genuine ‘people’ person. I highly recommend Lesley as a speaker for any retail, service or organization.”
