A very big thank you for a quite an outstanding presentation/workshop. In the 3 years that I have been with MSI, yours was unquestionably one of the very best sessions we have had and this is a view echoed by many of the members. There were so many takeaways from the day that I hope people will be able to apply some of what they discussed and learned. I hope you enjoyed it all yourself and that you can reflect on a job well done.

The level of trust and comfort among the agents s a tribute to [Greg’s] style: [he doesn’t] just present information but rather [he] connects with people and make them comfortable enough to talk about the very real, albeit sensitive topics that face every family that works together.
