"Great webinar for new team members! Even our seasoned team members were like - oh my - we need to double check on some of these. Very good presentation. Kathy is ALWAYS a pleasure to listen to and watch! Her knowledge is great and she delivers this eloquently. No matter what the question - she responds very professionally and always states to follow up with her if the question needs further clarification. This is greatly appreciated.”
