How do we bring out the best in each other instead of driving each other crazy? That is the power of knowing your personality.

– Mary Miscisin

Mary is one of the most dynamic speakers that I’ve ever seen. She’s lively, she’s entertaining but most of all she’s educational. Quite often you have speakers that make you laugh but a week later you can’t remember what they talked about. Mary’s workshop provides priceless nuggets of information that you can use to improve yourself in both the workplace and at home. There’s definitely something about Mary.”

-Baldev Johal, California Association of School Business Officials
