Mediacom

Samantha’s personable manner, and honest informative presentations really engaged the crowd and we found that people were very willing to speak about themselves and pose questions in a relaxed setting. We could instantly see how valuable it was to have someone who was qualified to talk on the very subjective topic of ‘happiness’.
