"Julie's speech on creativity and innovation was right on target for our scientists, who constantly need to generate new ideas in the lab. The creativity exercises for left and right brain thinking showed how important it is to get ideas from all sources and be able to connect those ideas to come up with a new and unique innovation. It was fun, entertaining and educational."

Your visit to our charter school was exceptional. The panel was a bright light for our kids. They were inspired by the group, more than they will even say. Some times with kids it is just the smallest tiniest detail that sparks a change, a life time – And you may not even know it on that day, but later when they mention an influence while collaborating on a project or dreaming or planning their future. We need more visits like yours, to spark the idea you were spreading. Anything worth doing is a challenge, but a challenge is what makes waking up in the morning worthwhile. You inspired our staff, as well. Teachers have cited your panel when dreaming of curriculum, project ideas for service in the community – starting something new.
