Ty Boyd

"Hearing Thom speak is always a treat. Unlike some presentations I've heard that are great while they are being given, but don't leave lasting impressions. Thom's 'conversation with you', interwoven with real life stories make you think, make you question, and make you reflect long after you've left the room. Now, that's what I call impact!"

Vice President
