On behalf of everyone at ACTFL, I want to thank you for a spectacular keynote address. We have received numerous positive remarks about your presentation. It is so nice to have a keynote speaker who takes the time to customize a presentation the way you did. I want to thank you for doing the book signing, too. Our attendees bought over 300 copies of your book. Your willingness to stay longer to meet and greet attendees was appreciated

On behalf of the board and staff, I’d like to thank you for gracing our 2011 APPL convention with your wondrous keynote. I, for one, was awed but the feedback we’ve received this year was simply fantastic, with the prevailing thought being this year’s keynotes were perhaps the best we’ve ever assembled. We consistently heard such feedback as ‘raised the bar,’ ‘the best,’ ‘out of the park,’ and more. Our participants ranked your keynote as one of the best ever.

Dear Milton: It’s always a treat to be in your company but today was especially thrilling. Thanks for gracing us with your wisdom, passion and articulation of the issues and the exciting ways to work out of our education crisis.

Thank you for presenting at Brownell-Talbot’s 21st Century Education Lecture and leading our faculty in-service. I know that many of our faculty were inspired by your talk. Your evening presentation greatly engaged the many parents, trustees, interested citizens, teachers, and school board members…I have heard nothing but positive comments, including the multimedia style of your presentation and your willingness to answer questions. We look forward to having your back in Omaha to tell us more.

We cannot thank you enough for being the keynote speaker last week.  We had a record number of attendees and many rave reviews. Warren [Hellman, well-known San Francisco philanthropist and education funder] said it was the best one yet.  Thanks for connecting your book and talk to our work, such as our Headlands program.  It was a lunch that will definitely benefit Aim High.

Thank you for your dynamic presentation at AEP’s national forum. You made us laugh, think and consider the possibilities for our children. We’ll hold your definition of a great school in our work every day!” [The definition, from Paul Houston of the American Association of School Administrators: “Do the children run into school as fast as they run out?”]
