I initially hired Duane on less than 4 weeks’ notice. I had a major speech to deliver and I was frightened. In my first meeting with him I told him I had no desire to do public speaking in the future. With one week to go before my speech, I couldn’t wait to deliver it! I knew I had a great speech – with help from Duane – and I knew I had a great message. Duane’s teachings gave me the confidence I needed to successfully make a public speech. I ended up with a standing ovation and many comments from audience members who said they were profoundly affected by what I had said. I’m waiting for my next opportunity to speak!
