Dean, I am still receiving rave reviews on your Rocks Talk! Thank you for speaking at the Rocks Digital Marketing Conference. The information you shared on achieving Big PHAT Goals was invaluable.

Dean was a great fit for our global team meeting because his message about Progress Leadership was perfect for our company at this time. We are in the process of merging two companies together and we needed inspiration and attitude to make the needed progress quickly. Dean message was timely, energizing and funny but most importantly right on point.
