"Everything went so well yesterday. We had a sold out event, and I didn't get anything but positive reviews about both the luncheon and presentation!"
"An excellent lecture, with clarity of reasoning and a very interesting content. It was much appreciated by all."
"Frank was incredibly generous with his thoughts and time. My staff, in particular, got a lot out of the experience. The school and the audience was amazed by his command of world politics (and history!) and it gave us lots of food for thought."
