Client Comments for Michel Van Woudenberg
Michel Van Woudenberg travels from Turkey
- I can't recommend Michel highly enough... he took the time to participate in our conference, getting to know us and our business and then tailored his presentation around what he had learned. He was refreshing and entertaining, as well as insightful and challenging. A great presenter.
