Educators and Scholars speak about Jeff Davidson’s programs on Breathing Space®: Living and Working at a Comfortable Pace in a Sped-Up Society
Thank you for a very informative presentation. I would appreciate it if you could send me an extra packet of the information used at the sessions. I would also like the information on the future predictions on age, etc. that you used as overhead transparency material. I teach Family and Consumer Science Education and would use the information as a resource for the various classes on health, relationships, and job education.
Marie Wolsky, Family and Consumer Science Education Instructor Bisbee-Egeland High School, Bisbee, ND
Nice show last Friday. Many thanks for providing a thoughtful, lively celebration for all of us.
Ed Tower, Ph.D., Professor and Director, Undergraduate Economics Studies Duke University, Durham NC
I enjoyed meeting you and speaking with you, and listening and absorbing your presentation. Your enthusiasm was contagious! I’ll be attending Georgetown University this fall to study for my Ph.D. in international affairs… Thank you for assisting me. I look forward to your your tape on Breathing Space.
Ken Rutherford, International Rescue Committee, Denver, CO
Our office staff participated in your conference titled “Surviving Information Overload: Proven Strategies for Better Managing Your Time.” Our group found the experience to be informative and entertaining. Thank you for sharing your insights and techniques.
Kathy McCarty, Administrative Assistant-Learning Services Rock Valley College, Rock Valley, IL
I really enjoyed and appreciated your talk last week. Your presentation was one of the best I have ever attended, both in style of presentation and content of material. As a professional who runs communication skills improvement groups for business and professional leaders, I can honestly say that your speech was a classic for “how to do it!” You had the audience captivated during the entire time, which is quite a feat after lunch! In the past, we have been inundated with “quick fix” consultants in time management. You go far beyond that tactic and offer us lifetime suggestions for improvement. I threw away almost 40 bags of office garbage and now have a clean desk! I have made many of the suggested changes in my own life, and my colleagues say I am much more organized these days. Thanks!
Dr. Celia R. Hooper, Clinic Director, Speech and Hearing Center University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC
Thanks so much for speaking before our group at Duke University. Information overload is a real problem for most researchers. Your solution is eminently practicable. I hope we can invite you back again.
Dr. Thomas Havrilesky, Professor of Economics, Duke Univ., Durham, NC
Jeff, your presentations at the FBLA-PBL Management Series Conference were indeed excellent. The national and state officers and their advisers shared many positive comments with me regarding your sessions. I enjoyed working with you and having the opportunity to get to know you better. Thank you for your good work.
Douglas L. Barber, Executive Vice President Future Business Leaders of America, Washington, DC
Laid out in front of me are just a few of the various handouts you shared with members of the audience last night. This collection of paper is truly impressive; valuable information for just general orientation as well as lots of practical pointers for daily use. Jeff, last night as the speaker for the May meeting, you turned the evening into a fantastic experience. Thanks for changing your travel plans to include us. We are grateful.
Dr. Ralph Hillman, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, TN
I was pleased to learn of the topic on stress scheduled for our State Government Planners Meeting. Not only was your information interesting and useful, but you stayed focused. Your remarks were vto the point, clear, and easy to follow. Almost everyone likes handouts; they keep note taking to a minimum. Thanks! It was an evening well spent, and I look forward to reading your books. Maybe I’ll get another chance to hear you. I hope so.
Fran Leggett, Instructional Services Section North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, Raleigh, NC
I am a student at UNC-Wilmington, and I attended the SMEI meeting where you gave a presentation. As a graduating senior, I found your speech to be very enlightening. I will follow the “fresh air” principles and other recommendations as you have discussed them. I believe these will benefit me in my upcoming career. I enjoyed your presentation and feel breathing space is essential to everyone.
Andrea L. Barber, senior, University of North Carolina, Wilmington, NC
It was a pleasure to meet you, too, and to hear your thoughts on personal achievement. I believe you have a point about the 25’s! I am still intrigued by your remarks on “mastering the moment.” We are placing an order for your books and will look forward to seeing your future titles emerge. I wish you every success.
Cathryn Allen, Adult Services Librarian, City of Southfield, Southfield, MI
Thank you! It was a great night, and your insight made it so. Thank you for giving us your time and expertise in presenting your insights. Your observations were right on target, and well presented. All in all, you have certainly impressed us with your knowledge as well as your ability in writing. Best wishes and our great appreciation.
Dr. Marilyn Liebrenz-Himes, Professor of Business Administration George Washington University, Washington, DC
I want to commend and thank you for the excellent seminar you conducted for us last Saturday. You will find by reading the enclosed student evaluations that the participants were well pleased with your performance and the factual information you disseminated.
Paul J. Hartman, Manager, Marketing Education Service, Arlington, VA
Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule and sharing your expertise about information gathering. Your session was well received by our membership at the annual workshop. Many of the participants lamented that there wasn’t more time! Again, thanks for participating. Your experience and expertise certainly were appreciated.
Deborah Auerbach-Deutsch, Workshop Coordinator Washington Education Press Association, Washington, DC
I attended your lecture last Wednesday night in Washington. I greatly enjoyed your lecture and believe that the information you dispensed will be a great help. Thank you for the additional material.
Sally A. Russell, Photo Librarian, World Wildlife Fund, Washington DC
I attended your seminar on “Stress Management” while aboard the Celebrity cruise ship Meridian. My sister and I both enjoyed your seminar; you presented several interesting points and helpful ideas in that short time, and especially impressive to us was that you presented this information with a good sense of humor. The relaxed atmosphere was calming and as it turned out we both really benefitted from it, and have not only talked about it several times since then between ourselves, but also mentioned some of your “helpful hints” to others.
Nancy Nelson, University of California, Davis, College of Engineering
After hearing your presentation at the Wisconsin League of Financial Institutions, I was interested in the tape you mentioned. I would be appreciative of your sending me a copy. Your presentation was thought provoking!
