Executive and Entrepreneurial Women speak about Jeff Davidson’s programs on Breathing Space®: Living and Working at a Comfortable Pace in a Sped-Up Society
Taking your course “Managing Priorities” with the American Society ofInterior Designers in Sedona, Arizona has changed my life for the better inseveral ways. Your presentation was entertaining and lively. Your messagehad meaning and put into words what I was experiencing in my day. Theinteractive participation with the group, great stories, and examples alsohelped to inspire me. As a result, I now “manage the beforehand” and chooseto cast away what impairs my progress toward my goals. Thank you so much!

I sincerely enjoyed your speech and thought about things you said longafter your presentation. Your style, too, was veryattention-maintaining. I am the Sales Communications Manager for Burroughs Wellcome. Manythings you said I draw on in managing this job and sorting out the keyinformation from the unnecessary-to-live information. I recommendedthat my boss explore your availability for one of our sales meetings.It would be a delight if we would sponsor someone practical rather thanthe excellence/vision stuff we often drone on about. I would definitelylike to hear your presentation (and/or a longer version) again. Not only did I find the content of your talk useful, I thoroughlyenjoyed your delivery style.

Thanks so much for speaking at the WNBA meeting. As a speaker myself, Iappreciated your energy, your information, and your approach, and I’veheard many good comments from others in attendance. Nearly a third of the audience members were guests, not members; I’msure they were there because of you. I hope we’ll be able to enticethem to join. Personally, I found lots of validation in what you said.
Diane Ullius, President, Women’s National Book Association, Washington,DC
I had the pleasure of attending your seminar on the Royal Majesty Cruiseduring the NAWBO conference. This year, I had set a goal to become moreorganized and to maintain a clean desk. You confirmed all the reasonswhy this should be done. Your seminar was a great help to me. Now, I “toss” a lot more than Idid in the past. My desk is now clean each night, and I finally hiredan assistant who helps me utilize your suggestions.
Margie Wilcox, Owner, Mobile Bay Transportation Company, Mobile, AL

I so enjoyed your talk at the IBAA convention. I can’t wait to shareyour information with my husband and children. Your approach to aclutter-free, organized life is much more humorous and interesting thanwhat they’re used to hearing. I’d also love a couple extra handouts yougave to everyone. I hope to see you at Okaboji (our annual state meeting).

Wow! Your energy and information were top notch. I learned a new wayof viewing the world and my participation in it. You gave me what Iwanted, namely new and practical advice. After leaving yourpresentation I shared your view points with colleagues. How we managethe information age with industrial age tools was a real eye opener. Idon’t think I’ll ever open my mail, read a magazine or spend my time inquite the same way as I used to. Thank you for sharing you insights in an enjoyable way at our meetingthis past Saturday. I look forward to seeing you again.
