Excellente !!! Succinct, truthful and powerful. Can’t do better than that. I loved all the budget comments. You think creatively about staying within budget, and I found your stories and advice to be very sage, indeed. LOVED how you turned napkin rings into Native American flame dancers.
“Could You Do Just One More Thing” was a BIG hit and the topic resonated with planners and suppliers alike. The truth is our clients, volunteers, internal and external stakeholders can have some outrageous requests from time to time. Lynne took the time to break down how to handle these situations through personal stories and case analysis. Lynne is truly passionate about the meeting and events industry which she exudes during her presentation. She’s upbeat, interactive and engaging!
Lynne’s energy with our chapter was infectious. Her thought-provoking content was relevant and resonated with our group!
Thank you so much again for all of your hard work and preparation for this webinar. People were very engaged and you gave them so many useful tips for their upcoming events. Zibby was in the education inbox yesterday and said a ton of people asked for a copy of your slides for their reference.
I think people really respond to the way you present because it is relatable and you are not afraid to admit the mistakes you have made in the past. For example, not charging clients for extra work. I love the way you gave an example of a friend who did charge, explained why she should, and validated the fact that you may not have charged when you first started, but now know that it is something that should be done. That YOU (and your listeners) are worth it, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t be paid for all the work you do.
I absolutely enjoyed the presentation yesterday. Great Job! I was educated and entertained. You did a marvelous job moving through the audience and engaging us. Thank You!
I could tell that Lynne was very educated on our industry and how events truly work. She had great enthusiasm during our program and I would recommend her to others. It was a fun and educational meeting and gave me, as a supplier, a better view into the world that our planners deal with during their events.
Super engaging and so knows the industry. Lynne was high energy and kept her presentation upbeat and educational. I would highly recommend her for future events.
I was invited to local association meeting here in Phoenix, AZ and Lynne Wellish was the guest speaker. I was definitely impressed with her topic and presentation; she spoke to the room as if she was speaking to a group of friends. She was so engaging with the audience and the time passed so quickly, it left you wanting to hear more!
Thank you so much for speaking at MPI Minnesota yesterday! I left motivated to focus on the 6 A’s of the event experience. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for the awesome job you did at MPI-GLES! You were terrific!
I attended the MPI NENY event today in Saratoga. Thank you so much for providing such an engaging and educational presentation! I look forward to putting to use some of the tips you provided.
Your presentation I love my client, but they have this annoying habit was a powerful hit! Everyone really enjoyed the presentation and we all learned something new about ourselves, decision making and communication solutions. These are all areas that we all need to think about more often and use our time effectively, plus keep our business partners happy.
SGMPAZ appreciates your time and knowledge shared at today’s meeting. This is a topic was timely for all of our members and the 30th Anniversary celebration. I will definitely work on my communication skills and follow-up. Thanks for the insight, inspiration and motivation to be a better planner.
….. Thanks for your continued support of SGMPAZ and we would love to have you back next year!

“You definitely had a topic that resonated with our members, along with a stellar sense of humor!”
“Thank you very much for the entertaining and educational talk the other night at the NACE event. You were a wonderful and engaging speaker. “
It was great seeing you too! I learned so much from your session. I really don’t do ANY cold calling or outreach. We rely on word of mouth. We put all of our advertising dollars into our events (adding champagne or some other treat), in hopes that the added value will wow guests into asking for a Forums card. Your class taught me to OUTREACH and not to rest on the business that comes my way – we can do better!
…your presentation was right on target and thank you so much for being there. I rated this conference on top with education, fun and food. Thanks for sending the site inspection checklist. It is really complete.
t was great to meet you too and thank you for speaking at our event last week. It’s so hard to keep folks engaged these days so that fact that you can do that with such ease is amazing.
I look forward to working together again soon.
