"My groups have had 4 ITR speakers over the last 10 years. This last month I needed a speaker on short notice because of a cancellation, and Rachel Bishop recommended a new ITR speaker, Lauren Saidel-Baker. The two presentations she did for my groups were the first two she had done after her pro bono! And she earned almost straight 5's. She is polished, articulate, engaging, and knowledgeable. If it's time for your group to hear about the economy, Lauren is fabulous."
