“Betty is an exceptional motivational speaker who uplifts and encourages her audience. She provides helpful tools that allow participants to develop and establish goals for their future. In addition to being a dynamic speaker, she’s professional, organized and a pleasure to work with.”

“I met Betty while recruiting a speaker for the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatcher Conference. I knew within a few minutes into our conversation that Betty would be a great fit for this professional development session. She tailored the ‘Liftoff Leadership’ message to fit perfectly with the schedulers and dispatchers audience. She is poised, professional, and so easy to work with. Her enthusiasm and know-how engage the crowd and provoke thoughts about their specific situation(s). I recommend Betty as a speaker from personal experience and feel that she is a true motivator and catalyst for positive change.”

– Rich Ropp Director of Sales , Jet Aviation, Inc.
