Shirley, your keynote ‘Rock Your Role – How to Make a Difference at Work’ was well received with positive feedback. You were of high energy and engaging as always. The connecting the dots segment made everyone self-reflect, and the video was inspiring. Of course, the best part was your customised EZ-Link rap. Thanks very much again for the excellent session. We look forward to our continual partnership with you in the future.
