"Jeff graciously hosted the first quarterly Music Media & Money Gabfest this past February. He kept the audience involved and interested as he spoke. I attribute much of the day's success to Jeff's ability to naturally converse with our speakers in front of a live audience. His perspective on business and life was received well and our attendees took vigorous notes. Jeff is down-to-earth, sociable, and pleasant to be around. Any event would be blessed to have Jeff as its host and/or motivational speaker."
