inspirational-motivational-speaker-colette-carlson-nasn-school-nurses-testimonial-presentation“Your presentation exceeded our expectations as a keynote speaker. The attendees and NASN staff are impressed that you tailored your presentation to school nurses, including your school nursing visuals — the slide of IEP blocks and the props used in the busy nurse skit on stage. Conference participants including school nurses in the health office and school nurse administrators commented to me that you truly understood them and the challenges they face. Your presentation was a fitting conclusion to our conference as you empowered the audience and provided them with insight on how to take action when they return home.”

Sarah Butler, MS, RN, CDE, NCSN, Director of Diabetes and Nursing Education, National Association of School Nurses


“YOU SCORED A PERFECT 4.0 in every category! This is the first time in my 15 years of planning the conference that this has happened! Clearly, saying our audience loved you is an understatement. I only wish we had more women in this industry for your message to impact. We’re working on that… Thank you for being such a joy to work with.”

Sandra C. Williams, Director of Dealer Training and Development, S.P. Richards Company
