"I participated in your workshop, 'The Heart of Communication.' It was one of the many offered at Toyota Motor Manufacturing's In the Interest of Women Conference. A friend had told me that if I ever had the opportunity to participate in any of Mary Claire's workshops to jump on it. Now I know why, and I'm glad I did! I look forward to participating in other workshops and sessions that Mary Claire conducts!"
