Speaker testimonials

Thank you for closing the OLA Super Conference in style February 2! 1,000 delegates left the Metro Toronto Convention Centre with smiles on their faces and tunes running through their minds. Your talk was such an intriguing blend of personal stories about school, the library, and the music business. We thoroughly enjoyed the mix of talk and music – you have a phenomenal voice!

Things went very well at the Reading Summit. Steven was fantastic. He and Annie had a great discussion. I loved “What a Good Boy”. I think the song really set a great tone for the conference. And then there were lots of good questions. It was great. Highlight of my time there.
