It was a sincere pleasure to have Ellen Rohr speak at our “Good Afternoon Ozark” Chamber Luncheon, she was truly an engaging and dynamic facilitator! Our 120 guests truly enjoyed her presentation on “No Arguments Management” and “Reward the Right Stuff”- Each attendee in the room walked away with an arsenal of positive measures to use in managing personnel.
Ms. Rohr has an outstanding program and presence, sharing her personal experiences with business successes and failures allowed our audience to relate with her on a very comfortable level . The variety of topics available and the proven concepts are an asset to our organization, whose main mission is to promote local businesses, engage entrepreneurial success, and to create local jobs and consumer interest in all the services and products available at our front door here in Ozark. Ellen Rohr is a true inspiration and an active motivator, we look forward to having her as our guest speaker again this fall.
