“Articulate, engaging, motivational, compelling, believable speaker – that characterizes the impactful Hope Leigh Sullivan. Ms. Sullivan made an often times routine retreat come alive with her energetic thought provoking speech on the value of perseverance in the face of dwindling budgets and shifts in political winds.

Over the last 25 years I have on numerous occasions experienced Hope Sullivan\\\\\\\'s public addresses in various settings. If I had to use one word to describe her talks it would be \\\\\\\"authentic.\\\\\\\" She connects very well with her audiences whether they are heads of state or people who vote for them. She has an amazing presence, appearing at ease on the podium and leaving listeners impressed with her content and confidence. Yet while commanding on stage she is not preachy. To express complex ideas clearly she converts words into images and by varying her timing and tone she opens her mind for listeners to see. She can be moving, humorous entertaining on most subjects she discusses. H. Art Taylor, President & Chief Executive Officer BBB Wise Giving Alliance
