Ive had the fortune to work with Joy on a couple of different speaking opportunities - most recently the 2012 ConvergeSouth Conference - and she is a consummate professional. Joy is one of the most knowledgeable presenters that Ive worked with. She presents her topics in a manner so that the audience is engaged and can absorb the material that is being presented to them. I would recommend Joy to any company or conference that wants an informed and energetic speaker.

"I called several companies and got promises for information on speakers. GBS was the first company who delivered without a return phone call. I was impressed by the level of professionalism and the willingness they offered to help us in selecting a speaker who could fit our corporate needs. Turnaround time for answers and documents was never more than 24 hours."
