THANK YOU GABE!
Thanks to Gabe Howard for making our 2014 Annual Meeting a whopping success. Comments ran from "I can use every bit of what I learned tonight in my work, in dealing with our clients and in my everyday life." "I wish Gabe could have spoken longer!" "What a great entertaining and enlightening speaker." We have lots more wonderful comments, but you get the idea. Gabe engaged with the crowd, stayed long after to answer questions and was just so hospitable. We highly recommend him.

Gabe is a dynamic speaker who uses humor, audience interaction, and common sense to engage the people around him. He is charismatic and unforgettable. He currently makes his home in Columbus, Ohio, with his caring and understanding wife, Kendall.
