  • 9th Annual Symposium On Inclusive Education And Employment
    I appreciated the ongoing contact/check-ins, and the itineraries for Randy's travel. Iwill also forward any feedback to Randy and yourself as we review the results of the Symposium. If possible, I would appreciate any feedback from Randy, Lisabeth and Amanda that would enlighten us in terms of our requests/responses, and the experience of Randy as a keynote/workshop resource at Symposium 2016, as well as anything you have learned/adopted in dealing with an event involving a diversity of persons with disabilities.. Thank You.

  • Sharing the Commitment Conference for Parents of Students with Disabilities
    Everything was very positive All of the comments from parents about Randy were very positive- some marking him the best part of their overall day. He was very gracious in answering many private questions of participants.

  • Moving Forward Conference
    Working with both Jasmine and Debbie was a pleasure. They fulfilled all my needs, answered questions in a timely manner and proved to be good partners with American Water to ensure that our experience with Randy Lewis was a good one. And it's nice to put the faces with the names.
