Rave Reviews About David Feherty
David Feherty was a super hit for Lincoln International. He was charming, spoke for a fascinating hour and 10 minutes, and then noticed his books – asked ‘Are they signed?’ He insisted on signing anyone’s books who wanted a signature, even personalizing most, and had no intention of rushing off. He was a hero! I’m so glad that this date turned out to be a smash hit on every level!
