Rave Reviews About Nancy Snyderman
“Nancy Snyderman…is under priced for the value she brought yesterday. The spouses replied ‘she was the best speaker we ever had,’ ‘it was like she knew us’ and ‘Ms. Snyderman is the most genuinely sincere person on the planet.’ If I booked her now to give the spouse speech every year for the next ten years, they’d love it.”
