Very informative and captivating. A message that makes you think heavily about our own safety culture, and a message we can take back to our employees. Very, very well done.
Mercedes was spectacular. One of the best commencement addresses I’ve heard in 30 years. I wish I’d kept track of all the glowing comments made about her speech.
Mercedes’ very personal presentation captivated, inspired and uplifted our audience. This impassioned young woman’s story of determination and leadership in the face of adversity has many beneficial lessons.
I want to thank you for coming into my life with your story. You showed me that no matter how desperate things may seem, no matter how low our spirits may get, we are in control of the outcome. I was so touched by your story and how strong you are. People have always told me that special people were put on this earth to inspire others to do better in their lives. After meeting you, I see that it is true.
Words cannot describe how much your speech touched my heart. I have seen many inspirational speakers in my lifetime, but I have never been as moved as I was last night. It would be fair to say that Zig Ziglar and Tony Robbins have some competition. This world needs more people like you.
