Employee Appreciation Brunch

 

With sincere appreciation for making our progress possible, Cornerstone Periodontics thanks our loyal Dental Offices for the support!  In February 2015 Dr. Anderson and staff hosted an Employee Appreciation Brunch at Yolo Restaurant. Our guest speaker ~ Jeannie Skiffington, motivational speaker, author, and trainer who founded Amherst Motivational Services, wrote the book "Winning Is Contagious. Pass It On".  Jeannie has delivered over 1000 power-packed programs with rave reviews from audiences in 45 states over the last 20 years.  She has a background in business and executive management and has lived and mastered her areas of expertise.  Her delivery is direct-hit motivation with step-by-step ideas for positive results every time.  Why struggle more than you have to?  Learning the hard way just got easier.  You can check her website at www.jeannieskiffington.com.  It was a cold but beautiful day for a lunch and learn.
