... You were in your zone last night. The way you communicated, information you shared and your confident style was very helpful to our community and those who want to understand us better. Your understanding of the whole (transgender) person's needs was effectively presented. It's a real skill to get to the core in short period of time. The questions that followed were evidence of the success of the whole program last night. Thanks for your participation.

Seth’s presentation style is dynamic and engaging. His honesty and candidness was very much appreciated. Seth provided our staff with a greater understanding of the terminology in the trans community and provided clarification on several other issues. Seth’s knowledge, understanding, and experiences were evident as he spoke to our staff. Without reservation, I would recommend having Seth speak to your organization."

"His information was invaluable. He made everyone feel at ease, which is sometimes difficult when discussing this topic. I was extremely impressed with the wealth of knowledge and resources shared with us. It is the first time that the PE Dept. asked questions and seemed interested. Sometimes it is difficult for some teachers to understand the transgender student. Thank you Seth so much for helping our district learn what is important when transgender students need our help."
