"Vivian's presentation techniques relating to nonprofits should be an example for teachers. She has a way of presenting material that elicits attention, thought and participation by participants. She has managed to keep our organization together through board development/training sessions, strategic planning sessions, and "pushing us on" in terms of committee functions, marketing and budgeting."

Stuart Nieman, Board President,California Pools of Hope, Inc.
