“Mr. Burleson certainly delivered a memorable presentation. He offered our team some unique leadership lessons and reinforced them with an endless number of humorous stories from his days as an SEC football official. What is amazing is the way he completely held the audience in his hand—even those who don’t proclaim to be football fans. He is a masterful storyteller…his perfect timing and ability to describe the scene in color detail brought his stories to life. He held the attention of the audience for the full hour, and definitely left them wanting more. In my opinion, that speaks volumes regarding his impact on our people. Please know that we are very satisfied customers.”
