"We highly recommend Mary Kay Slowikowski as a group speaker. Mary Kay is so personable and relatable yet she shares her stories and lessons in such an open and natural way, you feel like you've been friends with her your whole life, or wish you had been! She is honest, caring, and hilarious. Mary Kay really knows how to read her audience and share applicable stories and anecdotes. I can't say enough good things about our experience with her.
