"I attended a York Chamber event and Kim was the speaker. She was very knowledgable and I enjoyed listening to her speech. I look forward to
her speaking events in the future."
Kim's presentation inspired me to invite her to speak for our organization, Senior Commons at Powder Mill in York, PA. We think Kim's presentation will inspire the women
in our community to understand the importance of empowerment and learn how to empower themselves by utilizing her FEM Method.

"We read your Customer Service article in the most recent issue we received from Coastal Bank of Georgia, St Simons Island, GA.
We try to live this philosophy each day in our business. It was ironic that I was having a problem with an issue at the bank which could
have been resolved before it started if only those in charge had followed your plan."
"How to Keep Your Job" Article Review - August 6, 2009
"Although there may not be any such thing as a job which is 100% secure it is likely these ten tips will help you if your company decides to cut heads.
Kim Goff does an admirable job in this article but I am not 100% sure I agree with Tip #10 which says: Speak up. If you see something that can be improved,
or if there's a task that could make use of your expertise, share it! When you give a voice to your ideas, opinions and thoughts about how to improve the
overall performance of your organization, managers and co-workers will take notice."

Hello Kim! "I just finished reading your article on customer service. I agree this is one of the most overlooked areas in business that has the most
impact one way or the other. Mastering the fundamentals of business right from the most basic BUT the most important facet of any business is how we
answer phones and greet our clients."
