"Professor George spoke to our national women’s college community of graduates in Feb 2022 via Zoom. She was a joy and easy to collaborate with for the virtual event. Everyone LOVED her presentation and found her discussion on “The Science Behind Happiness for Women” extremely relevant and helpful! Afterwards, a member contacted me to inform me they were sharing the recording of her presentation with other alums. I hope to have Professor George back to speak to the women’s college community again soon!" - Stefanie, Women's Colleges Advocate, Corporate Communications, KPMG

"We had the pleasure Dr George speaking to our entire faculty on a topic that is very important, The Science of Happiness. Her presentation was incredibly well received by our faculty with real-world, actionable advice. Her ability to take detailed, scientific research and explain how to apply it to our lives kept the group engaged and intrigued. We will most definitely be having Dr George back to speak to our students/faculty and recommend her to anyone wanting to help their staff find their happiness!" - Kyle, Business Manager, Las Vegas Day School

"I asked Dr George to address both our faculty and parent body on the subject of happiness. Her presentations were the most well-received professional development events that I have hosted.
Both groups found her engaging and her knowledge of the topic area was impressive. Now, more than ever, we need to be talking about taking care of our students, our faculty and ourselves and her message reinforced that. We are hoping to have her back to speak to our students in the future. If you have the opportunity to have Dr. George speak to your organization, do it!" - Joseph, Chief Innovation Officer, The Meadows School
