Your presentation was absolutely fantastic. Your story is offered with so many personal examples of commitment, dedication, focus, perseverance, and of course achievement...you gave all of us a lot to ponder.

"We were looking for a speaker who could combine both inspiration and pragmatics for our graduation and award ceremonies for the Gerontology Interdisciplinary Program at the University of Utah. This event is to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments and honors of our students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. We needed someone who could address the importance of cultivating persistence and dedication toward the achievement of professional goals. Muffy Davis was our keynote speaker and she delivered the message - and the meaning - to our audience with supreme confidence and genuine passion. Ms. Davis is the kind of speaker who connects with people of all ages and of all backgrounds. She brings to the audience a spirited enthusiasm for facing the challenges of life and then offers the rewards for fulfilling the promise to overcome barriers and difficulties. Muffy Davis is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and one who can speak to the creativity that can be found on the journey of life. Our students, family members and friends found her to be perfect match for our ceremony that focused on academic achievement and scholarship. And more importantly, Ms. Davis is a speaker who is looking ahead to the future while learning from the past, but concerned about the present, and that what we do now – is all the difference in the world.”
