Mr. Buffington,
"On behalf of the Commander, Navy Region Northwest, I would like to let you know I was impressed with the superb job you did as the main plenary speaker for the Leadership Conference.  Exploring and presenting state-of-the-art information in leadership training can certainly be a challenge, but is a challenge that you effectively met and demonstrated to the audience that day.  I am very pleased that you were able to augment the main program not only with your message, but also with your style of presentation.”
