Reactions from sponsors of recent presentations:

I have hosted and planned hundreds of creative, fun, compelling, events in my senior living career. Getting people to come to events at an Assisted Living community in a city with exponential choices is no small feat.  The best turnout and response we have ever received was in conjunction with hosting Dr. Karl Pillemer. Not only did he draw professionals but he also brought in seniors,  students and senior students.  It is also the only time that I have ever received a call asking me to re-invite a speaker!”

– Julie Bolt, Marketing Director, Boylston Place, Epoch Senior Living

“Dr. Pillemer was the keynote speaker for our recent Hospice Hearts Luncheon. His presentation was well-received by our 400+ guests and left everyone wishing he had more time to speak!”– Diane M. Allvin Beach, Annual Giving Specialist, Providence Hospice & Home Care Foundation, Everett, Washington

“The wisdom that Dr. Pillemer has gathered from our seniors is amazing.  Thank you, Dr. Pillemer, for your inspiring presentation at our community.    My residents especially enjoyed the 1:1 chats with Dr. Pillemer after the presentation.   They were all made to feel special by Dr. Pillemer. ”– Linda Pekarsky, Executive Director, Villas of Summerfield, Brookdale Senior Living
