Alison King“Janet Barclay spoke to our group of Professional Organizers in Canada (Halton-Peel Chapter) about Facebook. She was a very animated speaker and comfortable with her topic. Janet used language that our group could understand and was able to answer our questions about Facebook as a business networking tool. It was a pleasure having her speak to our group and we will definitely consider for future speaking engagements.”
