Manny Gonzalez, despite the fact that he has never been exposed to a prison setting, did a great job addressing and motivating a group of educators and other support staff at a correctional institute. He addressed topics like how to motivate one's self, overcome obstacles and deliver services that are not only part of our job, but to go beyond that-to give of our self for the betterment of others. I spoke with some of my colleagues about Manny, and everyone enjoyed him and his presentation. Words like "excellent" and "great" were used when I asked them to describe Manny. I would whole-heartedly recommend him to speak at any function for any group of people.
