“Mae Lon is such a wealth of knowledge. She recently presented a seminar to a group of business owners I work with and they all were moved to action from what they learned. She enlightened them on how they were wasting their money on the approach they were taking with discretionary bonuses and an annual review and raise process that was flawed. Mae Lon Ding is a true professional that I highly recommend to any business who is looking to make positive changes to their compensation plans.”
Vaughn Sigmon, President
The Alternative Board

“Mae Lon Ding’s humor took a rather dry subject and made it sizzle. Her expertise showed in the way she spoke to the membership as a whole, keeping in mind that there were novices and professionals in the audience. I know all enjoyed the evening. I highly recommend her presentation on any topic in her area of expertise.”
Mona Lyden Moore, Program Chair
The Association of Professional Consultants, Los Angeles Chapter

“The workshop that you taught was one of the best attended and received of any workshop, seminar or class that we have offered. The areas and details that you covered were a perfect mirror of our clients’ challenges and needs and the material that you presented was concise, clear and easy to understand for all of our attendees, who ranged from Company Presidents, CEO’s CFO’s COO’s and Directors of Business Development, all with minimal backgrounds in compensation issues.

Our clients and attendees had nothing but compliments of your knowledge of the subject, your ability to field questions from novices to the experts, your ability to present your responses so everyone could easily grasp the technicalities and the implications of your answers, and your ability as a speaker to engage everyone in a challenging and complex subject.

Thank you again for the wonderful experience that you provided for our clients and us, and we would have you back or recommend you anytime for any class or any speaking engagement.”
