Virtual Keynote Feedback:  

“Dr. Daren Martin was the keynote speaker for Nicklaus Children’s annual leadership kickoff and we are so grateful to him for delivering a message of hope and healing to our healthcare heroes and leaders through a presentation of The Sink book. Dr. Martin was able to grasp the Nicklaus Children’s culture and our vision for the message we needed to deliver to our leadership team to foster strength, resilience and compassion in a time of great ambiguity.
