“I had the great fortune to hire Annabel Chotzen to provide a
keynote presentation to the Geoprofessional Business
Association’s conference in Hawai’i. Even better, I was able to
attend the presentation and learn about the rich history and
culture of the Hawaiian people.
Her presentation was informative and inspiring and her passion
for Hawaii poured out to all in attendance. Annabel challenged
us to focus our lives and grow personally and professionally by
weaving a compelling story and prompting action through her gift
of Kukui nuts.
I highly recommend Annabel Chotzen to anyone who is planning a
conference or a meeting in Hawaii and I recommend her to anyone
that wants to add the Aloha Spirit to their conference beyond
