“Just reaching out to send you mid-night spring greetings from Athens and a very warm thank you for your amazing professionalism, enthusiasm and inspiration. After the [Delphi Economic Forum] session this afternoon, all of us keep on receiving thank you messages for your insights and the points raised during our session. It was a great discussion.  Delphi Forum also called to congratulate us!  Somebody told me that he felt embarrassed not knowing you before the [panel].  I also take the opportunity to express my warm feelings for virtually meeting you. I hope we stay in touch and we exchange regularly. Looking forward to seeing you soon and welcoming you in Athens.”

“I have to tell you, after your TEDx talk I’ve been inspired to spend more time unplugged from technology [with my kids]. I’ve been protecting the hour before we leave for school and then two hours before bed and making them screen-free time. This change has been amazing! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

“Veronica gave a fantastic presentation to the Grant Writers Roundtable on Partnering with LGBTQ+ Communities. She provided an excellent introduction to the LGBTQ+ community and their passions and concerns. She is a high energy speaker, interactive, and provides actionable insights. I have been organizing the roundtables for 10 years and  Veronica has been one of the best.”

“It was a real pleasure to have Veronica Kirin as one of our panelists at the closing session of this year’s Art & Science of Aging Conference. The audience participants found her stories intriguing and followed up with questions about some of them. Since being on a panel limited her time to tell stories, we only got a flavor of what Veronica can relate…and will really enjoy reading her new book where she tells many more of the stories of the older generation’s experiences with technology.”
