"Polly Meyer is a rare gem, a gift, a force, and a fixer! I have lived with my traumatic brain injury for 18 years but no one took the time to help me sort out my cascading thoughts, rhythm and timing ! If you've met me you know I talk quickly! It is especially hard after a brain injury because if you have lost memory and words before you quickly spit out or "have no filter" as some say because you are plain scared of forgetting!!! After a decade of not sharing my story of living with a traumatic brain injury I am booking gigs !!! Polly works with CEOs, political candidates, and people like me striving for constant improvement! Polly, your positivity radiates. Your presence commands. The lessons you have taught me, I will take with me each day! Each of us who works with you knows what a special and rare gift you are! "
