    I would like to give a testimonial for Jon Ley at the HOBN on Thursday AM. How do I do it?

    • Monika B.

      Hey Bob! Thanks so much for asking! At HOBN we give testimonials as soon as the person that we want to acknowledge has finished his/her introduction at the roundtable. So in your case you could give the testimonial for Jon as soon as Jon has introduced himself to the group. Please keep it brief (max. 30 seconds, roughly).

      See you on Thursday!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
