IMHO, Melissa Tiers in New York City. I have spent hours and hours and hours - maybe WEEKS! on the phone with this woman, and she knows her stuff more than anybody else I know. And she is never static. She is always learning and growing and teaching what she learns immediately after she has learned it. I have never met anybody more dedicated to her craft, and to teaching her craft. She is fun, she is irreverent, she is warm, loving, and generous (can you tell I like her ; - )??? That is why I'm sponsoring her workshop here on the West Coast.
Honestly folks, if you were entertaining the idea of seeing Melissa in action, and learning and whole hell of a lot of useful tools in one short weekend, you have a chance. It'll be a doozy. No, a WHOPPER!
