"Betsy has written an encouraging personal story about her journey alongside her husband Pete, as his vibrant health and active life fell victim to the fatal disease of Lewy Body Dementia. As a personal involvement, I was thrilled that she wrote this book, sharing her experience and wisdom with all of us. As a caregiver she kept Pete focused on living as fully as possible and fueled by the love between them-which was always evident."

"Hundreds of publications espous- ing the benefits of employee engagement, communication and connection appear each year. Rarely does one provide the context, research, and strategies for implementation. Connect & Succeed does this – and then some! Bennett never fails to understand that the purpose of increased communication and engagement are success and profitability; yet he also understands that the benefits go even deeper, and shows you how to get there.”
