“You were the overall highest rated speaker for the IBM “Pathways to Growth” Conference (for 2,700 corporate CEO’s and Presidents). The program included twelve different distinguished speakers. Dr. Maas is a fabulous speaker. He knows his stuff and articulates it well! It literally woke up a lot of CEO’s! You were the highest rated (5 out of 5) on content, virtually tied for the best delivery (4.64), and you were second (4.82) on subject importance”

"When in competition or heavy training, sleep is the most important factor in achieving my optimal athletic performance. I need at least 8 hours of sleep a night for me to feel fully recovered and energized to play my absolute best. If I don't meet my sleep requirement, my legs feel heavy, my reaction time is slower and my ability to think and act quickly is negatively affected."
