Don’t take my word for it, here’s what my clients say:
One of the best training experiences I've ever had.

Whenever I get a request for executive coaching, one of the top objectives of the client is invariably to develop ‘Executive Presence’. My response is always, “Great, that’s what I do. What do you mean by executive presence?” And the response is typically along the lines of, “I don’t know what it is, but I…
We’ve all been on a conference call and heard someone apologize for being on mute and ask to have the question repeated. This baffles me.
