Client Testimonials

Randstad

This was fantastic training. Although I have always had confidence when I meet with execs- this training will elevate my conversations It was fantastic to see how different people were from early on until the end of the course.

Mastering Executive Presence, August 2022

Wellstar

Very engaging, loved the interactivity and feeling my skills and confidence build through the exercises. And the 1:1 coaching was a fantastic way to dive deeper into my personal development areas.

Leading Executive Conversations, June 2022

PlayOn! Sports

This was one of the best coaching sessions I have ever had. As someone who is constantly trying to learn and grow, this was, by far, one of the richest experiences. Francie’s comforting and commanding presence is such a huge motivation for continuing to practice these lessons and concepts. Thank you all for the work you put into this.

Strengthening Personal Brand & Impressions, February 2022

Concentrix

Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 sessions – nice build from practical to application. Wanted more! Overall learned a great deal and I’m excited to start applying – thanks very much to the SW&A team!

Leading Executive Conversations Virtual, December 2021

TD Bank LEAD

What an amazing session – special thanks to Sally and her team for such a meaningful presentation. I took so much away and look forward to putting these tools into use to tell my own career journey. As I watched Sally present, I also noticed how impactful her presentation style was, especially in this virtual environment. Thanks again!

Stewarding Your Career, December 2021

TikTok

I wanted to thank every single one of you for doing such an amazing job partnering with us. From the awesome response rate to the book giveaways to Francie slaying in presentation execution, it was a fantastic experience for our employees to go through. There was a lot of love and shoutouts about Francie after the program, as well. We appreciate the beginning of this new partnership and very thankful we were brought together. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

The Communication Blueprint, November 2021

Instructure

Thank you so much for your sessions on Disruption. They were so valuable both from a content standpoint but also from the quality of your delivery. You gave our employees tools, knowledge and experience in such a short window of time that was of great value.

Disrupted! How to Reset Your Brand & Your Career, November 2021

Lucidworks

Thank you Sally and Hurst for coming to our offsite. My team is still talking about how impactful your sessions were and how they will be using what was taught in their future meetings and discussions. Your presence, content, and style were just what this crew needed – and everyone was impressed. I am grateful we were introduced to you!

Leading Executive Conversations, November 2021

Lutron

I think this workshop would be extremely important for anyone who is relatively new to executive communication. I’m very excited for the one-on-one coaching session so I can dive deeper into the topics.

Mastering Executive Presence Virtual, August 2021

Equifax

I’ve attended a large number of executive education sessions, and this was exceptional. Time will tell how valuable this training is, but I expect it to be at or near the top of the list for the most valuable.

Nasco

Francie was a wonderful instructor of the information, concepts and clearly articulated how they could be used to improve communication by applying real-life examples using the tools.

Connecting Stories to Storylines Virtual, March 2021

Procter & Gamble

This is one of the absolute best trainings I have ever taken in my 27-year corporate history. I wish I would have had this when I first started working as it would have simplified my life and likely improved my overall career success.

Help “Tech” Talk “Exec”, February 2021

Cox Automotive

I want to first say that the teaching team was phenomenal. Delivered the key concepts in a meaningful way and the constant interactive approach kept the day moving. They were supportive in their feedback and approachable. I felt the heart-centric nature and the passion from which they approached it and it motivated me to want to get to the level of understanding and execution they believed was attainable! Thank you!

Leading Executive Conversations, 2020

Intuit

I had a tremendously great time in the workshop learning new things and am looking forward to apply what I’ve learned. The detail and lens by which SW&A had us examine things was incredible (and easily digestible!). I wish I had this workshop early on in my career. Many thanks!
