Client Testimonials

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!

Storylines & Executive Presence, December 2019

Farm Credit Services of America

There was never a moment during the workshop that I wasn’t learning something! I took so many notes and I cannot wait for my next presentation.
Developing & Delivering Compelling Storylines, 2019

The Coca-Cola Company

My favorite training I have received in my career. I think being able to convey my thoughts into impactful presentations where the audience walks away with what I wanted them to is my biggest weakness. After this training I feel confident in putting together presentations for senior leaders, and am excited to bring what I have learned back to my team.

Sally was a skilled and thoughtful workshop facilitator. Her feedback was insightful and helped develop/refine the ideas into a compelling narrative. I really enjoyed the experience and learned a lot from it!

Mastering Executive Presence, June 2019

The video sessions really challenged me. I appreciate the feedback and have already used the funnel structure to organize a presentation I gave this week. So glad I got the opportunity to take the course.

I had an opportunity to do a presentation today, one day after the workshop. I was given feedback that it was my best presentation to date. PROGRESS!

Mastering Executive Presence, March 2019

Bleacher Report

To say I loved your class would be an understatement. I learned so much and made a real connection with my female counterparts. Thank you for being so wonderful and making it look easy to present with style and confidence. 

Mastering Excutive Presence, August 2018

Herc Rentals

Our trainer was amazing, extremely engaging and would recommend her specifically to anyone. She was a pleasure to work with and this was the first training class where you could see everyone engaged.

Out of over 30 years of attending various workshops etc… This was easily in the top 1%

Connecting Stories to Storylines, October 2018

Saddat Abbas, The Home Depot

What I could not improve upon in the last 12 years, Sally helped me get through in 8 months. Now, I feel more encouraged going into conversations. Now, I feel that I could make an impact in a large meeting. I am not in the back seat anymore, but I am ready to lead.

Executive Presence Coaching, 2018-2019

Norwegian Cruise Line

This by far has been one of the best self development classes I’ve taken. The material was clear and the facilitators were excellent. I truly appreciate what I walked away with!
