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 want to thank you for the outstanding session at our 2019 Sales Kick Off Meeting. Your presentation was very well received and created allot of energy and excitement from those in the room. Thanks again and here’s to a great 2019!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
