Client Testimonials

My time working with Chris has been invaluable. Chris' attention to both providing and cultivating emotional intelligence is essential for those who are looking to be better direct or influence their organizations. The time I have spent with Chris has inspired me to look inward so as to more effectively be a leader of leaders. Ultimately our time together has resulted in my feeling better prepared to meet the ever evolving demands of leadership in a world that is in a continuous state of change.

C-Level exec Mental Health Industry

I had the pleasure of working with Chris on designing a critical one hour webinar presentation and full day workshop essential to my business. Having Chris’ invaluable input, feedback and ideas helped me not only refine my message and offering, but gave me renewed confidence in the material and content. Her easy to work with personality, vivaciousness and creativity all added to the experience. Hiring Chris to help me develop my content was one of the best investments I’ve made in my business. 3 Thumbs up!!

The workshop Chris coached me on was a great success; based on direct feedback from my audience. And best of all, after working with Chris, I evolved to an even greater level of confidence in my ability to present my message effectively.

Executive Leadership Consultant

On behalf of the nearly 160 members attending Saturday’s Zoom Fall Leadership Conference, I want to thank Chris for being an outstanding Breakout Session Speaker. “Demystifying Executive Presence” was extremely relevant, thoughtful in its detail and delivered in a most compelling way. Chris’ friendly, insightful answers to all of the questions from the engaged participants was “must see/listen” material. Bravo!
