”Most memorable speaker I’ve heard in a long time. Very satisfied.” – Leticia Magdaleno, Esq. 

“Faith is the best executive coach on the planet…I have worked with her before and she is unbelievably talented. I cannot begin to tell you how much she helped me…I plan to use Faith for more coaching for my senior staff and me. She does terrific group presentations as well as one on one. I used her when I was the Executive Director for the American Diabetes Association and the staff there, to this day, tell me it was the best coaching/learning experience they have ever had.”

– Jane Warner, President & CEO, American Lung Association in CA

“Just finished transcribing your wonderful presentation notes I took in Florida…I am going to be so much more prepared for my speech in Texas in early June. Thanks again. I know, for a fact, I will give a presentation that will be 100 times better than what I would have given.” – Joe Ankus, Ankus Consulting

“Outstanding speaker and instructor. The coaching was very helpful too.” – Lisa Braganca, Access Living

“In the workshop, you quickly helped our attorneys break old habits and transform their presentations, while boosting their confidence in their public speaking skills.” – Anthony Grumbach, Director of Professional Development, Farella Braun + Martel

“The program exceeded my expectations. The variety of learning experiences – small group coaching and one-on-one coaching was very helpful. I know I have improved as a result of the program. It also took a lot of the anxiety out of the preparation by giving me concrete tools, strategies and tips to use.” – Erica A. Rogina, Esq.

“Faith has given me the skills and tailored training I needed to deliver an effective appellate oral argument. She broke the preparation process down into steps which ensure that I am prepared to persuasively advocate on behalf of my client. She is a smart, challenging, and demanding coach. I will benefit from my investment in her for the rest of my career.” – Rebecca Kane, Esq., Assistant Attorney General, Arkansas

“I just gave my first presentation using the principles you taught and it made a BIG difference! Now, I didn’t do EVERYTHING you taught… but I did restructure that presentation into 3 concepts… made lots of eye contact and used great summary intros and conclusions… it went very well. Thanks again for your seminar!” – Caroline Galanty, Asst. General Counsel, Bank of America Legal Dept.

“Very well done and helpful for all day to day business communication.” –  Stan Lazar, Esq.

“I very much enjoyed the one-on-one coaching and the small group format. The critical comments were extremely helpful. The stop/start technique was especially helpful to me. The two-day program was appropriate.” – Dan Anders, Esq.

“Helpful feedback on my public speaking skills – non threatening environment.” – Evelyn Hoffman, Esq.

”Great job- kept my attention the entire time (which is hard to do!) and I feel like I really learned something. Thank you!”
