“You definitely connected with the members of Aurora Business Women and the guests who attended. You most certainly described networking in a different light. Personally, I will always remember your thoughtful words about being a “giver” and of words of encouragement when I meet someone new at a “networking” event.”

Mary Ellen Lewis, Aurora Business Women


“Wow, what a dynamic and effective listening workshop you presented to my department! We really enjoyed the session and gained a deeper understanding of the various components involved in effective listening. You have a natural quality that made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease right from the start, and you quickly created an atmosphere that invited feedback and participation. The exercises were relevant and useful. The session was quite thought-provoking for all of us well after the program.”
