What Clients Say

"The experience of working with Michelle is easily one of the top moments in my career. Michelle not only helped me prepare for the presentation, but she also helped me with communication and life skills that I will carry with me for the remainder of my career. If you were to ask me to grade my experience on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest – I would say a 20."

- J.S., Managing Director

"Every hour I spent with her was so worth the time! I engaged Michelle to help me articulate my brand and storytelling, as well as work with me on my delivery, confidence, and executive presence. She was able to zero in on my needs, get to the root cause of where I was having challenges, help to clarify and crystallize my messaging and really help me take my presence to the next level."

- N.P., Partner

"Michelle was a pleasure to work with. She helped me to find my own voice and be able to develop materials that reflected my true character. This made it so much easier to present the material. Then Michelle helped me to bring out the best in my own delivery by finding ways to let my personality shine through. I would highly recommend using Michelle as she helps to enhance who you are as a presenter."

- R.C., Partner

"Michelle was able to help me rediscover a level of confidence I thought I had lost. She armed me with tools, techniques, and new muscles to flex to find balance, concise communication, and a sense of readiness for what’s next. She’s been an instrumental part of my journey, and her guidance, advice and coaching helped me unlock a better me. I know she’d make an impact on our executive ranks in the years to come."
