“I owe Wendy a big debt of gratitude. I speak to large crowds quite regularly, and I used to race through my speeches. Now I am comfortable pausing and slowing things down – it improves my focus, while giving the audience time to digest my messages. I recommend Wendy to anyone who wants to get better at engaging audiences. She’s terrific – an expert and fun to work with; she helped me a lot!”

“Wendy’s focus, combined with a disarming and personable approach, makes it easy to learn and get better. She has helped me analyze my audiences to truly understand what will resonate and persuade. Rehearsing with Wendy has also helped me to connect more with my audiences, and achieve results. I have recommended Wendy on a number of occasions – and will continue to – for improving formal presentations and boosting boardroom presence.”

“Working with Wendy reminded me of the importance and value of continually refining and updating our skills, even at the executive level. She both firmly and professionally moved me out of my comfort zone to attain the results I was after.
Wendy helped me prepare for a critical and strategic board presentation; it went well, which had considerable impact on how I have been able to lead a project for offices in Canada, US and Latin America. It felt like I was working with the “Wolf”* of presentation skills.”

“I engaged Wendy to help me prepare for a big client event in May of 2016. Wendy and I worked intensively through three separate 2-hour sessions to (1) hone my presentation skills and (2) craft a compelling presentation for our event. Initially, I found the prospect of watching myself on video daunting but Wendy quickly put me at ease. Her feedback was sequenced in such a way that each session built on the previous one. The culmination of our hard work was an engaging speech in front of 250+ people which received lots of positive reviews. I’m thankful for all of Wendy’s assistance in preparing me for that event and look forward to working with her again. ”
Director, Corporate Knowledge, Sorbara Group of Companies
“I have been fortunate enough to work with Wendy and have achieved noticeable success with her guidance. She has helped me unlock a new level of confidence and awareness with my speaking and presentation skills.
I’ve known Wendy for years and she consistently brings the same things to the table: intelligence, integrity, energy and a true desire and ability to help me achieve my goals.
Wendy has a unique ability to listen intently and offer meaningful adjustments and suggestions. The calm, confident and safe environment she establishes with her clients allows them to open up, practice and fine-tune their approach.
Even when the ideas or concepts are vague or cloudy, Wendy is able to decipher the meaning and effectively articulate a direction. I have achieved sustainable change through our work together. ”
