    Thanks again for your help. I received a number of emails, some from total strangers (!) raving about how well I did on Diane Rehm and Brian Lehrer. The exercises and tips you gave me really helped me get calm and focused.

    I was initially dreading this workshop! Now that it’s over I’m so happy and grateful for the opportunity. It was not intimidating or nearly as awkward as I thought.

    The commencement address went well. Two standing ovations and several students hugged me as they walked across the stage. Thank you for all your help!

    I can say without reservation that Christine has had a lasting and positive impact on how I and the individuals on my staff present ourselves. The skills she taught us and the additional tips and resources we came across in her book have made us stronger, better and more creative facilitators. She has remained a resource to our organization and we hope to engage with her continually as we expand and grow. She is an absolute professional, a warm and engaging individual, a pleasure to work with and an incredibly talented teacher.

    Christine your sessions were very good and the evaluations were outstanding. I think you had a great balance of instruction and work time and break outs, and most importantly, delivered a great skill to participants. Thank you for being a huge part of a successful conference for us!!

    Christine had done her homework about our unique organization and tailored her training to best impact my colleagues and me. After a day of multiple training sessions, I remember most what I learned from her. Even weeks later, our team is still practicing what Christine taught, which is making us better speakers each day.

    It was because of Christine's help that I nailed the interview process and got my job. I highly recommend her for anyone headed into job interviews.

    Your presentation took the mystery out of thought leadership and gave excellent examples of how to present your ideas. Before your presentation, I believed thought leadership was only for those at the very top of their field. I left the meeting believing I could be a thought leader too, and in some ways, maybe I already am.
