Reviews from a Financial Planning Firm

Thank you so much for your expertise in leading the two group sessions and for the time you spent with us individually as well.  The sessions provided insight into our differing work styles. With your professional presence, we were able to talk openly regarding work challenges and also have the opportunity to role play to more effectively communicate or handle an upcoming project or situation.

It was very nice meeting you; again thank you for your time spent with us.
