I was in the audience at our last Chamber of Commerce meeting when you gave your presentation on team building to the Chamber Members. In short, it was excellent.

I really like what you said about being a leader - one who ensures that every team member counts. I am using this one idea in my relationship with our staff as it is for me central to the notion of developing the skills and attitudes of the team.

Many thanks for the content of your presentation and your effortless, and smooth delivery of it. I was impressed!'

"Thank you for your presentation regarding the importance of teamwork on Friday. After mentioning examples of how teamwork differentiates the Mayo Clinic from other medical facilities it was crystal clear to me that our most valuable resource is our team. A light went on in my head during your presentation because of the examples you used and the way you broke teamwork down. You made things clear."

"Joanne was personable, interesting and very well prepared. Everyone in the audience was hanging on her every word as she delivered “Seven Tips to Fearless Speaking.” A question & answer period afterward proved to be a great learning tool for our group. The tips she gave also helped us to understand how to align our butterflies when approaching public speaking and take it to the next level. '
