Ira was chosen to officiate our wedding after communicating with a number of other professionals that left us a less positive impression. What a fine choice. He arrived on time and delivered a casual yet inspirational ceremony that felt nothing like a dry, rehersed routine. All of our guests were impressed and moved. Thank you so much for helping our wedding day be better than expected!

First phone contact AND subsequent, in-person, one-hour session with Michelle Hannah was outstanding. She is polite, courteous, promptly responsive to your queries, professional, yet friendly, warm, inspiring, and NATURALLY vibrant, positive, and energetic. She is also sincere and authentic - what I truly respect. And she demonstrated her expertise immediately. I was thoroughly impressed. She is excellent at honing in right on my target desires and goals (be these implicit or explicit), and mirrors and articulates well my objectives. She also is very good at obtaining clarity from me on any issues or points that are relevant to my objectives. This indicates to me that she is listening very well, and accurately, and is responsible to not misunderstand or assume/presume what I feel, think, or mean to say. In doing so, I feel that I am clearly heard by her. As such, she recognizes nuances that may either hinder or help me as I proceed forward. Terrific communication skills, and which do not feel forced or mechanical. She's fluid AND precise in how she communicates. In her emphasis on the pragmatic, she quickly, effectively, and clearly breaks down my larger goals into realistic, do-able, non-intimidating chunks. This so that I will have a better chance at experiencing the positive re-inforcement of my having actually completed my step-by-step goals. Instead of feeling bogged down and discouraged, this gets me moving out of 'stuckness' and stagnation. (Getting unstuck is difficult to do on one's own, when it comes to particularly sticky or stubborn issues. Including counter-productive ones that I've been tolerating for too long and to my detriment. So, Ms. Hannah's positive 'shake-up' activates me in the best ways, and in alignment with what is best in me.) In her non-judgmental and compassionate way, Ms. Hannah affected my energy, my outlook, and my confidence immediately and for the better. And she did this without hype or false or artificial means, but in substantive and real ways (and matching what I feel about my true core self). I feel that, with Ms. Hannah, my life situation and desired goals are genuinely validated. Terrific to feel that I have someone in my corner, in a healthy, productive way. Just invaluable. She is also well organized. I was impressed with the introductory worksheets she asked me to fill out, before our first session, and the realistic, do-able homework she gave me to complete before our next session. She understands the importance of positive momentum, as do I. Accordingly, I appreciated her recommendation that I schedule my next session not more than 9-10 days after the first one. I told her ahead of time that that's the kind of accountability I want and need, to keep me on track with my goals at this early stage. In my estimation, Ms. Hannah went above and beyond for my first session. That said, I will not take her generosity of investment for granted. In fact, it's part of what motivates me to meet my goals: valuing her time and my time, and what we put into the work together, as client and coach. As I see it, this is not unlike an athlete who's inspired to do well, not just for herself but in appreciation of her coach's efforts as well. She also works with a partner-coach whose business/finance background will be very helpful to some of my goals as well. But the partner-coach is not involved with my private sessions with Ms. Hannah. Those, I presume, would be separate sessions on an as-needed basis. A great complementary choice for a client to have. The only area of improvement I would suggest, thus far, is that Ms. Hannah provide her office address on her initial intake material, once a client hires her. A simple, practical item of information.

Bill Chott is a consummate professional…but only up to a point. But that’s exactly what you want from a speaker like Bill. You bring him in to liven things up. And liven things up he shall! This won’t be your standard inspirational speaker. You know, like that one guy whose presentation was so “riveting” that you discreetly played Candy Crush during the whole thing. (Although congratulations on beating Level 421. That one was rough, right?) Anyway, what was I talking about? That’s right…Bill Chott. He is a fun, dynamic speaker who will engage and interact with your group in a way unlike any speaker you’ve hired before. Unless, of course, you’ve hired Bill Chott before. But that’s just simple logic really. I shouldn’t need to throw in a caveat like that. I’m also going to use the word “synergy” here. Not because it makes any sense but because there’s a high degree of probability that if you’re reading this then you’re from HR and you love those corporate buzzwords like “synergy”. Here’s another one. Bill is also “proactive”. I don’t really know what would make a speaker “proactive” but again…buzzwords. He’s also “paradigm”. Which I’m pretty sure makes no sense whatsoever. But he is. If you’re tired of the same old speakers telling variations of the same old speeches then Bill Chott is the solution. He’ll entertain, inform, and keep your group interested, intrigued and (most importantly) awake.

I have used Michael's services for my own professional development, for that of my staff and as a consultant at our organization. He is very personable and relatable while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. Michael offered sound insights, identified issues and helped us plan for success without pointing out failings or putting us on the defensive. As a speaker, Michael uses his time appropriately, keeps things moving, plenty of laughs and great information. He comes with my highest recommendation.

I've know and worked (off and on) with Trinette for 15 years! When I first heard her speak to our students at graduation ceremony, I was blown away! She told a story and engaged and connected the audience in a meaningful way. She has only grown and continued to deliver powerful speeches and motivational talks. She has most definitetly been blessed with a wonderful talent!
