“Sitting 1-on-1 with Cindy … she’s like instant brilliance. I wish we had her for a 3rd day. 10 out of 10.”
Cindy’s scientific communications training so exceeded my expectations! We brought her in for what was a superb 2-day Masterclass to work with our Emerging Technologies team – 80 in total. We learned so much about how to craft and deliver our messages succinctly and with executive presence. I cannot recommend Cindy and her team strongly enough–they worked with us to shape the training to meet our requests and needs. Working with them was a FABULOUS experience!
“Cindy did an excellent job crafting a tailored training session for our team. She struck a great balance of lecture, discussion, and audience engagement while covering a wide range of communication topics and challenges.”
“As a professional speaker, I know the value of getting feedback before giving an important speech. As I prepared my TEDx talk, Cindy was the perfect person to give me outside perspective. She did a beautiful job taking the many ideas I had floating around in my head and helping me select what to use, how to organize them, and how to tie it all together. I love the way she coached, not trying to make her words my own, but instead, considering what I was trying to achieve and helping me stay true to my voice. If you have to stand and deliver a great talk, working with Cindy can help you ensure you’re at your best!”
