“I attended Elaine’s presentation on how to create a powerful powerpoint presentation and learned more in an hour than I had learned in the last several years through my own efforts. Not only that, she is very generous with her time — you can tell she really cares that you understand and receive value. I recommend her to anyone wishing to skip the do-it-yourself, trial and error phase and get it done!”

“For people starting their own businesses, marketing is vital to success, yet is often one of the trickiest parts… Your presentation clearly defined branding’s role in marketing and provided a much deeper understanding of the concept for attendees. Furthermore, you gave both examples and tools that attendees could learn from and begin to implement that same day. Throughout the hour, participants were taking notes furiously, trying to capture every nugget you offered. I got lots of positive feedback on both the material and your enthusiastic teaching style.”

Thank you again for tailoring your remarks to where we are and not to where we should be. As a consequence, you have given us a sound pathway to get us where we should be. Everyone appreciated not only ‘the goods’ but your style, candor and personality as well. You were terrific.”
