"Before working with Jody, my boss's boss barely knew my name. Since Jody helped me to come from my audiences' perspectives when speaking, this has had a huge impact on my career. I now present nine times more often, to bigger groups in and outside of Sprint, and have been entrusted with higher level projects as well as more leadership opportunities."

- Monika Panpaliya, Manager, Sprint


"Everyone found Jody's presentation to be useful and enjoyable. We appreciated the time she put into learning about our organization and membership so her information was truly tailored to our group. This made it even more relevant for our members. We have suggested her as a speaker to many other groups as well!"

- Nicole Riegel, former Program Chair, ABWA (American Business Women's Association)
