“I just wanted to let you know I gave the best talk EVER yesterday thanks to you! One of my written comments was from one of the delegates at the conference: ‘Your presentation was simply the best in the 2 days. It was both personal and uplifting. I am now most inspired.’ The audience was all high level executives. They were so attentive during my speech. I could see they were listening and actually stayed off of their electronic devices, which wasn’t the case throughout the other presentations. I was worried since I was the second to last presentation of the day. The organizer was thrilled! It was such a great high for me. I did everything you taught me. Thank you Mimi, you are the BEST!!!”

“Because of your coaching, my speech was an absolute home run. I can’t thank you enough. The laughs and humor came where you said they would. The 90 minutes flowed better than I expected. The feedback was great. I touched people on a lot of levels I had hoped for. Thank you for guiding me to wrap my content in the leadership theme. I can’t say enough about your contribution. You gave me a great deal of direction and pointed me to the right content. Everything you suggested that I do, worked. You gave me a great deal of confidence. I give you a lot of credit and appreciate everything you did.”

“I had so much fun delivering our speech this afternoon. I’ve never had more fun or been more proud of speaking about my business. One person came up to me after and asked me to re-quote something I said because it really resonated with her. Now that’s a sign of a well-written and executed speech. You are the best. And the audience laughed when you said they would!”

“Your presentation formula is AMAZING and simple. Love the speech formula worksheet too. The introduction template is awesome. Your process is so exciting! My two 15-minute speeches about my business were smash hits. At least 25 people lined up to talk to me afterwards. Thank you so much.”
