Since 1980 she has spoken to over 100 groups every year, many of them repeat engagements. This includes Fortune 100 companies and major associations worldwide.

Her hobby of avid movie going and attending screen writing seminars adds an extra pizzazz to her training sessions that is not generally found with other speech coaches. A media star herself, she has been featured in the press and on TV for over thirty years.
