"Natalie works wonders with every part of my presentations, from suggestions for the visuals to the specific wording of my speech to the art of delivery and engaging with the audience. No matter what my speech is about, she brings in her own experience and insights. She is the total package I’ve needed to feel confident with ever-changing material and critical audiences. I highly recommend her!"
- ANITA KRAMER, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, CENTER FOR CAPITAL MARKETS & REAL ESTATE, URBAN LAND INSTITUTE
"Dear Natalie, I can't thank you enough. Your lessons were worth every dollar X 100!!! I learned so much from you that I'm a better person for it. I now understand the complexity of the human voice as the most powerful and basic form of communication. Thanks for going the extra mile. You are truly an outstanding teacher."

- 2009 AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE WORKSHOP ATTENDEES
"We really appreciate the time and effort you put into the Workshop. I definitely could see a difference in the presentations of many of the participants, and it gave them very useful techniques to use in the future. A couple of the Workshop participants presented at the main sessions and I could see the benefits of the Workshop in their talks, especially because they had a day or so to integrate some of the lessons."
- LORRAINE SILSBEE, NIH, AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION WORKSHOP COORDINATOR
"Natalie was fantastic! She was very approachable and relatable and is an excellent example of what a good public speaker should be. I would recommend this workshop for anyone interested in improving their public speaking skills."
"Natalie is so knowledgeable, entertaining, and personable. She did an excellent job in engaging everyone and in individualizing her comments. Wonderful and fun time!"
"The practice sessions, both my own, and watching others was most helpful. The phone consultation helped immensely."
