“We worked extensively with Crystal in preparation for a series of international meetings where the presenters’ skills in general needed much improvement. In working with each of our 12 speakers, Crystal produced excellent results without fail and the speakers at each meeting consistently received high approvals from attendees.
Crystal’s approach is thoughtful, tactful, and non-threatening with immediate results. She worked with the team in one-to-one sessions and then as a group to reinforce the techniques we needed to learn. She quickly became an essential member of the meeting team and earned high praise from everyone she worked with. I strongly recommend Crystal to anyone seeking to improve their comfort level speaking in public, their presentation skills and stage presence.”
