What Our Clients Say

The [Women’s Seminar] was very well received by all those present, was excellent in content, and very well delivered. Your advice on speaking up, expressing ourselves assertively and eliminating weak language has had an immediate impact on me, personally, and I am certain on all women who attended the seminar. (Since the seminar, I have become much more conscious of my choice of words and delivery style, and have been successful in substituting “weak” verbs for more effective and powerful ones.) GAWN members were privileged to have you with us.
