Answering Tough Questions

Answering Tough Questions

Challenge

Help a brilliant architect communicate her ideas to government.

In the rebuilding after hurricane Katrina, we were asked to prepare a key architect and designer to answer tough questions from the government and the media after the people of Louisiana and Mississippi universally approved her acclaimed Katrina Cottage plans as a dignified replacement for the demeaning FEMA trailers.

 

Solution

Prepare this smart woman to answer any question, anywhere, asked by anybody with polish and connection.

Result

Her Katrina Cottage went into production and is now helping transform a devastated community to a vibrant and beautiful one once more.

Recently, we helped her prepare to accept several awards such as “The 100 Most Influential People in America” and the prestigious Guggenheim Museum Awards.

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.
