Here is a sampling of what people have to say about Amy:
“Amy was engaging, personable, communicative, and connected strongly with the group.”
“Amy was a FANTASTIC facilitator who was incredibly open, funny, honest and thoughtful. She created an environment that felt safe, warm and non-judgmental which is hard to do in a short amount of time amongst people who don't know one another.”
“Honestly, what made this class the best experience was the instructor. Amy was not only extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter personally, she was empowered and passionate about it. That made all the difference. I can easily see how this type of class would come off as cheesy or lost on folks. The key to this course being successful is going to be the instructor and she was perfect. She was also one of the best presenter / speakers I've encountered. Her engagement, comfort and expression couldn't have been better imho. She should continue performing in this type of teaching / coaching role - she's awesome.”
“Easily the best training session I've taken so far, and Amy is the best facilitator I've seen as well. She has a lot of positive energy, and made everyone feel comfortable. I also thought it was great how she incorporated suggestions/ideas for activities from the team into the session - everything felt very fluid and interactive. Thanks Amy!"
“I love Amy's energy and enthusiasm for this course! She is clearly a subject matter expert - I felt very lucky to have her as my instructor. I love how she personalized the class. In the morning, she had us go around the room and say what we wanted to get out of this course. Several times during our session, she referred back to these topics.”
“Amy was amazing! You can tell she's really passionate about the material and knows her stuff. She made sure that everyone felt comfortable and free to share their thoughts.”
“Amy was a brilliant facilitator. She was enthusiastic throughout and kept everything very engaging. My aim is to be able to present just as she did throughout the session - she certainly impersonates the name of the course and I hope I can, one day, be able to present with charisma like she does! Thank you very much, Amy!”
“Amy did great job, being super energetic facilitator providing good feedback and raising important issues to focus. Thank you Amy!”
“Amy did a fantastic job - everyone in the class loved her!”
“This class was a super pleasure. Amy's love and experience with presenting really shined through.”
“Amy is a great presenter and facilitator. Her dynamic significantly stands out amongst other facilitators. She is very energetic, receptive and engaging.”
“Simply AMAZING! Amy is a fantastic facilitator, and she's herself so full of charisma, that learning all those best-practices when presenting in public was so much fun! It's an unnerving experience to have a lot of people dissecting your presentation, and having it recorded, but somehow she managed to make everybody feel comfortable, creating an environment of collaboration where people were not afraid to try and receive constructive feedback!”
“Amy did a fantastic job of inspiring the room, providing great feedback and tips and helping the group open up to the exercise. I cannot express how well she led the course. Great job Amy!”
