corporate training experience
NEA Regional Conference 2006. North Conway, NH - Presentation & facilitation workshop
“Genevieve did a fantastic job in helping us to become more proficient in public speaking. She was patient, encouraging, supportive and always provided us with positive and constructive feedback. Since Gen has been coaching us, we have both received feedback from employees indicating that they have seen a marked improvement in our presentation skills. Thanks to Gen, we are much more relaxed and polished in front of a group. Again, we cannot stress enough how delighted we are with Genevieve ‘s services. She has been very inspirational to us and we hope to have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.”
“I can say without qualification that my studies with Genevieve gave me skills and confidence which I use directly in my corporate training and presentations… my ability to speak with confidence and clarity was greatly enhanced. Genevieve has a unique ability to bring out the best in her students…She knows how to get a diverse group of adults to coalesce as a team, and to challenge one another to produce the best possible presentation. Further, she is able to get the group to do this in a mutually supportive fashion, with an emphasis on cooperation. In short, not only is she an outstanding one-on-one personal coach, she is a tremendous group leader.” – Sally H. Mulhern, J.D. Attorney At Law
“I was as tired as I can get on Friday morning and never once felt like dosing off …Your control of the group was first rate and that leads to what I learned today: Know how to treat your audience… and we need to rehearse the theatrics as well as the content. I don’t think most of us were conscious beyond content.” – Participant, Presentation Workshop, The Macmillan Company
“Genevieve creatied a very comfortable atmosphere for the staff, which made it easy for us to take a serious look at our own presentation styles, and how we can work to improve those. Some individual comments: Fantastic. Super. Excellent – give her more time. Really wonderful! She has a lot to offer. Very energizing. Very helpful to our work. Have her back.” – Steve Sacks, NH-NEA

“Genevieve was wonderful! She is so knowledgeable and experienced in the arts. I felt she provided a safe environment and encouraged us to be creative. Such talent! Lots of good information was provided that I can use in my classroom.” – Participant, Teacher Workshop for The Music Hall, Adapting Children’s Literature for Performance
“Your enthusiasm and passion for teaching children and ensuring that they had the maximum opportunity for a successful experience with theatre was wonderful to observe. I was so inspired by watching you work. You have such a great way of creating and honoring opportunities for kids to stretch, resourcing your own heart and brain and soul for ways to help them succeed and then letting go and embracing them at just the right moment. I have absorbed a wealth of insight from you!” – Beth Boynton, Student, Antioch New England Graduate School, Dept. of Management & Organization
