Comments from past participants:

“The coaching that I received from Catherine Lamboley was brilliant!”

“Linda [Chanow]’s mastery of the art of speech brought a whole new perspective on how women communicate in the workplace. I gained so much from her insight and perspective on communication skills in general.”

“The support that I got from the other women was amazing, and it’s rare to be able to get such objective feedback from someone in Cathy or Linda’s position.”

“I have made a paradigm shift about my abilities.”
