Betty’s knowledge on the subject was evident from the moment we started planning. She is an expert on inter-office relationships. She shared the best ways to communicate across generations in the workplace. I would hire Betty again, not only for a Webinar but for a session at a face-to-face meeting as well. ~ National Council of State Legislatures

Betty’s expertise and passion for helping people to improve their communication skills and quality of life is evident within moments of meeting her. Her friendly and respectful manner, along with her fun and genuine approach is disarming and made it very easy to engage and learn.
