What our clients say about us

“I have had the pleasure of working with Heidi Wise on many occasions and have left each session an improved communicator. The tips she gave me had an immediate impact on my presentation and communication skills. She also provided me with tools and techniques that I practice and years later, they continue to make me a more effective speaker. Whether she is suggesting strategies to overcome a weakness or honing in on a strength, Heidi has a constructive and engaging approach that makes it easy to incorporate her suggestions while maintaining my own style."

Jonny Moseley Olympic Gold Medalist, TV Personality, Brand Ambassador, Product Developer

"Heidi has been very valuable to me in honing my public speaking skills. Going well beyond her obvious mastery of technique, she draws on an intuitive sense of each person's innate approach, enabling people to speak more clearly and effectively out of our natural selves. It has been a delight to work with her, and I would recommend her highly to anyone serious about growing in this important leadership skill."

Michael Adler Chief Financial Officer

“The work that you did with the team here really paid dividends, they were truly impressive.”

Brett Williams President and CEO

“Having spoken before large groups before, I didn’t think I needed a speech coach. How wrong I was!! With Heidi Wise’s guidance, I was able to significantly improve my delivery and “own the stage”. Heidi encouraged me with patience, optimism and humor. I received many comments from clients like “you did a terrific job”, “you sounded like a pro” and “you looked so comfortable up there”. With Heidi’s direction and support, I was able to significantly improve my presentation style over a short period of time and make a strong first impression with clients.”

Edie G. Heilman Senior Vice President, Schwab Advisor Network ClGl

"I consulted with Heidi for about a year during a very turbulent period in our company's history. Heidi helped me greatly with presentation skills and techniques that were applied effectively to both external and internal constituencies...Heidi helped enormously in getting emotional/human communications across to our employee groups.

"I certainly would have continued working with Heidi had we not sold the company, including having Heidi assist some of my executive team in their communications -- several of the team had remarked on my improved communications and wanted to experience the same progress."

Gregory M. Evans President & CEO

Thanks for flexing with such a challenging environment and delivering such great work. I heard nothing but praises coming from all who interacted with you.”
