  • You were a perfect fit for our Administrator Learning Forum global audience! Judging from the meeting evaluation forms, you were a definite ‘hit’ and, in fact, the highest rated presentation of the day! Attendees commented on your engaging style, the organization and relevance of your content, and your wit.

  • Choosing to bring Colette Carlson in for our full-day P&G Annual Admin Offsite was a wise decision. Not only was she the most entertaining speaker our community has had in years, but she exposed our team to fresh techniques on how to effectively communicate. The best part is that everything we learned was applicable to both our professional and personal lives. On a side note, Colette participated with our team the entire day, spent breaks listening to others’ share stories and was one of the very last to leave. Any team who wants to increase their skills to become more effective and productive needs to hear Colette’s message.

  • Nothing but fabulous raves!
