"Elena expertly facilitated several workshops for our client and leveraged her expertise in healthcare and aging to help them think through new business models, a partner strategy and a roadmap to execute on next steps. She was able to manage different personalities and viewpoints and help drive the team towards consensus. At the end of the three days, our client was very satisfied and specifically praised Elena for her insights and guidance."

— Laurent Guinand, Principal, Strategy and Innovation, North Highland

 

“We invited Elena to be a guest speaker for my organization’s women’s group. We had an attendance of 50+ with additional staff participating by video. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with Elena in her previous career and I knew she wouldn’t disappoint… She didn’t! We received all positive feedback from those in attendance and we hope to have her back soon.

Elena is passionate about empowering others and she practices what she preaches. Her 20+ years of consulting and coaching experience shine through her presentations and her presence. Her confidence and welcoming demeanor are the perfect combination, making for engaging conversation. Instead of speaking at you, she encourages participation and expertly facilitates well thought out and interactive discussions.

At times, our group struggles to willingly participate. I can honestly say with Elena’s direction, everyone participated. She created a safe space for people to have hard but honest conversations. It was a fun event and it was evident she got through to the audience.

Elena is genuine and is truly committed to women’s issues. I cannot recommend her more highly if you are searching for a personal/career coach or a guest speaker.”

— Alyssa Heffernan, Relationship Manager
