Jeff is my first choice when I need a top-notch communications
coach or media trainer to work with senior executives.
Thanks again for the superb media training session with Johnson’s Chairman and CEO. It could not have gone better!.. It was a joy working with Jeff to prepare the sessions, and I look forward to other opportunities to use his skills in the future.
Thanks to you, our chief engineer handled one of the sharpest journalists like a champ. Genuinely engaging. Supremely confident. And passionate. It was masterful.
The training experience was excellent… We all got to see how our messages can be honed to an edge, and how to deliver them under a “variety” of circumstances. The product was more than I had hoped we could achieve.
Sincere thanks to you for preparing our CEO to handle the ABC 20/20 smoke detector segment so well. We achieved our goal of having a fair and balanced report air… The segment seems to have actually stimulated, not hurt, interest among our customers in purchasing our photoelectronic smoke detectors.
The difference in the ‘before and after’ interviews was astounding, not only when sitting in front of the camera, but also watching the improvement of my co-workers… The effectiveness of your trainings has made you an integral part of our team. We really appreciate the pragmatic, real-world approach afforded by your own media experience, and your tailoring of the trainings to meet our specific global needs.
Jeff’s hard work and attention to detail made the trainings even better than I had anticipated. He brought to the project great insight and instinct, and helped me feel more comfortable with the process.

I learned a great deal about an area which, quite frankly, was of serious concern to me. I now feel much better equipped to handle situations with the media (although I can’t guarantee that I could resist physically abusing any reporter as antagonistic as the one Jeff so admirably played!). Good job!

We’re still singing your praises here all the time. We loved the sessions. Some of us were kicking and screaming going into the sessions, but we were all thrilled with the experience coming out… Your enthusiasm and knack for uplifting confidence really presented itself in the room. I just wanted to let you know that I’m glad your skills will benefit a global city and we have you to thank.
