Olivia is an amazing listener and communicator which makes her a superior facilitator. She quickly and completely digests a discussion then succinctly asks the perfect questions to inspire reflection and guide you to where you need to be. In our workshop, her pointed observations, leading directly to ones heart, inspired each of us. It was meaningful and transformative.
— Heather Sawtelle, Founder of Effne
Loved your workshop - it was exactly what I needed. It gave me the tools and process to craft my story, harmoniously representing both my wonderful jobs!
— Narmeen Samad, Sr. Business Process Manager AT Microsoft, Image consultant
I got so much out of attending one of Olivia’s workshops that I reached out to schedule a private session. I wanted to get specific feedback on a 20 minute keynote I had coming up where I’d be sharing my career story. Olivia gave me the exact guidance I needed to help me add more meaningful details to my story and tell it in a more heartfelt way. I really appreciated her attention to detail in listening to my story and providing thorough feedback on it (both positive and constructive). It was a very useful session!

I pitched Pipeline Angels… one of the other investors in the room thanked me for being so vulnerable with my pitch. Before your session, I would not have done that. Thank you for showing us how to be vulnerable and teaching us why.
— Jodi Lasky, Founder of The Pride
Olivia’s workshop was exciting, challenging (in all the right ways) and insightful. I appreciated her energy and presence and had a beautifully inspiring experience. She is sure to uplift and transform any team through her storytelling workshop.
— Svetlana Saitsky, Leadership Coach
Olivia presented this workshop to our entire team. It enabled them to connect their personal story to the story of the company at events and user interviews. Olivia has a special skill for engaging and entertaining people while creating real value for the entire audience.
— Anne Cocquyt, Founder & CEO of the GUILD
As the CEO and founder of a social impact organization, it is important that our stakeholders personally connect with our organization’s mission and vision. That connection usually begins when stakeholders know my personal story and “my why” for creating the organization. Olivia has coached me through the crafting of our organization’s narrative and helping me to connect the dots to my personal story. She also coached me for a keynote presentation, which was a huge success largely because of her feedback and expertise in storytelling.
