Really engaged my mind to challenge myself in creating a short narrative/pitch to deliver a powerful message/action. Overall left feeling encouraged and empowered!

Storytelling as a leadership opportunity is a great lesson I’ll take with me throughout my career. Extraordinary work here, Olivia.
— James Marshall, Global Product and Commercial Counsel, VISA
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!
— Angela Taylor, Software Engineer, Google
I attended this session to develop a personal pitch for job hunting and got so much more out of the event than I expected. It was fun, engaging, and I walked away with better perspective on how to create my story as well as a solid draft to refine. Olivia is a wonderful and dynamic facilitator. Thank you!

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, The Pride
It sounds simple but how Olivia explained how your audience of your story may absorb it or latch on via the head (data) OR the heart (emotion), and that they may be distinct from how YOU approach or buy-in to things, was a major ah-ha moment and made the whole time worthwhile.
— Nicki Nardella, Strategic Account Manager, LinkedIn
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, 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. Olivia coached me through the crafting of our organization’s narrative and helped 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.
