“Elisa’s presentation was engaging both with hands on encouraging audience interaction and questions. She took the presentation on a course that was led by the participants, while continuing to stay on topic and relevant. I found her very knowledgeable yet approachable. I would highly recommend her as a trainer in any situation.”

“The workshop was fantastic, a few of us afterwards were talking about how helpful it was. I already have ideas about how to make my future interviews better based on what we did at your workshop. Thank you for hosting it.”

“I love that the Twenty Hats training relates directly to your work, your present struggles and challenges. It was helpful for me to talk with my struggles out loud to my colleagues during the team brainstorming activities. I was able to relate everything we learned back to my work at my organization in some way, which I didn’t expect, but loved!”
