What Clients Are Saying

S. A.

Thank you so much for all of your guidance and support, Brenda. You are amazing. We have much work ahead of us, but I feel that we all much better equipped to handle the challenge. I am sure that I can speak for the others that we deeply appreciate your commitment and professionalism.

It is such a fantastic feeling that we are now working together as a team!

Regina Wright

Thank you for your excellent work in the preparation of the report. It is most comprehensive and your presentations on this Report were excellent.
I learned how my “Gregorc Mind Style” will help me understand my natural way and how to relate to people who have different styles. I know i)what makes a good elevator speech and how to make people want to know more and ii) the importance of having ‘offerings’ that will give people a choice. I now have a practical way of making sure my business objectives are met.

M. Tucker

I felt that the exercises were a very good part of the session. This made all of us think about some of the hard questions with respect to the role of management and board members. This approach is more practical and hand-on and works much better than lecture style

Julie Kavanagh

Dr. Kelleher-Flight’s presentation helped us meet our conference goal by providing information to benefit delegates in their respective businesses. We were very pleased with the positive comments on your workshop.

Hubert Langdon

Dr. Kelleher-Flight is very knowledgeable on the subject of governance. She kept us focused on the task at hand and involved us in the discussions on each aspect of governance. She quite willingly and capably answered our questions. She makes the distinction between governance and management quite clear.

Lori Donovan

I found Dr. Kelleher-Flight to be very informative and engaging. What could have been a very tiring session was actually energizing. Dr. Kelleher-Flight’s knowledge of strategic planning was excellent. I learned a lot. She kept us on task and within the timelines. The goals of each session were reached. We also began to think about what kind of board we are (which is very important to us at this time). Overall, I found it very useful. Thank you.
