Testimonials

Thank you, Arden, for a fantastic training! It was the most interactive Zoom training meeting I’ve ever attended. It was exciting to see the group so talkative and engaged thanks to your fun activities. I liked that you were approachable and made it comfortable for people to ask you questions.

Thank you, Arden, for a great training. The management team is still talking about it. We loved how interactive it was and that it allowed the managers to get to know each other better. I see others practicing some of the things you covered including using I statements and creating agendas for our meetings now. People are more mindful of how they behave and treat each other. It was a really useful and fun training and we look forward to having you back soon.

Thank you, Arden! You were fantastic! The participants loved all the interaction through chat, polls, and talking! This was our most attended virtual Lunch and Learn to date!

Arden, your Workplace Respect and Effective Communication training was great. Your comfortable style helped open up communication between employees. And, I appreciate that you gave us tools to approach situations differently. As a result of the training there’s more understanding between coworkers, and staff are using I statements. It was what I had hoped for from the training.

We hired Arden to give an all-day training on a variety of business etiquette topics. Going into the training the participants were concerned it would be a full day of lecture and dos and don’ts. However, we were pleasantly surprised at how useful and engaging the training was. We liked how Arden had us do role plays; interesting exercises and activities that helped teach and cement the material. Arden is a great trainer. She teaches useful skills that help people to be more polished, professional and at ease in a variety of situations.

We really enjoyed your Networking with Ease presentation. It was engaging and the information you shared was very helpful. Several of the participants mentioned they want to start attending networking events to use the tips they learned in the training. We also appreciate how customized the training was to our organization and our needs. You were able to provide information that was pertinent and useful to both our front office and back office teams. We definitely want to have you back for more trainings.

Wow, I am so energized! Your networking presentation via Zoom was so great. It left me feeling energized and inspired to do some virtual networking right now and utilize some of the tips when we are able to network in person! Thank you very much for taking the time to share your expertise with our group – you are AMAZING!!

Arden presented as a lunch-and-learn session at Precept Wine to approximately 40 employees. She did a remarkable job of making the entire team (ranging in ages from mostly 20-somethings to mid 50s) feel at ease. We were definitely disarmed by her engaging style. The notion of an etiquette coach conjures up images of a preachy ogre with a yardstick ready to cross your knuckles at the first offense....not so with Arden! She taught us new tips and tricks in remembering names, ace handshakes and a few nuggets for networking and email/text communication. Loved every minute.
