“Hilary gave practical (and often humorous) advice to leaders in the area when she spoke on the topic of ‘resiliency’ at the KPMG Executive Leadership Institute for Women. Hilary is a dynamic presenter and infuses energy into the room when she speaks. It is clear that she has encountered many challenges in her career and life but has conquered these with her perseverance and tenacity. The participants could not say enough about her ability to provide frank and honest perspectives in an entertaining manner.”

Tracy K. Kenny, Partner, KPMG

“First let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed the course that Hilary Fordwich presented on Gaining and Retaining Clients. I am currently implementing the techniques with my client, coworkers, and friends. I feel that intentions when communicating are often misunderstood. The techniques taught in this class go a long way to ease and inform the manner and method of conversations that we use with clients, coworkers, and others. This is especially true when the conversations that we are having are tough ones.”

Mike Donoghue, Director, PWC

“My team is still talking about how they enjoyed your boot camp and your great content. As you observed, the team is very social, and they related so well with your examples and stories. Syl told me she is already thinking about ways to reach out to our customer base in 2008. Also, you will be interested to know that 2 of my employees attended the 2-day Northrop Grumman class on ‘Customer Intimacy’ after taking your boot camp. Both told me that they got so much more out of your session. You are a delight to work with and I look forward to some great things in 2008.”

Pam Macaleer, Director, GSA Schedules, Northrop Grumman

“I am still talking to people about the wonderful program and what a dynamic speaker you are. Later in the year, my firm might be interested in having you do a workshop for our lawyers. We are actually going to talk about the 5 C’s at our upcoming Board meeting… You would knock any audience off their feet…”
