“Hilary’s presentation at our Holland & Knight annual retreat on ‘How to Gain and Retain Clients’ was by far the best program on the subject I have experienced in 38 years of practicing law. I hope we will have you back for our partners next year.”
William B.”Bill” Wilson, Partner, Holland & Knight

“Your content for our female attorneys in our Rising Stars program was well received and really had such a positive impact. We would like for you to work with the next group next year.”
Janis Schiff, National Partner Real Estate Practice and Lead Partners Rising Stars, Holland & Knight

“After all these years of seeing your presentation I want you to know that I still have your ‘5C’s on the back of my door so that I remember them when I go to any meeting and when I’m on the phone with our clients and others. Your content was impactful, really grateful for your content.”

Paul J. Kiernan,

Executive Partner, Washington, D.C., Holland & Knight

“Our members gave her rave reviews-attributable to her enthusiasm and keen ability to connect with her audience. Hilary’s knowledge and intellect, combined with her poised and dignified manner, make her an exceptional presenter. I would have her back in a heartbeat.”

“Great job with the panel Hilary at NDIA, that was one of the most interesting events I’ve attended in a long time. Your insights, energy, wit and intellect kept the entire program moving, interesting and beneficial to attend.”

“Before Hilary even finished speaking, our lawyers were sending me emails praising her program. She offers on-point advice geared towards attorneys, and her engaging personality energized the room.”

Debra Hare,

Director of Business Development, Steptoe & Johnson, LLP

“Your guidance over the last four months helped structure all of our partners on a business development track that is relatively unheard of for lawyers who are not business development partners, or rainmakers. Sitting down with our partners to discuss strategies helped them all pinpoint necessary contacts both in the targeted client realm and opened an entire avenue for pursuing cross-marketing opportunities and carefully tracking them. For me personally, you noted that it is now a time to build collegial relationships with those who are “senior” to me and work with people who are older. This was very helpful advice. You noted that it was important to work on the different areas of business development including speaking, writing, and check-ins with existing clients. I have happily done all of that; your guidance added much needed structure and confidence/reinforcement to the process. Overall, it has been very helpful to have the business development workshops that were tailored to my daily work schedule, life, opportunities, memberships, and contacts.”

“A must attend for anyone in the legal profession who has played or would like to play golf in a business setting. No lawyer should get on the golf course without first attending Hilary’s business golf sessions. If you’re curious about the power of golf in building relationships, you’ll walk away eager to learn the game. If you’re already a golfer, what Hilary has to say will make you think twice about how best to conduct business on course.”

“My law firm already spends thousands of dollars on golf each year, Hilary’s Business Golf presentation was great because she delivered both strategic and tactical advice on how we can better leverage the dollars we already invest in golf. We learned how to build relationships both on and off the course. I highly recommend Hilary to all law firms who want to leverage golf as a business development tool.”

Gary P. Hunt,

Managing Shareholder, Tucker Arensburg, P.C.

“Thank you for the seminar you presented to our Tax Department. Rarely does someone from outside the firm do such an outstanding job of addressing our specific needs. I felt as though you were an integral part of our very own marketing team. It is quite obvious that you carefully listened to us when we briefed you on our meeting goals and concerns. Your material was perfectly targeted to our varied the gamut from juniors to principals and partners. Equally important was your innate ability to judge the audience’s demeanor and elicit not only participation, but also a high degree of interest. A true coup for an early morning meeting! Everyone sensed that you not only “talked the talk, but truly walked the walked,” albeit rather quickly… (The fact that, minutes after you finished, you were booked instantly by a Partner for an upcoming firm-wide seminar, speaks for itself).”
