I recently engaged Hilary both to deliver a keynote at our Leadership Offsite with many SAIC executives as well as to develop and deliver bespoke training to our business development and capture teams. The initial result: outstanding. Hilary came in and engaged our learners through interactive dialog and activities. The feedback from our team was exceptionally positive, they all want to have her back. We received comments such as “Phenomenal instructor would absolutely recommend using her again” and they shared that they enjoyed Hilary’s style, benefited from her broad knowledge of BD, and her many real world examples backing up all the concepts…Her candid personality was a total hit. I look forward to continuing to work with her going forward.
