"Antoinetta's presentation was part of a weekend itinerary, and unanimously hers was rated the highest and most valuable. She engaged the group in substantive discussion in a way that enabled all to participate without anyone feeling marginalized. She more than met our expectation of involving the participants in what turned out to be an enormously important part of their orientation weekend." 

"Antoinetta got us off to an amazing start and laid a really solid foundation in a short period of time.  The members of the group have appreciated her leadership and learned a ton in just a few months."

"It got to the heart of the matter with the group and included individual discussions on topics that we all need to learn. Some good practical suggestions that should be easy to implement."

"Interactivity, no judgment, engaging."

"Thoroughly enjoyed her dynamic attitude and energy. It was great."
