The Pleasure of Watching a Client Shine

Nothing’s more rewarding than helping a client move from competent to great, from presenter to performer. Robert Edsel, author of “Rescuing Da Vinci: Hitler and the Nazis Stole Europe’s Great Art—America and Her Allies Recovered It,” created the Monuments Men Foundation, not to mention a George Clooney movie was later based on his book. He did so to showcase the unique role of the United States military and our allies in protecting the cultural heritage of Europe by retrieving the hundreds of thousands of pieces of looted art and valuables.

Recently, a $100 million Modigliani turned up, and Robert says thousands of more turn up as the WWII generation passes. After a recent appearance on CNBC, I wrote Robert to tell him he had mastered the medium, and he was gracious enough to write back!  His kind words to us:

“Great public speakers don’t appear by accident. Merrie and her team of professionals deliver maximum training in a short period of time that is essential to anyone speaking to the media and all those with a message to deliver. It is an investment that will pay a lifetime of dividends.”

If you want your executives to move from presenter to star performer, we will help. Whether you’re sharing the story of art thieves in WWII-era Europe, or preparing for a company-wide conference, we can help craft your unique message and upgrade your delivery skills for maximum impact and memorability.
