“Britt, sending a ton of thanks for your support of the Leader meeting last week—a TERRIFIC experience. The talk you gave spirited people in such a positive way AND your delivery was flawless. Thank you for helping us to get our leaders into the “think differently” space. Loved it!”
“I've done the ‘required’ management and leadership training at a number of companies from small startups to giants in the enterprise space—including Microsoft and Cisco—and without a doubt, the inperson training that Britt has done for us at Avvo has been the most engaging and useful of all. The way she combines scientific research, first-hand experience, and practical advice has been incredibly valuable.”
“When a company has a major culture shift, you can rarely look to one person. Britt was an exception to this. What looked like company-wide management training became the foundation for the conversations, relationships, and plans to positively impact the culture. She was the rock and rockstar in the organization making sure the culture was solid.”
