"Michelle's professionalism, vision and her successes are built on her dream to impact the world through changing and enhancing the way high performing organizations and their leaders go about doing what they do. Her consulting work has had an amazing impact on my own organization, the City of Fort Wayne's Office of Housing and Neighborhood Services. Those of us who believe that leaving this world a better place than where we found it extends far beyond the workplace can find great results in working with Michelle. In her work to challenge, guide and advise America's top leaders, Michelle's impact is broad and far reaching, leaving organizations, businesses and yes, even families, indirectly, better than she found them."

"Good morning, Michelle. I want to let you know how valuable your Customer Communication Skills presentation was because on the very next day at work, I had to deal with employee differences. I used your info on attitude/actions speech. At first when I heard you speaking, I thought this was for just for customer service but found out it pertains to much, much more in my life, in fact every area - where I am right now. Thanks. I am planning on going to the Women's Business Forum June 11 at Trine Univ. and notice you will be there also. I look forward to learning more from you."

"I want to share with you how well the presentation went. I had last minute adjustments (not to the presentation itself, but how/when/where logistics) but everything went perfectly. In the end, I had the confidence I needed as a result of our time and attention together - so thank you. Thank you!! Your coaching was the best gift I could have given myself when I needed it!"

When I found out I would represent my company at 6 hours of training on how to do presentations, I rolled my eyes and yawned. After all, I know what I'm talking about, have a good speaking voice and I'm capable of organizing info. What else could I possibly need to know?
Well, how to make a better presentation. Your workshop was full of practical, useful information presented in an interesting, engaging manner. I enjoyed it and learned a lot.
Thanks for the useful tools you presented. I answered every question on the GC presentation outline to help organize my thoughts and presentation. I plan to use it in the future so I won’t feel disorganized even when I appear to be organized. I will think on my feet and be more responsive to my audience. Your comments and those from my peers pointed out that stating my data sources, using personal examples and trying to express more emotion would improve my presentation. These are great suggestions.
Thanks again for helping improve my presentation skills.

"Michelle has been a speaker at several of our Indianapolis events and is a very popular seminar leader. Her knowledge of her topics and her delivery is impeccable. We always have people that want to see more of her. She is the best!"
-- Onda Williams, Director of Education
American Credit Association of Indianapolis
"Michelle made a connection with the students. She didn't hide behind a podium - she made herself and the subject matter (customer communication skills) approachable. Our leasing consultants, property managers, and owners took applicable techniques and skills back to their properties, then applied what they learned right away. Gladieux Consulting listened to us and worked hard to understand our industry, then took the information to heart and customized the presentation for our very specific needs. The students definitely noticed the preparation and appreciated it."
-- Jay Scott, Exec. Director
Apartment Association of NE Indiana
RE: Customer Communication Skills seminars
"Gladieux Consulting went the extra mile by offering to critique the writing of training participants prior to the seminar and then meet with them one-on-one to review. The feedback from trainees was extremely positive. Everyone came away with specific ideas about how to improve their writing. Michelle's knowledge of the topic and her enthusiasm made this an excellent training session. She sprinkled hands-on activities and examples of written material from our company with humor to make a typically dry topic an interesting one. I highly recommend this training to other companies."

RE: Better Business Writing seminar
"Michelle was extremely well received by both experienced and novice training professionals. Comments ranged rom 'Michelle was the best public speaker I've heard' to 'I feel engaged to make a difference in my own organization'. We would welcome Michelle back as she was part of Best Buy's Leadership Conference's success."
