What did East European Folklife Center need?

Deborah helped East European Folklife Center refine their presentation and speaking skills to better engage an audience and deliver key messages.

Why is this project important?

The EEFC is at a critical juncture in our development. In late 2012 we hired our first Executive Director, and we have begun thinking strategically about our growth and development for what may be the first time. We are a community-based organization, and as such the ED needs help refining her ability to convey this important work in public appearances. It's important that she communicate clearly, gain and maintain trust, and be seen as a strong leader.

This project will save us $8,660, allowing us to provide instruction in rare musical instruments to 20 adult learners.

What did they have to say?

Deborah worked with me in a very holistic way to help me prepare for a speaking opportunity at my organization's on-site workshops this summer. She offered a nice balance of meditation-oriented techniques and practice sessions (on video-conference) so that I got into great shape before my first event. I would recommend Deborah highly.

Executive Director

Jennifer "Jay", is always listening to new ideas, very willing to run things by other team members, and never stops learning and questioning why things are done or not done a certain way. These are the ultimate tools of success for any leader. Congrats Jay, I think you got it. It was a pleasure to meet you. I know you will make a "NEW" impression at camp this year!
