What people are saying about Connect And Stand Out

These two ladies did an amazing job. I can not say enough great things about their skills in working with aspiring speakers and taking them to the next level. They are a gift you would be giving yourself with their four part program so inexpensive and yet so amazingly impactful.
— Dr. Dorothy Martin-Neville,, President, CT Chapter of the National Speakers Association
I attended today and must report that this was the most dynamic and fun workshop I’ve ever attended. The time flew by and everyone left feeling more connected, having powerful new insights that can be implemented both on stage and one-to-one. Thank you Ellen and Jenny!
