I am the president of Refresher Training, LLC. I work with professional speakers and professionals who speak helping them craft and deliver their own unique powerful messages. I am on a mission to bring more hope, health, and happiness into this world by helping others find the courage to use their voice.
I am a respected, sought-after leader and speaker. I spent 20 years designing, delivering, and directing over 1,000 training programs and teams of trainers. In an ah-ha moment, I realized that being an impactful presenter requires more than being an amazing speaker—you also need materials that amplify (and don’t squash) your message.
Being a Speaker Coach and the Slide Designer for TEDxRaleigh 2016 was a transformative experience. I am proud to serve on the international board of directors for the Association for Talent Development. I’m a charter member of the Presentation Guild and Black Women in Business. I serve on the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Advisory Board, I’m an advisor for Black Women in Business and for CityClub Raleigh’s Business Alliance Advisory Board.
I’m the proud author of the TD@Work, “5 Questions for Great Presentation Visuals”, the co-author of two ATD Infolines on designing and delivering live virtual training, and a contributing author of three books: 101 Ways to Make Learning More Active Beyond the Classroom, 101 More Ways to Make Training Active, and SCORE! For Webinar Training: Super Closers, Openers, Revisiters, Energizers.
