"Being interviewed by Dennis and then turning around and watching the interview with him was an amazing revelation. He is a great coach, an excellent director, and his style is direct and affirming. Working with him has changed my view of myself and has opened doors for me that I never imagined I would walk through."

--Frank Butterfield, Life & Work Coach, Austin, TX

“As part of my ongoing development, Dennis was recommended to me by my Line Manager in Shell. I understood that we would be working in the field of effective communications, and that we did... but much more. I have found - and am finding - an unfolding transformative experience. We discussed bridging the perceptive gap between self and others, and leveraging strengths and characteristics. I am becoming more effective, and more conscious in my daily interactions, more aware. more centered, more present. The gap, I am finding, is exactly where I need to be and our continued dialogue and interaction is opening new avenues in creativity and discovery. Thanks Dennis.”

--Derek Smith, Global Process Improvement, Shell Oil

--Karen McCullough, CEO, Karen McCullough & Co., Branding Expert, Speaker

"One of the most important keys in public speaking is for the speaker to feel confident in his delivery. Your video coaching clearly helped me understand my giftedness and strengths in speaking publicly. This has allowed me to feel more comfortable and confident which causes the audience to be more receptive to my message. Thank you for your help. Coaching presenters on their individual effectiveness is clearly one of your gifts."
