A quick note to say thanks again for your positive, impactful coaching. It has made a big, big difference for me, and not just regarding giving a speech (which in and of itself has been huge). Your insights have really helped me link the opportunity to give a talk — and to me ‘being me’ — to being better able to share my unique gifts in service to others. This is a blessing.
Dina is a master coach. I was first trained by Dina and then I hired her to train the managers on my team. In my experience being trained she was insightful, succinct and focused. She quickly assessed what would make me better and provided very specific (and unvarnished) training on what to do. My presentation skills were markedly improved after just two meetings. Our exec hired her annually to brush up the presentation skills of his directs prior to a set of broad executive planning meetings. D… Read more

I was introduced to Dina while preparing for a competitive pitch. Even though I am pretty comfortable presenting on the stage but this one was different and with high stakes. It was a 60 sec pitch in front of hundreds of people and on a new stage. In just one meeting, Dina gave me new tools to overcome stage-fear and provided feedback on my presentation to make it better such as where to stress my words and where to even smile. When I got on the stage, because of all the preparation, I felt a ne… Read more
In partnering with Dina on a high-profile spokesperson readiness effort, I was continually impressed with her keen eye and ability to detect actions and habits that interfered with effective presentations, communicate suggested changes in a way that was non-threatening and would resonate with the participant, then motivate participants to really embrace and practice the behaviors and skills she imbued in them. She really had a strong, positive impact.

I’d definitely recommend Dina as a strong resource for anyone starting their “spokesperson journey” or someone who has been doing it for years and wants to improve their perform… Read more
