For the past several years Louise has worked with MBS on the Senior Executive Program which is one of the Executive Education unit's Flagship Programs. She has undertaken a small segment of approximately 1-2 hours.

On each occasion she has presented a stimulating, exciting and always well received program, people inevitably report that she has given them new perspectives and insights and that their learning was greatly enhanced by her material and her methods of presentation.

Louise has an amazing ability to instantly connect with her audience with her enthusiasm, energy and passion in delivering her message … to say that Louise has a gift for public speaking is almost an understatement. Not only is her work thoroughly researched and structured for optimal learning, but it is fun and enjoyably interactive.

The Coaching Connection

For my part I rated it outstanding. This should be a compulsory topic for all groups. In fact, it should be incorporated in TEC Chair training. Everyone was really alight after the presentations. My observations were that you engaged the groups better than any other speaker I have seen in many years.


You were a star. We have never had people receive ratings of 6 out of 5 before. Well done. It was everything I knew it would be for the session, and I have heard from a number of delegates who are already reaching out to you for in-house activities.
