Elissa Telfer - London

Elissa is a “people person” above all else. Her focus and understanding of what motivates us makes her a highly efficient communication coach. Elissa ran an instructor led session on ‘Executive Presence’ for a team at Microsoft and it was outstanding.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Elissa for the day. She taught me a great deal about how to become a more effective presenter with executive presence.
