What Clients are Saying...


Patricia Fripp addressed the Michigan Credit Union League Conference, and her presentation on "Leadership Presentations: How to Inspire Action and Commitment" was a great success. She demonstrated what it means to hold the audience in the palm of your hand. At the same time, she told the audience exactly how to do that in our presentations. We laughed, learned, and walked away committed to focusing more on the power of our own presentations.

Fripp teaches more than public speaking; she teaches you how to put "wow" into your presentations. Even if you never give a formal speech, her ideas, techniques, and suggestions will help improve your personal speaking skills and style. If your goal is to improve the communication of your leaders and associates, then Fripp is for you!
