“I love to watch Jeanne Blake work her magic whether as an individual (which I have personally experienced), or with a group. It’s one thing to have mastery over the text and how we verbally convey our science. It’s quite another to understand – as Jeanne does – the power of non-verbal communication. Jeanne is a unique coach who has developed tools to empower the presenter to convey meaning, words and in action. Those of us in academics are not usually offered this incredible level of expertise. I learned so much, and from someone who is such a pleasure with whom to work.

“Jeanne offered Mastering the Art of High-Impact Presentations to a team of scientists and physicians at Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The feedback was resoundingly positive. Scientists often dive into the details of a story, forgetting the gestalt. Jeanne taught us how to transmit knowledge clearly and succinctly how to keep the audience interested. In a series of hands-on videotaped exercises, Jeanne also demonstrated how to use body language to our advantage.”
