Elaine was able to balance two important factors throughout the training.

On the one hand, she could offer vulnerability and her own demonstrative stories/examples, which made her relatable. On the other hand, she came across as very expert and knowledgeable about the subject matter, which established trust with the audience right away.

It was dreamy – if that’s the proper way to describe it.

It was perfectly wonderful and we are extremely grateful for the experience!
