"As an Oregon Mayor and President of Oregon State Human Resource Managers Association, I have had the unique opportunity to observe Sharon Ellison speaking to these two diverse groups within a couple of month's time frame. It is remarkable that Sharon is able to adapt her speaking content to meet the specific topics and issues of each group. Sharon has the ability to establish rapport and build trust with her manner and presentation style, which is so comfortable that participants feel as if they are just talking with a close friend. In my opinion, that's the secret to her success, participants are learning critical communication skills while visiting with someone they connect with and trust."

—Lore Christopher, Director, Human Resources, Executive Branch, State of Oregon
