“As an Education Administrator for a large government hospital I have called on Elise to facilitate ‘Emotional Intelligence’ with our staff as part of our journey to create a ‘Culture of Excellence.’ Elise is an excellent presenter and keeps the audience engaged throughout the session by using adult learning principals. The course critiques by participants rate this offering as outstanding!”



“I’ve invited over sixty-three different lecturers, faculty, and facilitators to THF over the past three years to work with our Navy Seals and Special Operation Forces. We received some of the highest and most positive survey responses from Elise’s course in our history. Her facilitation expertise and methods are superior and very hard to come by. She is extraordinary even among the extraordinary!”
