“Poornima offers a true blend of the artistic and professional and is inspiring to work with.  She has an uncanny ability to help students be authentic and connect to the heart of their message.  I highly recommend working with her!"

Leora T.,  Presenter & Writer

"If you feel drawn to working with Poornima, do it! She is smart, insightful and creative . . . way more than a speech coach.  She can help you craft a better talk or teach you how to deliver it in a more effective manner, and what I appreciate most about Poornima is her ability to listen and brainstorm with me. I love that no idea is stupid. She really gets me and what I am trying to get across."

Steven K., Professor

"Poornima made the difference in preparing me for a high-stakes presentation at work.  As a result of her work with me, I was chosen over 106 applicants and 5 finalists for a life-changing promotion.  Without her incisive, empathetic and extremely practical coaching I am sure I would not have achieved these results."
