“Gerard provided our officers and board with excellent media training that lives on to this day. He not only covered in great depth, the concept and practice of concise messaging and body language, but he took that additional step to provide real life scenarios our media spokespeople might encounter in our industry. His expertise shows in all of our media clippings. Our spokespeople have been on message and have used the techniques Gerard taught them. We couldn't have asked for a better media trainer. Thank you Gerard!”

“We all learn from different people in different ways. I have learned a lot in a number of different ways from Gerard. I have had the privilege of attending his advanced media training session and he also spent time in house to provide crisis communications training for our staff. Gerard is not only knowledgeable about communications, but more importantly, he's passionate about this trade. He provides real-world examples and challenges you every step of the way. Through our business relationship, Gerard has become a mentor and a friend.”
