Testimonials

Ellen is a great coach and has a natural instinct for understanding the business of branding. Of all the consultants out there, no one can so succinctly dissect and distill the key values that either a person or brand represents. She has a unique talent for analyzing individual attributes and then facilitating a process where language can be honed to communicate in ways that touch the clients we seek to most attract. And she works with people in an honest and candid manner — more than I can say for most consultants who rely more on cheerleading hype than on delivering true value. Working with her was an eye-opening experience, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” August 11, 2011

Marisa Thompson Financial Analyst

“The way you do one thing is the way you do everything”… It was one of the things that Ellen told us during an introduction Web seminar about personal branding… I was curious about what it really meant and wanted to know more… Here I am now a few months later, after this amazing coaching journey with Ellen and with a very powerful personal branding statement brilliantly crafted for me. On top of that, I have a fantastic new job which will allow me to live in harmony with my true self! I can say without any doubt that Ellen was instrumental in this amazing transformation. I have a strong sense of a future filled with good things: many successes and amazing experiences. Thank you Ellen for this wonderful gift!” June 13, 2012. Top qualities:

Celine Landry Hired Ellen as a Personal branding in 2012

“Ellen’s creative talent has been very valuable to me. The brochure that she so expertly crafted as a result of a written questionnaire to several of my clients continues to work for me. It is a work of art; people hang on to it and come to me months later because someone had handed it to them. I continue to highly recommend Ellen to anyone that wants a personal brand and is building or expanding their business or sphere of influence. Ruth Kellogg LCSW” January 24, 2012.

Ruth Kellogg Hired Ellen as a Business Consultant in 2009, and hired Ellen more than once

“Ellen is the best at what she does. I have researched and interviewed many in her field – in the range of hundreds and from many areas of the world and over the last 12 years: and I must say in terms of delivery of branding, expertise in her field and creativity, you are unlikely to find better. The branding process is not easy: it is creative and difficult in terms of balancing ideas with a myriad of complex factors. It is also difficult because it can get personal and with the associated challenges of myopia. Ellen has the skills of listening to pry what she needs to create a brand and then put it together with the keen eye of a Michelangelo – dusting off what is not representing you or your company.. leaving a masterpiece that leaves people breathless and wanting more.” January 18, 2012.

Sunil Bhaskaran Hired Ellen as a Business Consultant in 2011

“Ellen did a workshop on “Personal Branding” for employees at our HQ in late July.

We were astounded by the way Ellen effectively shared her decades of experience in a highly engaging, charismatic and humorous way. She provided actionable takeaways we could imediately apply to our professional careers and personal lives. The event was standing room only and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Ellen truly “knocked it out of the park” for us and would not hesitate to bring her back!” August 3, 2011.

David Puvirajasingam Hired Ellen as a Workshop Speaker in 2011

“She’s highly skilled, professional and intuitive in her work. She was excellent at drawing out my value and giving me the skills to express it in a heart-felt and understandable manner. I really left her course understanding that I’ve always had a brand and that how I express that brand is in my control.

I really understood and am able to communicate what I do, know and believe.

I have an outstanding brochure and company name that really communicates who I am and what I do for women.

Working with Ellen was an invaluable journey in self discovery. The workbook led me easily through a process that allowed me to articulate my brand and to find my charismatic style. It was enjoyable and highly beneficial.” February 23, 2011.
