At least we have our friends from this group, and now, Heather’s excellent advice! I am excited to have her book.”

Testimonials & Reviews

Went to one of Heather's presentations recently and enjoyed it immensely. While she speaks from the perspective of a woman, she talks to the entire audience, male and female. Her talks will encourage dialogue in your organization.

I appreciate Heather's ability to address (as an author and speaker) the basic but oh so complicated issues we are all dealing with in our own individual relationships during this time of pandemic and social change. Heather did a well-received and inspiring presentation. I recommend her to any group for an engaging presentation!
