Clients Say...

Musician, So Percussion

 

"Aside from her practical and hands-on approach to building a brand, Astrid explodes with energy at every turn, inspiring you to sit up and take notice of every word she says.  I have to say, I work with passionate people in the arts on a daily basis, and I have never come across anyone so genuinely excited to help people seek their highest potential.  Yes, my experience with Astrid has been tied to the music business side of the world, but her energy, skills, and practices can and should be applied to anyone seeking to be employed doing the thing they love to do."

Associate Director of Development, Houston Grand Opera

I’ve spent countless hours in mediocre professional development settings, chocked full of “buzz-words,” that like a gourmet meal, leave you temporarily sated, but then hungry for substance. Astrid was the exception. The sessions spent with her have left me completely inspired and armed with relevant techniques on time management, conflict resolution, how to tap into my areas of passion and strength, the ability to identify personality types and deal with them effectively, and knowledge of my life purpose. Since working with her, I have made great strides in my communication with colleagues, effectiveness in the office, and feel happier about my life overall. I give Astrid my highest recommendation to anyone who is fortunate enough to consider working with her. Do not pass up this opportunity!

My colleagues and I benefited immensely from Astrid's communications and branding workshops.  She established a great rapport with our group so that everyone felt comfortable discussing their strengths, weaknesses and individual styles of communication.  Astrid provided specific and concrete tools for creating a unique brand that was meaningful to both very junior and very senior lawyers.  We left each session with individualized feedback and energized to take the next steps in our careers.  We will definitely invite Astrid back for more programs!’
