Thank you.” “What a dynamic speaker! And such a useful topic.” “She was funny, relevant, and this was an ideal topic for business.”

Dr. Carol Goman's "Body Language for Women" workshop at Stanford's Graduate School of Business was wonderfully topical and relevant to the future business women and leaders in the room.  It was a unique
opportunity to get actionable advice targeted specifically to females. The content was highly relevant and I've received nothing but rave reviews.

You were great! Thank you so much for coming to Columbus. I've gotten wonderful feedback from the students and from my co-directors. We'd love to have you back -- and I will certainly recommend you to other leadership program colleagues in the University.

It was certainly a pleasure working with you for our Women In Leadership Conference held in Port of Spain, Trinidad. We have received excellent feedback from the over 300 participants at the conference who have rated you highly in terms of content and delivery.
You have opened my eyes (as well as the participants eyes) to the silent language cues that may be holding us back, and I, like them, have started putting some of what I have learned into practice already!

"Carol was far and away the best keynote speaker we have ever had at our conventions. She was engaging, interactive and very practical. Our directors are very excited to begin using her insights right away to improve their sales efforts."

Carol Goman’s high-energy presentation to MBA students at Stanford was a great hit with our students. She has a way of blending hard evidence with playful activity that lets her make her point without having to lecture. Students packed the classroom to hear her speak and left with greater knowledge and improved skills at the end of her workshop. I’d strongly encourage others to work with Carol. She’s a pro and a joy!

Thank you for your energizing and informative presentation on "The Silent Language of Leaders" at the IABC World Conference. I chatted with several folks who attended your session and they too were buzzing about the things they learned about themselves! I also wanted to commend you on your presentation format. Your use of the quiz and then the use of the questions that participants read was brilliant.
