What Clients Say
I enthusiastically recommend Gisele as an expert communications consultant.
Gisele also was incredibly professional; established and met her deadlines; dealt with staff issues with aplomb; and provided me, as executive director, with just the right level of engagement and information.
Frederick Isasi, Executive Director
Gisele really helped us to think strategically about how we targeted audiences, generated interest around key issues, and built partnerships to address them.
She worked collaboratively with our staff and partners to improve our capacity to more strategically manage our communications.
Dennis Flemming, former Executive Director
Gisele was a fantastic partner to our organization and an outstanding leadership coach. She quickly identified why two of our teams were struggling with cross-sectional collaboration and carefully guided us through the steps we needed to take to turn things around.
Along the way, she provided me with valuable leadership coaching that strengthened my team management and planning skills.
Fern Stone, chief development & communications officer
The Children's Inn at NIH
Gisele's training helped me to know the right questions to ask program leaders to get to the heart of what they are trying to achieve, so I could advise how communications could support in achieving the program's vision and goals.
She helped me to see and demonstrate the value of strategic communications to the teams that I support, and I have been able to take these learnings and run with them well beyond the training.
