“Holly’s dynamic style and energy are extremely engaging, helping her audiences listen and learn throughout her presentation. I love it when presenters provide simple “How To’s” and I walked away from Holly’s workshop with a list of tips that anyone could implement. Because she is so approachable, we talked afterwards and she quickly provided me with topic-specific direction on one of my current projects. I really enjoy Holly’s high-spirited approach and ability to motivate.”

“I have had the honor of working jointly with Holly on client projects and there are so many wonderful things I could say about her, but I will synthesize it down to one word, ‘amazing!’ As a business coach & facilitator, I have seen her work with clients and witnessed the manner in which she identifies problems, brings solutions to the table and then follows through to get the job done. She is professional, accomplished and has a vast understanding of the difference between strategic & tactical which serves her well in leadership development. In addition to these things, she has a unique sense of humor that she knows how to use at just the right time to make for the perfect blend of ‘human capital development’ success for her clients. Picture, if you will, a combination of the tenacity of Oprah Winfrey; the compassion of Princess Diana; the spirit of Bill Gates; the creativity of Steve Jobs; and the one person in YOUR life who you most admire as successful – and you will have only a small visions of Holly Duckworth, CMP! I would highly, have and will continue to recommend her to clients who need it done, done right, done on time and done with a very special flair!”
