Thanks to Elizabeth, my vision of being a recognized thought leader for Change Intelligence is now a reality. Even before I had a book, she saw what was possible for my message and gave me the strategy I needed to launch my book and grow my platform as an author, speaker and strategist. All of this has lead to repeat speaking engagements, top-tier clients, and unique opportunities I wouldn’t have had before. I couldn’t have done it without her!
