"Michele is a wonderful person. She conducted our 2 day Advanced PA workshop in KL recently, and received excellent feedback from the delegates. She immediately agreed to step in when I was urgently looking for a replacement trainer for this course. A million thanks to her for that ! The best part about the training was that it was very interactive and delegates managed to gain so much from her many years of experience. She is not just a fantastic trainer, but also a very friendly and joyful person. A very positive and vibrant individual!"

"Michele’s true worth as a PA can be seen in her confidence to share her knowledge with other PAs. Because of her passion for life and people, she goes the extra mile to improve the lives of others. As a speaker and trainer, she moves her audiences into action and motivates them to the best they can be. It is with pleasure that I recommend Michele as a PA, as a trainer and a speaker."
