What Clients Say

  • Working with Valerie Atkin was one of the key factors in the successful acquisition of my business. Valerie has an uncanny ability to fully engage herself with the entire company and navigate through the politics and individual personalities that get in the way of implementing a successful business plan. Her consulting and coaching allowed us to bring together not only the Senior Leadership Team, but the entire organization. We now have the right people focused on doing the right things

  • Your presentation woke up the spiritual sales warrior in me, and believe me, it's been in a coma for quite a while!!

    Katherine Culhane
  • First off, Valerie is smart. Really smart. She is also articulate, witty, quick-minded, thoughtful, clever and creative. Needing support to get some strategic business things accomplished, I initially hired Valerie to be my coach/taskmaster. I am accomplishing tasks. No question Valerie gets high marks for this alone. But I am also getting way more out of our coaching relationship than I expected. Valerie is a teacher, a mentor, and a wise friend. In a very short time, she has had a marked impact on my life both professionally and personally.

She creates a positive, focused environment where each participant leaves accountable for themselves as well as committed to the success. She's a great facilitator!
