Carrie and the PowerSpeaking, Inc. team are passionate about helping organizations—at corporations like Genentech, eBay, Autodesk, and Gilead Sciences—develop powerful communication skills that inspire people and get results.

“A large part of our client base is in the high-tech and biotech sectors, so many years ago, we researched and developed HighTechSpeaking®, which helps technical professionals become more clear, strategic, high-impact communicators,” Carrie says. “And in 2018, we launched Confident Speaking for Women, to meet the unique challenges women face in the workplace.  Both are now among our most popular programs.”

Prior to joining PowerSpeaking, Carrieenjoyed more than 30 years’ experience in the learning and development industry, where she led award-winning teams. Then, as now, she believes that “Our purpose is to make great people even greater at what they do every day.”

Fun Fact: Outside of work, Carrie loves watching her son compete in the 800 run.
