Testimonials

What our past clients have to say about ADVO

From the Executive Director, Pediatric Hospital, Los Angeles

Jacki DeLanders

Public speaking is a daunting task for me. Working with Greg and Peter from ADVO helped me get out of my head and to focus on the goal of my presentation.The course covered a lot of information, delivered in concise sections that were easy to absorb. The structure was clear, logical and effective. But it wasn’t just about the new knowledge. The main benefits came from doing assignments and receiving individual feedback. They have enabled me, coached me and given me confidence to implement new techniques. I didn’t just learn “how” to communicate but “what” and “why” also became much clearer. So grateful for the opportunity to work with ADVO and improve my presentation skills. Greg and Peter are the greatest!

From the President of Angeles College

Lloyd Sun

Working with ADVO has made a huge impact on me. To realize my fullest potential by being more self aware, and using the tools I discovered from the sessions to better communicate and connect with audiences...thus building up my confidence in work and life. It has been an amazing learning experience.

From the President of Q-POINT HEALTH

Lisa Stevens Anderson

The ADVO team provides actionable immediate feedback on strategies and tactics to communicate vital business information. Their ability to understand your business model, regardless of the industry, and help you deliver powerful messages will leave your audience waiting for more!

From the CEO of Equality Health

Hugh Lytle

Wonderful experience – hampered by a rushed environment but ADVO added tremendous value to our management presentations. Thank you for your work with both me and the team. I will certainly recommend ADVO to others.

From the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work

Neva Wallach, MSW, Dean’s Leadership Scholar

I’ve worked with ADVOgroup for three different presentations, each one more challenging than the previous. Their feedback, coaching and guidance has contributed to taking me from a rookie speaker to a presenter with purpose. I cannot share enough good things about the time I’ve spent with Peter and Greg. They leave me feeling inspired and empowered each time we meet.
