Rave Reviews

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Your dynamic Speech at our Professional Development Symposium (PDS) received rave reviews from the attendees. Feedback we received included “I learned more in the first five minutes of Kimi Ziemski’s Speech “Effective Communications – How a Soft Skill is the Hard Currency of Project Management Productivity” than I learned in any other entire Conference session”, “Great workshop”, “Many practical things which I can begin using immediately”, and many other accolades. The audience was a combination of techies and managers who want to enhance their project management knowledge base. You were one of the few presenters who can reach all members of such a diverse audience.

Your Speech was a key factor in making PDS a very successful Conference. I appreciated how easy you were to work with, and how you handled everything in a highly professional manner. Personally, I also learned some very valuable techniques which will enhance my communications abilities.

It is always a pleasure working with you and I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.

Overpassed My Expectations

My takeaways from this seminar overpass my expectations.

Know Their Sutff

“It’s easy to find workshop and seminar leaders who know their stuff. It’s easy to find workshop leaders who are smart and funny. It’s easy to find a charismatic individual to fill your head with information. BUT… it’s very had to find all of those individuals wrapped into one that actually provides more than anticipated.

What sets Kimi apart is that she engages her participants in a way that further develops their own smarts, by connecting them to the content using gentle humor and relevant anecdotes that illustrate success in survival in even the most difficult situations.

I left with a sense of what I could, and actually have, accomplished with the tools and suggestions harvested from the activities and interactions that are a hallmark of her facilitation style. Kimi is absolutely fantastic in providing thoughtful programs to better personal leadership, communications, progression, success, and fulfillment.”

Outstanding

“What was most useful is the focus on having deliverables. E.g., project charters, risk probability-impact matrix, RAM, etc.. Also, the reinforcement of the need for clarity and priorities. All was helpful. Kimi is OUTSTANDING! AX3 = *agile *authentic *articulate.”

It Was All Great

Kimi kept the focus on how to do and use communications tools strategically. It was all great – didn’t think we’d be able to learn much in two days but she was the best instructor I’ve had in many years – bring her back!”
