Tamela has a rare gift and can tune in to every person sitting before her.  There are very few trainers in this country who can do that.

Joyce Bogosian, Professional Development Coordinator, NM Small Business Development Center

Tamela’s rapport with training participants is amazing. She involves everybody, understands how to use humor and uses the power of her personality to help everybody participate and learn in training.

“I have over twenty years experience in training administration and consider Tamela one of the top training facilitators I have ever worked with.”

Rick Mack, Training Manager - City of Albuquerque

Tamela tailors her training presentations as issues emerge, while never losing momentum or focus. She has the ability to quickly read her audiences’ needs and moods and level of readiness, and respond in a way that keeps their attention. She constantly evaluates her work and relentlessly improves it. She has a wonderful sense of humor and relates well to her audience without fail. She was consistently among the most highly rated of our training instructors and conference speakers. I recommend her highly!

Howard Norman, Director, Executive Education - College of Business, Texas Tech University

Tamela, I just had to take a moment to say “thank you” for the wonderful training that you provided my management team.  Your energy and intuitiveness made your presentations lively and on target. Most importantly you helped us all to be leaders, not just managers.

Rebecca Sultan - Southwest Airlines
