What People Are Saying

“The executive team hired Clockwork Talk with the objective of improving our communication and presentation delivery to a wide range of audiences e.g. investors, partners, clients and staff. We have a complex and unique product offering – so it is essential we have breakthrough messaging – high impact and long lasting. The results speak for themselves – our revised messaging is now concise and meaningful, utilizing effective frameworks, with well thought out transitions and points of emphasis.  We were able to do this by tapping into Mila’s years of experience and unparalleled expertise. Mila challenged us effectively as a team and led us through an important discovery process.  She was able to drive consensus and coach us in a thoughtful manner that generated results on all fronts, namely articulation of the message coupled with concise delivery.  In presentation rehearsal, she is very effective at honest critique and feedback and gets her message across without stepping on egos.”

“We partnered with Clockwork Talk earlier this year to be a part of our Accelerated Leadership Development Program at The Home Depot.  Our goal was to make the participating leaders more effective in presenting to executives.  Mila introduced the science behind creating high impact messages in a training workshop and then coached each of the teams separately to deliver powerful presentations.  Participants rated Mila’s sessions as the highlight of the program and many of the comments echoed the following:  “Mila is leading edge when it comes to a revolutionary Presentation Skills program coupled with individual and group coaching on how to apply the skills and internalize the strategic approach to presenting”. We’re thrilled with her contributions and look forward to doing business with Mila again soon. The program was nothing short of EXCELLENT in terms of the value it added to the leaders.”

She was exceptional and significantly improved the strategic messaging and presentations decks my team was able to create. Her approach is very thorough and clear making it easy for executives through to individual contributors to grasp and implement. Mila is the best communications consultant I have ever worked with and sincerely cares about the results her clients achieve. She is customer-focused, has great integrity and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their communications effectiveness.

“Mila is truly a master at her craft. The input and guidance she has provided me as I’ve worked my “message” and brand positioning has been invaluable. Her ability to push through the clutter of ideas and create clarity is truly exceptional. I’ve also had the opportunity to refer Mila to a number of my clients over the past two years, who have all raved about her results. I have no hesitation in recommending Mila and Clockwork Talk, and frankly am surprised that you haven’t engaged with her already!”

Everyone felt that they had come away from the workshop with a powerful set of new skills that would significantly improve their presentation abilities in high stakes communications.”

“BLG (750 law firm with 6 offices across Canada) recently hired Mila to train our Partners on how to plan and deliver key messages more effectively in client pitches, industry conferences and client seminars.  Mila did a fantastic job. She developed a highly customized, interactive training session that fully engaged the lawyers.  She was able to draw our partners into a dialogue, including those who were watching remotely via video conference, not an easy task! Her presentation was a great success. In short, I highly recommend Clockwork Talk.”

“As an MD launched into a new leadership role, I found myself in challenging, unfamiliar territory. I suddenly had to motivate colleagues to act and behave in line with the goals of the department and hospital, and to motivate management to support the department’s initiatives. This meant changing long-standing mindsets – no easy task. With Mila’s coaching, I gained proficiency in presenting my ideas powerfully. The outcomes of this new-found talent have been extraordinary. Also, she truly cares about your success. I recommend her without hesitation.”

“I recently had the tremendous honor of receiving a Distinguished Service Award from a major media industry association.  It was important to me that my acceptance speech capture my heartfelt gratitude and create a strong impression with my media industry colleagues - many of whom are excellent speakers.  Problem was, I am not an experienced public speaker.  Mila’s guidance was invaluable. She helped me create the message and practice until I captured exactly what I was looking for.  The overwhelming positive feedback on my speech was outstanding!  I wholeheartedly recommend Clockwork Talk.”
