“All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.”
— Michael John Bobak
Beate’s presentation style is very compelling and interactive, and she kept the audience engaged and entertained. The women in attendance, including me, walked away inspired and motivated, with a clear plan and action steps to designing their best fit client. Beate is an excellent speaker, blending her own experience as a successful entrepreneur with the stories of the many women she works with.
I was very moved by the presentation and look forward to promoting this gender equalizing and leadership balancing system to my own company and others.
Beate came completely prepared to speak to our group. She was professional and motivating…but most important of all – she got a large room of high schoolers to cheer towards the end of her inspiring speech. I’m positive they left feeling encouraged and uplifted. We were grateful for her energy, knowledge and enthusiasm.
Thank you very much for speaking to the GABA community! I believe I speak for all attendees that the content was very valuable and inspiring. Interesting was also, that it made so much sense listening to your tips and guidance, yet, I have not been able to come up with many of these thoughts myself. Aside from the content, I always enjoy your visual and verbal presentation style. Thank you for your support to GABA! Being able to offer quality presentations like yours is what keeps the community thriving.
