I engaged Marjorie Whittaker, of The Whittaker Group, to work with a key member of my professional team. Marjorie exceeded my expectations in helping my (soon to be) practice partner improve her accent and communication skills, as well her executive presence. In order to take my business to the next level, it was critical for Dayana to provide an excellent patient experience, and to interface clearly and confidently with colleagues, students, and investors. Marjorie had the coaching tools to deliver what Dayana needed, and allowed me to continue to mentor and retain my top talent. I highly recommend her.
