Living a Successful Life

Testimonials


From the Hartford Insurance Company

The class material was exceptional. My co-workers continually borrow my business writing standards flip chart.

I took the class twice because there was so much to learn.

Shira made herself available for weeks after I attended the class. She helped me to improve on a manual that I had been struggling with for weeks.

Shira's class was mandatory. I wasn't happy going in - but she won me over immediately. I learned a lot and it was time well spent.

From ConEdison, New York

Shira is incredibly funny which is helpful for a potentially boring topic. The day went by surprisingly fast.

My favorite part of the class was document editing. I was very helpful to see the before and after and how applying business writing rules makes such a difference.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. It was a great reminder of all I had forgotten.

From Travelers Insurance Company

I learned a lot and had fun doing it.

Shira is a great instructor. She kept my interest the entire day. She clearly has a passion for the topic and brought excitement to the class.

Shira is extremely knowledgeable. Her feedback was supportive and helpful. I feel more confident in my ability to send out professional correspondence.

I hate writing - but Shira made the class fun. The day flew by
