Head of Legal, US Corporate Banking, Barclays, Helen Walper
Stacee was terrific and engaging to work with and gave me some easy exercises to practice with so I can continue to improve…I really enjoyed my session with her and got a clear insight into areas for improvement. I'd highly recommend her.
IT Risk and Control Leader at Energy GE, Australia, Ad Wolst
Stacee was exceptional in providing me (and my colleagues) with very specific and pragmatic guidance to assist me in improving my public speaking skills. Her diverse background and her fantastic personality made her one of the best public speaking coaches I have worked with or have observed.
Oculoplastic Surgeon at Eye Health Services, John Tyler Hwang
I hired Stacee to help me with media training and public speaking. As a physician, I am prone to use jargon, and Stacee is an expert at training technical people to speak to a general audience. She gave great advice regarding preparation, pacing, speech patterns, and confidence building. Full of constructive criticism without making you feel embarrassed. Overall a productive, practical, and enjoyable experience.
Global Cyber-Forensics Leader, GE, Chris Graves
Fantastic three days of training provided by Stacee! Highly energetic instructor with real, meaningful strategies to improve your public persona, performance and public speaking. Stacee employs engaging methods, with excellent strategies to help "envision" a message, and deliver it with aplomb! Her course was a real blast; thoroughly enjoyed by all of us!
Technical Leader of Engineering at Cisco, Matt Norris
I had the pleasure of working with Stacee while taking business training. Stacee used public speaking, acting, and improv techniques to enhance our own personality and presentation skills; not create an artificial speaking "persona". Her approach was refreshing and highly effective.
IT Leader - ERP Integrations, GE, Anuj Raja
Stacee is a brilliant teacher and trainer helping us gain good skills to prepare a more powerful and comprehensive talk with emotion and passion that will get 100% attention of the audience…I have had many different trainers but never one with so much in depth knowledge but yet teaches and parts with their knowledge with utmost simplicity.
IT Leader - Enabling Technologies GE Industrial Finance, Mary Jo D’Angelis
I was lucky to spend three days with Stacee during a leadership training. She was amazing. I have already found myself using the skills she taught during regular business meetings and senior management updates. I feel more confident and am better at engaging the audience. I am a visual learner and find that I sometimes do not retain learnings. Stacee always coupled a lesson with a visual or a demonstration. She was easy to follow and really fun to work with. She put us through some uncomfortable situations, but was very respectful and supportive.
President & Wealth Advisor, Heron Financial Group | Wealth Advisors
I needed help introducing a new service of our wealth advisory firm - a digital advice platform. I had the concepts and the content down pat, but I was having trouble with the delivery. I needed to fix this shortcoming badly because we were filming the presentation for posting to thousands of people on social media.
I spent two hours workshopping the presentation with Stacee, trying out different styles and approaches until I felt 100% comfortable. In particular, Stacee showed me how to frame my pitch in terms of benefits to the audience. I then delivered what I believe is my best presentation ever!
Thank you, Stacee!
Commercial Excellence IT Leader - Process & Design at GE Healthcare, Rick Grubb
As a person deeply ensconced in the pressure cooker of the Corporate world, I am curious about the career choices and aspirations of individuals who have taken a different route. Stacee is one of the most fascinating people I have ever met - and she falls squarely in that category for me. At an Executive Training Session, Stacee ably led a group of Type-A, typically non-"creative" rule-followers and taught them to open up mentally and be free physically -- all in an effort to enhance our Executive Presence. Despite much reluctance, Stacee had full command of the room in minutes, taught us that it was ok to fail and led us to a place of performance, in spite of fear. I remember her lessons vividly a year later and use them right before I give a big pitch, or stand in front of a room. The simple methods she taught me are some of the best returning investments I've ever made. I will be forever indebted to her for her assistance and would recommend her without hesitation to others.
IT Leader - ERP Testing Center of Excellence (TCOE) at GE, Satish Mekerira
Stacee did a great job at observing and understanding the presentation styles of everyone in the group. She shared simple & effective tools/techniques to improve the flow of the content within presentations and taught ways to engage/connect with the audience. Stacee is very engaging and her high energy personality made the session fun too.
Director IT (CIO) at Kellogg Company, Viral Thakkar
Stacee worked with me and my group over 2 days to help us hone public speaking and presentation skills during a leadership training course. I found her very creative, energetic and effective at teaching us simple but powerful techniques that can make us better at this crucial skill. I benefited a lot from the sessions with her, and highly recommend her as a coach for improving public speaking & presentation skills
Technical Leader of Engineering at Cisco, Matt Norris
I had the pleasure of working with Stacee while taking business training. The training consisted of several courses, but Professional Speaking definitely stood out. Stacee...used public speaking, acting, and improv techniques to enhance our own personality and presentation skills; not create an artificial speaking "persona". Her approach was refreshing and highly effective.
Chief Executive Officer @ EverythingBenefits
Stacee coached me on the public speaking skills. It was hands down one of the best coaching experiences. Stacee's professional acting background and years of coaching expertise really helped in refining the best approaches on connecting with the audience. Highly recommended. Thank you!
Program Manager at Startup Institute, John Lynn
I hand-picked Stacee from a competitive pool of qualified presentation experts to participate as a mentor at Startup Institute, where she has helped our participants refine their stories and pitches Her ability to warmly and clearly guide her students towards effective pitches and stories make her impact immediate and motivating. Her expertise -- and ability to share it with eloquence and empathy -- equip everyone she works with the confidence and presence they deserve. I have trusted her to work with almost 100 of our top students, and cannot recommend her highly enough.
Digital marketer (technology, and social good) Alex Orgera
I learned more in a two hour workshop with Stacee than I did in an entire semester in a college public speaking course. Not only is she a master of her craft, her hands on approach to learning showed me exactly how to modify my pitch so that my message was clear and genuine. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to give a speech that really stands out.
EdTech Entrepreneur | Product Strategist | Data Scientist | Decision Architect, Josh McWillam
I attended a 2 hour workshop put on by Stacee and my view of the art and science of public speaking was forever changed for the better. No gimmicks or cheesy tactics like some of the advice you often see out there. Stacee was able to get to the root of what makes it takes to really communicate successfully with your audience and break it down into the actionable techniques needed to turn that knowledge into results. I highly recommend Red Leaf Coaching for anyone that wants to up their game on this critical skill.
Account Manager at Tufenkian Carpets, Gretchen Auer
I help run a small networking group for A&D professionals and we had the pleasure of having Stacee Mandeville as a featured guest presenter. Stacee was extremely engaging and was so enthusiastic about sharing tips for communicating better. I think everyone in the group really benefited from the workshop and I would wholeheartedly recommend hiring Stacee to coach your team.
