THE STORY:Progressive Techniques, Inc. was founded in 1996 when I left my corporate job to launch myself in the world of entrepreneurship. As a former Dale Carnegie Instructor and adjunct faculty instructor for Georgia State University, that background provided for a great launching pad for training and speaking. The journey has been amazing, with so many lessons along the way and the growing of my faith like never before. Speaking to audiences with transparency and authenticity allows me to engage with my audiences very quickly. Sharing lessons learned and how I have overcome challenges propels and helps others to know they can do the same. When attendees see the potential, the “AHA!” moments occur, and people take that step to becoming their best selves, it is so rewarding.
