"Annie was wonderful, she really nailed modeling throughout the session how all the different facets of tone affect people and the environment. This was the session that finally brought home the fact that a facilitator can manipulate and influence a meeting with tone." A Participant in a recent workshop.

"Annie's talent and vitality exude from her. She did a fabulous job modeling how to use your voice and emotion to communicate in an effective way especially-when you are trying to jump through a little square on a zoom screen. Our 21/64 Art of Facilitation participants wanted even more time with Annie!"

From the 21/64 workshop
"I would've liked to have had two full hours with Annie working on this. Super interesting and helpful. More time with Annie and the Power of Voice."
"Annie's presentation on how our bodies impact our voices and High Presence opened my eyes to many things about how I facilitate meetings, trainings, planned events and unplanned. There is a lot of of substance to these topics that I will be spending a lot of time exploring and practicing with intention."

Annie Meisels dynamic, high energy workshop was an energetic start to our faculty orientation week. She infused her own acting and coaching experience to create a custom learning opportunity for our community, full of interactive activities to stimulate discussion and growth.

Thank you so much, Annie! It was extremely insightful and made me more aware of what type of listener I am. Also, the tips on how to grab the attention of my listeners. I truly appreciated your time today!

"In preparing for a TV and public speaking engagement, I sought out Annie's expertise in public speaking and presentation. She was extremely helpful and insightful. Her advise and techniques were instrumental in creating a confident and thorough presentation style on camera, and in front of large audiences. Conquering a medium I'm not used to was a challenge, and Annie was a tremendous help. I plan on working with her again!"

I worked with Annie over multiple sessions to prepare for a variety of speaking performances. Short story is, I can't recommend her enough. She has both fundamental, tactical knowledge and experience that she passes on to you, but she also understands the emotional component and helps you reach a level of performance you likely didn't know you had. I can say with confidence that my performances were significantly better because of Annie.
