“My introduction to Liz was during a Multipliers Workshop in 2011. Her ability to guide an audience through a personal journey of capability and opportunity in unmatched. She is passionate about all of her pursuits, and one of the most kind and focused individuals I have ever met. When you speak with Liz, even in a crowd of people, she makes you feel as if you're the only person in room. That is a gift. I've often wondered what the world could look like if, as her book suggests for businesses, people operated more like Multipliers. Any business, large or small, would benefit from inviting Liz or her team of talented practitioners to share what it takes to lead like a Multiplier.”

“I first met Liz when she presented at the inaugural Silicon Slopes Technology Summit in Utah. Liz is a fantastic presenter and a bestselling author. I love her work and highly recommend her as a speaker, coach, and author. She brings amazing insight and experience, but still approaches life with humility and a passion for learning. Liz has a contagious, positive attitude and personality.”
“I'd like to extend this recommendation for Liz and the "Multipliers" workshop she's created. I had the pleasure working with Liz in 2012 and the workshop is by far the best one I've seen in the market. Not only does it focus on practical leadership skills that can be implemented the following day, but it also involves the group at all times, making it highly interactive. Our executive team have been thrilled with the concepts, and we're currently implementing the "Multipliers" principles throughout the organization. On a personal level, Liz is a person that connects well with all individuals, and she manages to bring out the best intelligence in all groups. She's an amazing human being and it's truly a pleasure being around her, getting inspired by her intellectual curiosity and leadership ideas. I'd recommend Liz and the workshops created by the Wiseman Group to all organizations looking to improve leadership skills. You'll have a hard time finding workshops with better ROI's out there, and with such a practical focus to create lasting change!”
