All in all, it was a very positive experience for our group.” Conference Coordinator (The World Bank)

Your delightful personality and enthusiasm made us want to build a team that can turn work into fun and focus energy in creative ways.”  Retreat Coordinator (Commonwealth of Virginia Senate)

“I’ve been to about 200 of these training programs over the years in my three careers and this is the best one yet, thank you for such a good day.”  Attendee, Norfolk, VA

“Thank you for providing the IBM Finance team with such fun ideas for teambuilding exercises. The activities were a hit and I think the teams really bonded throughout the exercises. The Big Blue Bounce had them all rolling with laughter by the end. We could not have had such a successful event without your exciting ideas.”     Operations Coordinator (IBM Global Services)

“I’ve known Gaia for nearly 30 years and I highly recommend her for any presentation where you would like the attendees to have so much fun learning that they don’t realize they’re learning! I’ve hired her a multitude of times. You need only to hear one of her presentations to know she’s loves what she teaches, and utterly enjoys life!”   Program Manager (HQ Dept. of Army) 

“Your presentation was dynamic and entertaining. Everyone was on a high for the next day and a half. Your enthusiasm is powerful! The tips and techniques you shared with us were very beneficial to us in our ever so hectic business.” State President, Women’s Council of Realtors

“Your energy is boundless. Staff evaluations said repeatedly that you demonstrated outstanding enthusiasm: Gaia is very energetic and personable. She is in a career that fits her personality and this made the training enjoyable. Presented useful information in an entertaining format with good group participation – generated lots of group energy. Thanks for a wonderful program and sharing your insights and humor.” HR Development Specialist, Delaware Dept. of Labor

“Thanks a million for spending time on the phone with me yesterday, you are incredible! Your gift of time alone will come back to you multiplied over and over. Your card was a nice “pick me up”. I was reminded about how I never have had enough income to do anything I WANT to do and at almost 60 and have GOT to change my plan. I look forward to that with the cards.” New NC Business Owner

”Well – that proves this greeting card system is amazing. It was less than 24 hours before one of my first cards I sent was in a frame and sitting on somebody’s desk. Awesome!”  California Business Owner

“This card business really cheers me up. I did not count on such a generosity from the leadership that I’ve experienced. I know that if it is to be, it is up to me. I believe it is to be. Thank you so much for your kindness and support.” Canadian Business Owner

I would like to say thank you and commend you on our recent staff retreat. Many of our staff commented “Gaia was wonderful – bring her back!” The evaluations prove that your facilitation styles and techniques are among the best our company has utilized. It is difficult to find someone with such caliber and organizational abilities as yourself. The entire PDC staff realizes that the retreat is successful because you serve as the liaison between our staff and management.”  President, PDC Multimedia Productions, Inc.
