I highly recommend Leah’s “Outclass the Competition” workshop for all mid-level and senior leaders. Leah’s workshop is a critical component in the Midwest Senior Service College Fellowship, which develops strong, effective leaders for the Defense Department acquisition workforce.

Leah is not just an expert in everything from introductions to handshakes to dining etiquette to clothing . . . she’s a great teacher who helps every individual in the room become better.

Our year-long Fellowship Program develops strategic global leaders and it is obvious that Leah’s program is a perfect match for us . . . but everyone can benefit from even a short seminar on presentation skills or social interaction. Thank you, Leah!

I had the honour and priveledge to study under the professional training program Ms. Leah Hawthorn presented. Her Image Coaching and recommended styles really worked for me—surely the best Image Coach I have studied under. I would strongly recommend Ms. Hawthorn to any individual or enterprise who is looking for an Image coach who can provide them with a cutting edge were Image Coaching is concerned.

I had an opportunity to meet Leah about couple of months ago and I knew right away that she would be an excellent guest speaker for North Dayton Professional Networking Group (NDPN). On November 17th, Leah gave an outstanding presentation for NDPN touching some of the key areas on how to distinguish yourself from the competition by making an eye contact, the way you shake hands, the way you introduce yourself, your posture, your people skills etc.

Leah is committed to excellence in all that she does and with her background, drive, and personable skills, makes her an exceptional speaker for any professional group or organization. She has tremendous source of knowledge, she is not only efficient and enthusiastic with her work, she also is incredibly inquisitive in exploring new ways she can put her vast knowledge and skills to work best for either a group or for an individual person. I would recommend Leah in a heartbeat. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value

WOW are the letters that come to mind regarding Leah Hawthorn . . . Woman of Wisdom! Leah certainly has the class and knowledge to offer training on business etiquette and image. She is phenomenal! You’ll want to have her as your next speaker. She is engaging and has so much information to offer and offers it in a FUN but LEARNING atmosphere. I recently experienced her dining tutorial “Dine Like a Diplomat” and it was great! I learned a great deal and it has stayed with me; now as I am dining, Leah’s words pop into my head! Wow . . . that is making an impression.

I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to come to the Juvenile Court to teach my girls group etiquette. I know this is normally not something you do, but it meant a lot to me and the girls. We discussed how much they enjoyed the class after you left.

They said:
“I learned a lot of new things about manners.”
“I now know what to do when I go somewhere nice.”

Again, thank you for everything that you did for the girls at the Juvenile Court.
