Thank you for the wonderful presentation “Communicating For Positive Results." The entire staff felt that the seminar was informative, funny and full of useful information.

MEDINA MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
Medina Memorial Health Care System recently engaged Mrs. Skiffington to provide some educational programs to both our management team and front line staff. Her topics centered on communication, change and telephone skills. She did an outstanding job in the issues that face health care today. Her presenting style was also very desirable as she made it more of a participatory type of class. I would like to take this time to commend Mrs. Skiffington for the outstanding job that she did here at Medina Memorial Health Care System.

I would like to take this opportunity to yet again thank you ever so much for “shining” so brightly at our Western New York Career Opportunities & Development Conference. Your contribution was such an integral component to the success of those workshops that I just had to share with you the expressions from the participants.
Mary Quinn, Diversity Development Specialist
United States Postal Service
I can’t thank you enough for your upbeat and timely presentation to our branch sales force. As I told you at the time, usually by 2pm they are nodding off at the thought of “one more speaker." After your remarks there was not a sleepy eye in the room and all there were totally re-energized as you made them realize that you had been there, felt their pain, but always found a way to turn lemons into lemonade.
Dennis Farrell, Senior Vice President and District Executive
SISTERS OF CHARITY HOSPITAL
Thank you so very much for being part of Nurses Week at Sisters of Charity Hospital. Your program, “The Balancing Act to Stress Management” was very well received by all who attended. We had more than 200 nurses attend and more than 60 received a copy of your book. I’ve heard many very positive comments from many who attended. I especially want to thank you for tailoring your program to fit our “24 hour” schedule here at Sisters Hospital. Your willingness to provide six 30-minute sessions, even at 1:00 am, made it possible for the maximum number of nurses to attend. I would highly recommend you, Jeannie, to my colleagues!

JAMESTOWN COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Thank you so much for presenting such a wonderful program at the Jamestown Community College Women’s Expo. We are in our fifth year of this program, and it just keeps getting better. We couldn’t have pulled this off without you! Both your keynote session “Walk theTalk with Winning Ways” and your closing session “Winning is Contagious: Pass It On!” were very uplifting and funny at the same time. A particular highlight of the day was the fact that you interacted and networked with the participants. Our past keynotes usually disappear until the closing session, and we are truly grateful you participated in the whole day and were able to speak to the participants one-on-one. You truly exceeded my expectations. It is such a pleasure to work with you.

JAMESTOWN COMMUNITY COLLEGE SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER
Thanks for your presentation, “10 Steps to Successful Selling." You were rated well informed on the subject matter, participants thought the class was worth their time and money, AND they would recommend you to a friend or co-worker. When we want to present a program in customer service or selling, I know that you’re the “slam dunk." I know the participants will be extremely pleased with the experience and of course it’s reassuring to work with a speaker who is articulate, reliable, and thorough.
