I remember the first time I had to present to a group after the Peggy Klaus training….As I started to speak, I felt the passion I had for the job come shining through and everything just flowed.

Hal Marz, University Programs; Google, Inc.

Peggy’s workshops transform women from being hesitant to talk about their accomplishments and goals to being masters of self-promotion. She generates high energy and good will among the most timid or doubting of participants, melting their reluctance into comfort and excitement to be communicating about their talents. Peggy wows everyone in the room every time, including me.

Betty Spence Ph.D, President; National Association for Female Executives (NAFE)
Peggy is a terrific resource for anyone looking to hone their communication skills and style.  She has a gift for simplifying the the task at hand, and offering an easily executable strategy to take to the podium.
David Kulik, Vice Mayor, Town of Tiburon, CA

Working with Peggy is a really fun and enjoyable way to gain the confidence and critical skills you need to be your best. She tackles those very difficult traits and habits that are stalling and/or derailing you, but she is able to do it in a wonderfully supportive, non-judgmental and non-offensive manner.

Jamie Kramer, Managing Director, JP Morgan

Peggy is the most inspirational and dynamic coach I have ever worked with. Her expertise enables her clients to take ‘Executive Presence’ to another level while still being themselves. Her enthusiasm and knowledge permeates throughout her sessions.

Lynn Carfora, Founder, Talent Capital Resource Group

I can attest to the fact that even the most cynical of audiences will be entertained, engaged, and challenged during Peggy’s presentation.

Patty Doerr, Global Head, Corporate Responsibility & Inclusion; Thomas Reuters

Working with Peggy is a wonderful experience. Her energy, candor and vision helped transform my Executive Presence.

Geoff Walker, SVP Marketing, Wheels, Games and Youth Electronics; Mattel, Inc.

While working with Peggy, she had a laser like focus helping me to define my personal career goals. Her warm, and inviting style instantly put me at ease and created a safe space for me to discuss and set real career milestones and allowed me to easily track my progress. Since I started coaching in 2006, Peggy has become one of my dear trusted friends and mentors, and her understanding of my strengths and areas of growth has lead her to be my career “true north”. Her approach does not just offer the standard advice or try to make her clients fit a mold, but rather she helps her clients find their own authentic voice and style.

As a woman of color, Peggy has been a tireless champion of helping me (and so many others) break through the often, double glass ceiling faced by people of color in the corporate workplace. Her writing on the challenges of bringing true diversity into the corporate sphere have been both insightful and inspiring.

Karla Martin, Head, Retail Business Development and Innovation (interim); Shopkick; Former Director, Global Business Strategy and Strategic Planning; Google

Peggy has been a phenomenal coach to me and my team. She’s insightful, passionate and always finds tangible ways to help ‘unlock’ what’s holding us back from that highest level of performance. I love Peggy’s approach to coaching!

Bill Chandler, Founder; Chandler Public Affairs

Working with Peggy completely changed the way I think about presenting myself. Her career transition coaching identified the key areas in my professional profile that needed to be adjusted, allowing me to see my career achievements through the lens of my target audience. It has made all the difference!

Greg Parry, Parry Arts Consulting

“Simply put, Peggy is world-class. Her keen insights and high energy combine to make her one of, if not THE best executive coaches working today. She owns the room, engaging and inspiring the most senior executives who have been-there, done-that — they always walk away energized and ready to tackle their biggest challenges after Peggy’s workshops. Peggy is an absolute treasure, and it’s been a privilege and joy to work with her to bring her executive coaching workshops to the leading women in business.”


Lesley Grossblatt

I’ve seen Peggy change more lives in 90 minutes than any other speaker.

Rayona Sharpnack, Founder & CEO; Institute for Women’s Leadership

I sought presentation coaching from Peggy while fundraising for my startup. Not only did she help me with the skills to successfully raise a seed round of capital, she provided me with the confidence and expertise to improve my communication in all professional situations.

Shea Tate-Di Donna, Founder & CEO; Zana

If you’re serious about improving your speaking, Peggy is the best in the business.

Bart Chilton, Former US Trading Commissioner

My success as a leader is the result of two things: hard work and Peggy’s coaching. Her experience, insights, guidance and practical tips were crucial both in making me a better boss, colleague and mentor, and in propelling my career forward. In the spirit of ‘paying it forward,’ I now pass her wisdom on to my team so they too can be successful leaders.

Dan Eddleman, Vice President, Large Group Account Management and Labor & Trust Funds; Kaiser Permanente

Peggy worked with my senior marketing and salespeople and I have never seen them as engaged and attentive as they were during her workshop. The results were amazing—every person made significant improvements in just one day. We can’t wait to have her back!

Katie Kulik, SVP Media Services; CBS Interactive

Quite simply, Peggy makes a difference with everyone she works with, and those who are lucky enough to work with her come away with invaluable learning and tips.

Dan Henkle, President; Gap Foundation; SVP, Global Sustainability; Gap Inc.
