  • Joe Mirocke
    Ginny was a fantastic presenter and offered us practical changes we can make in our everyday process that make an impact on our Executive Presence. I went into this session thinking it would be "common sense" but I quickly discovered that I absolutely needed a refresher course in communication etiquette. This session should be required for every new Financial Advisor!

You have greatly impressed all who met you and were privileged to interact with you.Thank you, again, for your generosity and leadership. It made a difference for me.  I not only will be using what I learned, I will be sharing it with others.

  • Kathleen Bilderback
    The Executive Presence program was fun and took direct aim at a problem that is facing every company hiring young executives.  There is an entire generation of young lawyers, and incredibly sharp professionals, that aren’t dressing appropriately and aren’t behaving in a refined manner. Typically this is because they simply don’t understand the criterion they are being judged by. Even if you’re a master at something, you can always learn more. I emphatically recommend ‘The Executive Presence Program’ at Your Executive Image, LLC.”

    Ginny's expertise was clear from the moment we sat down. Her philosophy of moving from the anxious guest to the
    'Welcoming Host' is central to her message. Her advice was very actionable by our people. They could quickly comprehend and execute on her valuable instruction. I am certain our staff at Deloitte will be more effective in reaching business contacts and nurturing vital relationships.

  • Connie Huck, President
    Recently I had the pleasure of working with Ginny Baldridge, Your Executive lmage, LLC. to help transition into my new role as President of Kent Precision Foods Group, lnc. We all know “the details matter". However, up to this point in my career I applied all my energy into making sure I got the details right for the customer. I never thought of myself as one of the details. After a few coaching sessions, I realized I was a very important detail for the customers and now for the employees. My executive presence set the tone, provided reassurance and confidence to all individuals around me. Ginny assisted me with one-on one coaching. She is truly remarkable in her professionalism, knowledge of her subject and her passion and energy she displays in her work. I have no hesitation in recommending her for any assignment she is considered for.

    I LOVED this session, even though none of us realize we become complacent in certain areas as we go through our day-to-day routine. Ginny's talk reminded me of how our clients hold us to high esteem and I should remember to always help my colleagues in our office - from my appearance to the office's appearance and that I am representing our non-profit.
