• One day, an email from The Whole Person Project landed in my email and was so interesting, that I reached out to my managers to see if the name Ann Butera meant anything to them. Quickly, two managers told me that they had seen her present at the annual ACUA , each attending a seminar on a different topic. They found her to be an enthusiastic, knowledgeable presenter and recommended we pursue Butera for a staff retreat.
    I called Butera and we quickly were in agreement as to the focus of a retreat. She actively listened to my needs and over a few follow-up calls, I knew TWPP, with Butera in charge, was going to help me unite a staff spread across three campuses in a vision for our future.
    Then came COVID-19, an April in-person retreat got postponed, then postponed again. In August, we decided we would hold the retreat via Zoom. It was perfect! Butera was masterful in delivering her comments, monitoring and engaging all staff, breaking us out into small groups. In the end, we accomplished exactly what we had hoped to do. And the best testimonial is that staff evaluations were extremely high! Everyone found the retreat exciting, felt valued and learned new things.
    I found Ann Butera and The Whole Person Project were quick to understand my needs, carefully listened and presented a retreat that was spot on in meeting our needs. Butera is a vibrant professional who charges up the energy in her sessions.

  • My company has worked with Ann and The Whole Person Project for many years and they consistently provide high quality, engaging, and value added audit training. We recently held a two-day presentation skills training and it was excellent. The sessions were completely virtual and the transition from our traditional in-person training approach was seamless. The content was tailored to meet our evolving needs in a remote environment and was delivered in a practical and interactive manner. Feedback from our audit staff was overwhelmingly positive and they are looking forward to future virtual sessions. I highly recommend working with Ann and her team to customize a virtual session that will meet your training needs.

  • Ann did a fantastic job of pivoting with our team on a training session that was originally designed for an in-person format to a Web-Based Live session during the COVID disruption. She was able to design interactive elements that allowed people to engage as if they were in person together but in a virtual environment. Over the 8 hour course, people were interacting, listening, and fully engaged - not distracted by their home environment or passively listening to a lecture. I am thankful for her creative partnership and willingness to work with us on something that was impactful for our team and necessary for the times.

  • From all the feedback that I received, you were the hit of the week. Everyone was especially keyed in on your auditing experience and how you related that to your discussion. I am sure we will definitely have an opportunity to work together again.

    Mike Nelson, IT Audit Manager

  • Very first time hearing Ann speak. She was excellent! I would highly recommend her for anyone. She is a great speaker and conveys her passion for speaking and topics to the audience.

  • I hope I get the opportunity to attend one of your seminars again. I think you're one of the best presenters I've had over the years. You're very knowledgeable, great at what you do, and lots of fun too.
