“Rita Schiano is an excellent facilitator. We appreciated her approach of shaping the two-day professional development and team building based on an initial needs assessment to design a professional development plan appropriate to our needs and expectations. She was engaging and the activities and information was relevant and useful. Our team continues to draw from that two day development experience!” ~ Karen-Louise Rucks, Th.D., Executive Director of Advancement, Quinsigamond Community College
Rita appeals to a wide variety of audiences, delivering results-driven information and insights drawn from her experiences as a resilience strategist, professor, and business owner. Her desire to “entertain, motivate, inspire, and educate” has been the consistent thread and persistent driving force in her professional (and personal) life.
Your audience leaves energized, entertained, educated, and alive with possibilities. (Want to know who hires Rita? Check out her Client List)
