The Championship Communication workshop she did with our team was fantastic and serves as a continual touchpoint for our program."

Her dynamic presentation style is both informative and engaging and one that makes everyone in the room feel alive. Betsy can seamlessly transform the art of communication into many “Ah-ha’s” whether it be with a team of athletes or a group of executives"

Megan Kahn

Vice President of Women's Basketball at the Big Ten Conference

"I’m always looking for that 1% edge to get the best out of my team and we got that in working with Betsy. Her playing and coaching background facilitated an instant ease of connection with my players and staff. She’s the best listener I’ve encountered and was able to observe our practice and give real-time feedback without being a distraction. And by no means was this a one time workshop. She checks in throughout the season to see how I’m doing which shows the investment she’s made in myself and my program."

Tamara Inoue

Head Coach, UC Irvine Women’s Basketball

"Communication is one of the skills I truly value, and Betsy nailed how important this is to any relationship. Her tips were on point and she gave real-world examples we could relate to as coaches. I can’t wait to add some of her tools for connecting to our coaches’ and student-athletes’ toolbox!"
