Ally Tubis, VP, Data Science
Bespoken showed me that public speaking is a craft that can be perfected with practice. Leah was always there for me, and provided strategies for me to be successful even after our sessions. She just wants her clients to succeed and to support them in anyway they need. Having her support in preparing verbally, physically and emotionally for the presentation was a better experience than I could have imagined and I highly recommend working with Leah.
Anna Nerezova, Analyst, Performance and Optimization
The best career move I've ever made is to work together with the brilliant Leah Bonvissuto. It's been so inspiring and rewarding to unlock the keys to delivering powerful presentations and mastering public speaking. The sessions and time I spent with Leah were truly priceless.
Brian Schechter, CEO
Leah turbo-charged our team's focus and enthusiasm while giving them concrete tips on how to make every interaction with customers count. The team is raving about their experience, standing tall, speaking powerfully and connecting with each other in new ways.
I hired Leah to come in and help us become confident and efficient communicators and I got more than I bargained for! I had an amazing experience, as did my team. We blew out our monthly goal for the first time since we opened!

The confidence I have now for print and video interviews compared to prior to working with Jackie is really invaluable.
