Nothing Says Success Like Happy Clients.

The Ethical Speaker is a great resource for CSP applicants


and anyone hoping to add professionalism to their speaking business. And you'll be surprised to find it's also an enjoyable read. Sprinkled with quotes from people you know, ranging from Zig Ziglar to Warren Buffet, each page pulls you along ... enjoyably.

This is not some theoretical tome. After more than three decades as an NSA professional, I recognized many of the situations in this book because I've faced them myself. When it comes down to it, you just can't argue with the wisdom of such pithy advice as asking yourself what your hero would do, and then doing exactly that. This makes the ethical mission easy to embrace. We all want to do the right thing. The Ethical Speaker offers a super simple solution to figuring out just what that is.”

Possesses a very positive attitude…


"I was very impressed with Dr. Margarita Gurri, she was definitely a crowd pleaser. She had relevant information, and spiced it up with anecdotes and video. Laughter is definitely healing, and with the different scenarios experienced by our members and families, I believe they all were touched by her presentation. Reintegration is very important to families, and members. I see much upheaval during this process. Having eyes opened to the fact that it is not a honeymoon period, but a difficult time for some, puts the families and members at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Gurri for future events. She possesses a very positive attitude that is contagious! This helps to get the program off on the right foot, and encourages members to attend her break out sessions.

The kids really open up…


"I have seen Dr Gurri (cadre of speaker family counselor) do a session with the kids to discuss their fears and anger for deployments; parents were invited to come up and join their kids for these sessions. The childcare provider facilitated the time for each age group. As a group, the kids really open up and the parents were thankful to open the discussion up and hear what their children thought or feared. The kids seemed relieved that other kids were experiencing the same fears."

Avoid many potential conflicts…


As a government official, I used to frequently struggle with managing conflicts, both internal and external to the organization. I had almost lost hope when I decided to contact Dr. Margarita for coaching. She guided me to identify and focus on my strengths and to recognize and control my weaknesses. A better understanding of myself, in conjunction with useful techniques Dr. Margarita taught me, enabled me to avoid many potential conflicts and better manage the inevitable conflicts with subordinates, other managers, and constituent businesses. One-on-one coaching from Dr. Margarita provided a positive return on my investment by enabling me to shape my future as a manager. I am confident that she would be similarly effective in a group setting.
