Client Testimonials


Sandrina Devlopoulos, Chief Operating Officer
Gettry Marcus CPAs 

“Marla’s presentation skills training program was a great addition to the Gettry Marcus training initiative. Every session was well-received by our partners and staff.

She came prepared to each session with a specific goal in mind. The staff who attended her sessions were challenged and provided with various examples of how to develop their skills.

For the one-on-one training, Marla took the time to understand each participant and tailored the sessions to address their strengths and weaknesses. During each session, she guided those individuals to hone and improve their speaking skills.”

Dr. Rick Scher, President
Care Connection

“After participating in the excellent program Marla did for our business trade organization, I retained her services to help me and my marketing rep hone our skills in developing and delivering effective sales and educational presentations. Not only were the classes enlightening, but she facilitated them with compassion and a light hearted approach so we felt comfortable and had fun in the process.

Her invaluable techniques and practice she gave us during the sessions heightened our confidence and furthered our ability to engage clients and referral sources successfully. The videotaping was a great tool so we could see what we needed to do to improve.

Since the training, we are able to prepare and deliver our presentations with ease. Our prospects are more interested in learning about us and using our home care services for their patients.”

Gettry Marcus, CPA P.C.

“Working with Marla was an excellent experience. I learned many different techniques to help improve my presentation and speaking skills. Some of the most rewarding were to speak slower allowing me to minimize filler words and use a change of voice/tone to keep my audience engaged. Thank you, Marla for opening my eyes as to how I was speaking.”

“I really enjoyed my coaching session with Marla, and I found it much more productive than I anticipated. She not only gave me new insight into the delivery of my presentations, but helped me with the content as well. Some of her methods, such as videotaping are keys to making me a better speaker. Her many skills, including acting and singing, were very helpful. I highly recommend Marla to anyone in need of self-improvement.”
