As a veteran entrepreneur and executive, Freddi keeps the focus on practical, real-world objectives that turn everyday interactions into opportunities to advance business goals. What’s the best business networking approach for a given personality type? Which method of time and information management can complement a person’s behavior patterns and life experiences? How can a standout technician augment software expertise with the “soft skills” needed to manage people after – or in pursuit of – that big promotion? Through group and individual sessions, Freddi helps clients find these answers and leverage them for professional and personal success.
