Sandra Zimmer Testimonials

Karen Thompson, Communication Specialist

The Zimmer Method is still a complete surprise to me. You made it so easy to move from intimidation and outright terror to warm openness and comfort before an audience that I scarcely know what happened. You coaxed us into amazing encounters with ourselves in a safe and positive environment. I find that I am much more comfortable communicating with people in any setting because I am more connected with myself.

Tonica Pool, Mechanical Engineer

I got up and spoke in front of 300 people at least 5 times during a 3-day workshop! Three people told me that they can hear my heart and Soul speaking when I spoke. Short, precise, and very profound and heart-felt! Even the instructor said, "WOW! Give her a hand! And then he elaborated on how what I said was so profound and wise. And said, "Tonica, can I hire you to come and speak with me at these events?" In front of the whole room I laughed to myself.... and said, "Thank you, Sandra!" 🙂

Jennifer, Trial Attorney

As a lawyer with over 20 years of experience, I was not particularly concerned about “stage fright”. I wanted to improve my ability to command attention in the courtroom and be a more effective advocate. I wasn’t sure the weekend workshop would help me. How wrong I was! I was able to put the workshop lessons to use the following week in court. I did not prepare as I have for 20 years. I used Sandra’s method instead. I was so much more effective and engaging. And the best part of all, it felt effortless! Thank you!

Brian Gillen, Fund Raiser for Non-Profits

When I failed to land my dream job, I came to Sandra after having a series of unsuccessful interviews with different organizations for positions that I thought I was well qualified for. She immediately picked up on the fact that I might be able to recover from an unsuccessful interview and go after my dream job. Sandra helped me craft my message and helped me rehearse delivering it more effectively. As a result of her private tutoring, I was able to improve my skills and land the dream job I thought I had lost.

Maura Dunn, COO and Chief HSE Officer

Thank you for your efforts with the KBR team over the last few days. You really had a job to do! Somehow, through your own style, you calmed everyone’s nerves and gave them confidence to reach beyond what they thought they could do. In some cases, you were nothing short of a miracle worker.

Bill Bailey, Architect

I asked the project selection panel if we could sit at the table with them instead of doing a standup power point. The panel agreed and made room at the table. I sat down at the table and went into the zone you talked about in class. I never left the zone! It was amazing! Neither I nor anyone else from my company in that room has ever experienced that kind of interview process. It was unparalleled. One hour after the presentation was over, the client called to say we had the job. You made me shine! In front of the client and in front of my new boss! Thank you Sandra from my heart!

Rob Longenecker, Business Owner

I have had a lot of experience speaking to groups. I thought I was well-trained and effective. Little did I know! I have a whole new way of interacting with audiences with inner calm and presence. I can actually be with people in a way that invites their engagement and participation at a whole new level. I am no longer concerned with how I look or “doing it right.” The attention on my performance is minimal and my attention on my audience is paramount. The result is that both my audience and I have a whole lot more fun and get related quickly.
