Margy Schaller, Laser Pointer, President

All of us have a natural communication style; the trick is to learn what that is and own it. 
Rather than telling us to “get out of our comfort zone” with some new communication fad, Margy Schaller will focus on the natural styles and skills we each possess. She taps into heart knowledge rather than just head knowledge. Margy has the rare ability to deliver Instruction, Inspiration and Results with contagious enthusiasm.
