Very Grateful for Our Partners

Dennis SprenkleVice President, Human Resources and Administration at Inter Miami CF

We hired Chris (Empowering Voices, Inc) to lead several training development sessions for our front office staff. Afterwards, the feedback from the training was overwhelmingly positive. Most importantly, our employees thought that the training was valuable in helping them grow as professionals. They all felt like Chris sincerely cared about their success and they recommended that we bring him back again in the future.


Such a deep knowledge of finance, and yet it was still VERY engaging!

Chris was the absolute best trainer I have ever had in my career.  Deep knowledge and SO engaging.  Great!! Chris knows his stuff and it shows in how he is able to concisely and effectively teach.

The engaging style of facilitation increases the energy in the room and inspires learning!  Our folks not only enjoyed the course but appreciated Chris’ business knowledge. We would request him by name for our upcoming sessions.

Randy KrugHormel Foods

Chris really made learning about business acumen easy and enjoyable.  His depth and breadth of knowledge on the subject combined with his engaging style and relevant examples made for a productive and memorable day.  As we plan our next session, we look forward to having Chris with us again.

Lauren SandersManufacturing Lead – Milliken

The Milliken Specialty Fabrics finance group was extremely pleased with the quality of Chris’ facilitation skills and energetic style. The group stayed very engaged for the entire training course, and each participant gave Chris the highest ratings on the facilitation questions.  I received very positive feedback from the group as to how much knowledge they took away from the training as well as how much fun it was.  It would be a pleasure to work with Chris again at Milliken and we would welcome him back!

Chris is excellent – knowledgeable, engaging and made fairly complex ideas easy to understand. High energy and very knowledgeable!

We asked Chris to facilitate ALL of our sessions for our sales leaders in 2014.

James KievitProfessor, National Security Leadership - Center for Strategic Leadership and Development

By the end of workshop Chris had our ‘rookies’ ready and confident to face – and facilitate – that future seminar and he had also taught even this ‘old dog’ (who after 14+ years facilitating thought that he was not too bad at it) more than a few ‘new tricks.

Chris was engaging from the first minute, and created an energizing and impactful learning environment for our participants.  His unique background allows him to relate to people from businesses small and large with credibility and professionalism.  I would definitely recommend Chris for future workshops.

Speaker CoordinatorMaking It Count Programs

Chris makes a so-called “boring presentation” into an eventful and fun learning experience.  He has the ability to motivate his audience through exceptional stories and hands-on experiences to inspire others to become better leaders and speakers.

Chris has returned to Westar Energy over several years … because he consistently keeps the group engaged through quality facilitation techniques and an interactive style.

(Chris) is very knowledgeable without being pompous, creating an approachable and comfortable learning environment.

COL John MaukUS Army War College

Chris spent the time to understand our unique needs and tailored his training to maximize value to my staff with two days of focused training and practical exercises.  (Empowering Voices, Inc.) product is a real value, providing effective training in a compressed timeframe making precious time away from the mission both manageable and cost effective.

Chris is truly able to make a rainy afternoon at an accounting firm educational, and FUN!!  After 4 hours our group was still hanging on every word…Great job!

Amy HollenkampOrganizational Capability Manager - CDW

Here at CDW we always find value in sessions with Chris and our leadership members. Over our 5+ years working together Chris has always taken the time to know the business, listen to changes in the way we report or talk about our financials and adapt his messaging and lessons accordingly. The most common comment after a session from our leaders is that they didn’t realize how fun and approachable financial acumen could be until taking the time to make it relatable in the game based content.
