"Leigh Ann's presentation was great on informing our local home inspectors on the differences between arbitration and mediation. Her information encourages them to review their contracts and look into these other options besides litigation to resolve future conflicts."
Program Director of Central TN InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors)

Taking care of yourself and checking in with others are also right on target. I also very much liked your insight on Mentoring in our profession. Keep it coming and Thanks Again!!"

"Leigh Ann was awesome! We all learned alot and I hope to have her come back to speak to our group in the future. Thanks again."
President, Women's Council Of Realtors
"Leigh Ann gave an interesting and informative presentation to the Nashville Women's Council. We know that litigation is an expensive way to resolve disputes for real estate matters, divorce and many other issues. Leigh Ann explained how mediation is a more cost effective, efficient, and flexible way to handle conflicts. In addition, we learned that 40 to 60% of a typical manager's time is spent resolving conflicts. Imagine what mediation could save to a typical corporation's bottom line."
