"I had been through media training a few times before I was referred to Ann Convery, and felt comfortable speaking to groups and to the media. Working with Ann polished whatever skills I had and took my confidence and my delivery to a new level. With her help I can now comfortably speak without notes, and I can prepare a talk on very short notice and know that the audience will find me well prepared. In addition to being very professional, Ann Convery has a wonderful sense of humor that made our time together a delightful experience."

After leaving a PR firm that basically lied and stole money from us, Anthony and his team welcomed me with open arms, and a campaign which is second to none. Being an independent author and screen writer, I am blessed beyond belief to have such an amazing group of people, working to help make my dreams come true."
