“Liana has been one of my favorite clients over the past couple of years. I’ve traveled with her, I’ve worked with her on her live events, I’ve produced slides for her in one day as she had a talk the very next day. She embodies emotion and passion and when I initially saw her slides – oh boy they were a hot mess. I worked with her to get her presentation up to the level to match her brilliance. Her expression, her confidence, and her effectiveness changed overnight.”
“Hello, ladies and gentlemen, my name is Liana Chaoli and I’m the proud owner, founder and super creator, super, super, super creator image therapist, international, actually, I’m the creator of all of this content yet the people who can actually put the content that’s in my head and the vision that I have in my head onto a slide so that when I do a presentation, it comes to life the same way that it comes to life in my world. Those are the people that are the magicians. And to tell you the truth. I don’t know a lot of people like that. I do know Brigette Callahan and she has been one of the most profoundly giving gifts, meaning her talent and what she has done for me has been one of the most freeing and elevating things that I could tell you about as a speaker, as a presenter, as a storyteller, and I’m coming to you from different angles, you know, I mean, I’m wanting to share this with you from a place of, you know, how you put on a pair of pants.
So in my world, as an image therapist, it’s like, if something is uncomfortable to you, it shows up in your face, slides are the exact, they have such a power, that exact same thing. So when your slides show up before you do like an outfit shows up before you do, or something is uncomfortable, the presenter loses the audience. And for me, that was always a freak out until I met Brigette. And I have so many stories to tell you, but the thing that I really want to share with you is that she has saved my sanity in so many ways. And I’m talking to you as someone who goes around the world and speaks at all kinds of different events from 5,000 people to 50 people in the room. And no matter where I’m speaking, what’s really the most important for me is that my message gets conveyed in the PowerPoint.
Imagine you’re speaking to 5,000 people, 200 people, and the PowerPoint is so convoluted, which is what happens for most people. My life was like that my PowerPoints were so constructed in a way that was too much, too busy, not handsome, not beautiful, not a flow. So it didn’t tell the story on its own. And I felt like I had to talk faster and more in order to get people to understand my message after Brigette there’s before Brigette. And then there’s after Brigette, after Brigette, it’s almost like I just have to do a click. And she tells you don’t click that too fast. Don’t do this too fast. There’s a whole psychology behind it. So I dunno, what can I tell you? I could be here for hours telling you about the magic of Brigid’s talents and it’s not just her talent. It’s the way she comes to the table to harness all of who you are, get it into the PowerPoint and be there in person to support you that when you’re thinking about a person and that slide is not in your deck in about four seconds, she’s got the slide, she retrieves it.
She puts it onto your PowerPoint and boom, before you know it, that person’s space is up on the wall and you don’t know how it got there. So for me, it’s totally magic. And actually it’s not magic because all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask her to come and support you. So thank you, Brigette, for everything that you’ve done for me and everything that we’re going to be doing together, it’s been a lifesaver. It gives me strength to continue in a very grounded manner, not to be nervous and to always know that you have my back is very powerful. I love you. Thank you.”
