It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Gwen Mayes as a patient coach for speaking engagements and work with advocacy groups who engage with patients who are speaking in public. I was fortunate to work with Gwen in my very first speaking engagement. I was nervous and apprehensive to talk about my experience as a cardiac patient. Our stories are so very personal and at times so raw that we can be over whelmed about what we should and shouldn’t include in our speech. With her guidance, support and enthusiasm I was able to confidently sail through my speech. So much so that at the end I was sad it went so quickly! I have, absolutely no reservation in offering my highest recommendation of Gwen Mayes. She will exceed expectations every time and serve as a great asset to not only your speaking engagement but to your confidence as well.
Starr Mirza
Philanthroper, Heart Disease Patient Advocate
I have had the great pleasure to know Gwen Mayes as our paths have crossed in women's health advocacy for the past few years. She is smart, articulate and generous with those who seek her counsel and much sought after guidance. Her extensive healthcare background gives her a unique perspective and knowledge base when it comes to seeking guidance with federal regulators and thought leaders in Washington DC. She is respected by her colleagues and business associates, and her sense of humor is superb. Lucky are those who are able to learn from her, work with her, and enjoy her keen mind and sharp wit.

Everyone Has a Story. Make Yours Memorable.
01.24.2020

Maybe it’s because I’m a storyteller that everyone I meet tells me they want to write a book. What they really want to do is write their life story. Maybe not all of it, but the unforgettable three or four events that have shaped their life. One reason I believe people want to tell their […]
