Gwen is a consummate professional, with a great mix of skills to execute on many different fronts. She moves easily from one area of expertise to another, be it writing, health policy or strategic planning. It was a great pleasure working with Gwen. When she gets a goal in her sights, she rarely misses. Above all else, her passion for the important things in life is extremely contagious.

Manager, FDA Programs at Abiomed
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.
