Testimonials

Monica added tremendous value to our learning program. She was an engaging presenter and made sure the learning incorporated the company values and culture. Participants really enjoyed her session on Personal Brand and learned some great skills they’ll be able to use throughout their careers.

Before our DiSC session, I questioned how our team of accountants would react to this training; would they be able to get something useful from the time we were spending? Our group is generally reserved, but Monica was able to bring out personalities in the group and facilitate a great discussion. One of our managers commented, “It was one of the best group activities we have done.” Our team members are now more thoughtful about different personalities when working on projects together. I would absolutely recommend Monica and The Playground Group to others. It was a great team building event.

Monica’s presentation on more effective tools for managing priorities to eliminate stress was outstanding! She engaged the whole group, and her warm personality made everyone feel at ease. We all battle with stress in our every day lives – she really helped us think through our individual stressors and how we can best manage those. I would highly recommend her workshop, and her as a presenter!
Kat Smith, Project Development, Nielsen
Just wanted to say that you were PHENOMENAL! I have heard nothing but comments about how great you were. Thank you for all of the diligence you put to our event.
Lori Hetterich, P&G
Monica is one of the most creative people I’ve met! She truly has her own ideas on what I thought were common topics. Her passion for what she does is readily apparent. She is one of the most innovative people who I’ve crossed paths with. Monica presented to a group of 130 women on work-life balance/stress management. She did an amazing job tailoring the presentation to meet the requested needs. Monica’s high values and care for others come across in her materials and presentation. The survey results of those in the session were outstanding! I recommend Monica without reservation.

I have heard Monica speak before and was very happy with her, so I had no hesitations when hiring her again for our 2014 Fall Conference. The presentation she did for us, The Art of Having a Nice Day, made us all think about the choices you have in your day-to-day life. Monica provided us with easy ways to get our stress levels under control, and we all enjoyed working in small groups and sharing our thoughts with each other. I would highly recommend this presentation to others. Monica’s very easy to work with, and I will use her services again.

I recently had Monica speak at an event for an admin community. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire planning process; and I would highly recommend her. Monica’s presentation was very engaging and interactive with the audience. She provided great tools to incorporate our bliss into our daily lives so that we can live each day happier. Our event scored very high on feedback because of Monica.
Naomi Humphreys, Sr.Administrative Assistant, P&G
Monica’s seminars develop those skills that we need to face the reality that we can not do it all – that for our own well-being, we need to find playful ways to “balance” everything. I walked out energized and ready to make changes in my life.
Sandra Winkle, North American Properties
When I first considered DiSC training for our Management team, I was worried it would be a cookie cutter approach that tried to fit individuals into 3 or 4 boxes. However, that was not our experience at all. DiSC training brought our team closer together and allowed us to understand the strengths and limitations of each member. I would absolutely recommend this training by The Playground Group because I have a much better understanding of my team and how each individual will process projects or problems. Knowing this makes us work more efficiently and effectively, and that’s good for business.
Andrew Schuster, President, Matandy Steel
Monica was the featured speaker at a team training day we presented to doctors and staff from about 10 offices. The goal of the day was to enhance employee involvement to allow optimal patient service. Monica was engaging and enthusiastic, and gave us a number of “take-home” points that could immediately impact our team performance.
Dr. Thomas Nye, Vision Source
We all thought you did a great job and you are one of the best facilitators we’ve ever had.
Denise Dyer, Phillips Edison & Co.
Monica has facilitated many high energy sessions with immediate take aways for Barnes Dennig. Our guests appreciated her fresh ideas and friendly, personable delivery. Monica’s events are a great opportunity to network and to learn how to “live in the little.” I recommend Monica and welcome her back for future events.
Melissa Brogan, Barnes Dennig
Great smile…..logical…..professional……humor….communicator are all words that I would use to describe Monica’s presentation. Monica’s topic has been covered by others but never in the way that makes so much logical sense and thus motivating. Along with presentation, she uses excellent props which again help communicate the message. Monica’s captiving personalty and communicating skills along with a complete understanding of her topic make her a home run everytime she makes a presentation. Others have learned from Monica and I strongly urge you to do the same thing.
Rich Arnold, Sharonville Chamber
The first time I met Monica I was extremely impressed. The second time I was blown away by her creativity, resourcefulness, and mostly her enthusiasm. I would hire her in a second to facilitate a program for us. And we are very selective.
