Who We Partner With

Liz Bentley is the Olympian business coach that has been a magical secret weapon of many uber successful influencers. She created and conducted a great and memorable Team-building Day for my team, which was a big success all around.  Everyone was fully engaged and captivated by her energy, lively presentation and hilarious stories. Much was learned about ourselves and our group chemistry.  For me, the seminar served as a strong endorsement of our bond and good fortune to share our careers together.

Liz led the sales teams of Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter in a 2-day Sales Boot Camp. Even some who were skeptical of sales training seminars were completely engaged and blown away by how effective it was in bonding the team and giving them new tools to energize their sales process. The response was overwhelming from the entire team, which resonated for months after. We can’t wait to do it again!

We have been working with Liz Bentley for a couple of years now, and I don’t think we’ll ever stop! In my particular organization, our work has been to move people to the next level of leadership. Liz brings just the right amount of compassion and expectation to this, and her input and collaboration has helped all of those she’s worked with here to achieve true growth. Everyone on my team is creative, I have found that traditional coaching models do not always apply. Liz really understands the creative spirit and has worked beautifully helping people find strength in operation and tactical growth, without curtailing their inspiration.

Liz Bentley has an unparalleled ability to quickly size up any corporate landscape —downloading important dynamics and dispensing advice that is immediately actionable. As a coach, Liz commands your trust with her authority and compassion—you want to listen to her and put her suggestions to work. Her personalized approach charts a clear path to success, and her innovative, goal-driven methods have both instantaneous and far-reaching, cumulative effects.
