—Jules’ suggestions honed my focus and eliminated flat spots. He enabled me to present the media in a more compelling fashion. He helped make my introduction and conclusions resonate with viewers, ultimately helping me accomplish my main goal – how people can prevent global weirding and save our snow.

—To prepare for my presentation on behalf of Water Partners International, I consulted Jules Older. In the course of a morning, he changed its direction. He spotted a serious error I was about to make — instead of using my slides to support the story, I was fitting the story around the slides. That would have sapped much of the impact of the presentation. Jules advice was practical, relevant and given in a tone that was easy to hear. And no one fell asleep watching one too many slides.

—You were a HUGE success. A teacher came to me on Friday and told me for the fifth time what a great job you did with her students. All of the teachers mentioned you favorably at least once. I think it’s a record.
