"Our organization invited Michelle Saahene to speak with us in hopes that she could offer insight on how to make actionable changes within our company to support a fair & equal workplace. I can't express enough what a wonderfully engaging speaker she is. Our whole team was moved & inspired by the words she spoke, sharing personal experiences and ideas on how we can be better - not only as a company but as advisers to our clients and perhaps most importantly, as individuals in our communities. Thank you, Michelle, for sharing your wisdom with us - we're excited to be a part of the solution and continuing these types of conversations as we progress towards a more equitable future for all."
"Michelle participated in a panel discussion that recognized the complexities of Allyship, what it looks like and how to be an ally without having a shared experience at an intimate event at our school. She truly engaged with our audience with her transparency, humor, and expertise. Michelle has a way of connecting with people on an organic level and imparts techniques and takeaways that provide useful tools to positively impact their lives. The guests left feeling motivated and inspired. We look forward to having Michelle back to speak in the future."
"Michelle possesses rare and invaluable characteristics that allow her to achieve great outcomes as a life coach. She is able to ignite the flame we all have within us and motivate people to strive for things beyond what they think they are able to achieve. She helps people see their genuine ambitions and desires and break down any imaginary barriers that have been keeping them from reaching for those goals. Her ability to read peoples emotions enables her to adapt her style of communication compassionately in a way that her clients are most receptive to the message. As mentioned, Michelle has an incredible ability to read people and feel their emotions and thoughts. She's able to put herself in other peoples shoes, understand where they're coming from, and what you can do to help them if they're in a bad way. She does this in a way that never feels belittling or aggressive, but in a way that MAKES people want to do something."
“Michelle (and From Privilege to Progress) is a very informed and engaging facilitator. She (and Melissa) conducted a very successful workshop that sparked crucial dialogue for my organization. I highly recommend her!”
