Thank you, Joann! We loved having you at our leadership meeting. You delivered exactly what we were looking for . . . a more complete understanding of what we each bring to the leadership of our organization, how to work together to improve communication and conflict resolution, and you are a great facilitator . . . you created a safe space for us to open up and build trust. Thank you!

- Kim Hanna, President and CEO, ALS Association Florida

Dr. Quinn’s presentation was outstanding! Very practical and useful!

- Attendee, 7th Annual Conference of the Society of Emotional Intelligence

Fierce is the word that comes to mind when I think of Joann Quinn, and after each interaction with her I find myself inspired to do more, to stretch farther and to think more strategically. Joann brings great knowledge and science to the table, of course, and seems to have endless energy but really, for me, it’s her ability to identify the root of an issue, to boil it to its essence and then to relentlessly focus on solving it that is the truly special ability of Joann. Joann is a truth-teller, too, and why I gravitate to her – in a world filled with noise, Joann Farrell Quinn is the signal. Thank you for your partnership, Joann!

- Michael J. Kelly, Former CEO, PSCU

I first met Joann when we were working on different aspects of an executive leadership development program for a large financial institution. Joann conducted assessments and provided coaching to the executives and later led one of the program’s full-day workshops. She was well received in both capacities and I, too, was highly impressed with Joann’s grasp of the subject matter and her connection to audiences.

Joann is a subject matter expert on emotionally intelligent leadership and has extensive training both as a scholar and practitioner. Perhaps most impressive, however, is her ability to demystify the science to make the research practical, applicable, and relevant. She has an easy and authentic style and is able to connect with audiences almost immediately. Since having the chance to work with her at the financial services firm, we have invited her to share her presentation on emotionally intelligent leadership with other clients. If you are looking for a “deeper dive” into executive leadership development; one that is evidence-based and highly engaging, I would strongly encourage you to consider Joann as your keynoter, coach, or presenter.

- Jim Sartain, Principle Partner and Senior Consultant, CODA Partners

Joann has a vision and a path to get there. She is focused and knows how to motivate the people around her. She is not just someone you want on your team, but the person to lead it.

- Sean Rast, Owner, Secora Consulting and PharmaCora Consulting

I found Joann very professional as a consultant to our business in London and Almaty [Kazakhstan]. It was a challenging brief and she handled the demands methodically and provided us with many excellent ideas and solutions. I wish her the very best, can recommend her very highly and look forward to working with her again.

- Nigel Bullock, Managing Director, Visor Capital (UK) Ltd.

I have had the privilege of working with Joann for a number of years now and would highly recommend her as a management consultant. Joann has provided mission critical solutions to our business time and time again. She is a trusted advisor that I would highly recommend to anyone in need of management consulting solutions. 

- Micah Eldred, CEO, Spartan Securities

I found Joann very professional as a consultant. It has been a pleasure working with her on specific business opportunities and I continue to look forward to work & collaborate with her.

- Arnab Debnath, President & CEO, Anshinsoft Corp

Joann restructured and created our entire operations function including all operating procedures and controls. Joann was able to act as an agent for change in restructuring, without destroying morale.

As a result, our operations and back office systems are as sophisticated and organized as those of our largest competitors.
