  • “One ‘firecracker’ of a corporate trainer”

    Terina is one ‘firecracker’ of a corporate trainer. She combines personal experience with organizational initiatives to taper the needed content of a class to that specific audience. I most enjoy her significant examples to demonstrate course objectives as she educates her audience.

    Human Resources Manager

  • “She has a way, unlike anyone I’ve ever met, of connecting to people”

    I could use this opportunity to speak of Terina’s expertise at training, which is first rate. I choose, however, to speak of her as an amazingly gifted human being. She has a way, unlike anyone I’ve ever met, of connecting to people and making them feel like they are the only person in the classroom. She is passionate and confident and brings sheer joy to those around her.

    — Cheri Gray
    Executive Administrative Assistant

  • “You are a true professional with deep understanding of the business and passionate about helping clients”

    Terina provided executive coaching services, conducted a survey and hosted a workshop of my staff members to start the process to build a high performance team. In the whole process, Terina was very professional, knowledgeable and highly energized. In addition, she is fun to work with.

  • “She did an awesome job! I recommend you contact Terina Allen to provide services for you and the leaders in your organization.”

    Terina is the ultimate professional and exhibits that behavior in everything she does. I had the opportunity to be part of a presentation led by Terina at the joint session of NCPMC and AACPM this past week in Atlanta. She did an outstanding job on Strategic Leadership: Own Your Power to Demonstrate Value. She provided a wealth of knowledge for us as leaders. She presented information for us to consider as we move our programs forward.

I do it differently so you can do it better!

I don’t just talk and write about things. I do them. Everything I share – all my expertise and insights – comes from real-world experience! When I speak with you, your team and your audience, you’ll benefit from my graduate and undergraduate degrees, all my certifications, training and experiences.

But that is not what matters most. What matters most is that you will benefit from my proven ability to deliver results! I have successfully completed more than 1,300 in-depth projects where I have crafted the performance metrics, designed the leadership programs, created the communication plans, executed the strategy and operational plans, led the large-scale organizational change, planned and managed the budgets, partnered with business, nonprofit and academic executives, designed human capital and talent management programs, developed the teams and accomplished key organizational effectiveness goals.

I have been in the trenches and understand how to assess your real challenges. Before I started educating others, publishing my insights and speaking around the world, I first learned how to truly accomplish big things myself. I made mistakes. I struggled. I failed, and then I succeeded in the real world and in laboratories inside small and large organizations. Yes. I am an international speaker. But first, I am a committed life-long learner, practitioner, executive and leader.

Speaking and writing are part of what I do when I am not actually doing the work I speak and write about. I look forward to working with you! ———Terina Allen
