Dr Liz Berney | Keynote Speaker, Consultant & Coach
Dr. Liz Berney is a renowned public speaker, consultant, trainer, and executive coach. "I have spent over 20 years with senior leaders in top organizations like The Gates Foundation, Coca Cola, and the U.S. House of Representatives, helping them navigate change, build and sustain top performing senior executive teams, and significantly enhance cross-functional problem-solving. When leaders drive change effectively and teams thrive internally and can work effectively cross functionally, organizations excel. Many organizations go down in flames because they have the technical know-how but don't know how to manage, teams, conflict and change." "As they come out of my sessions, I want people to leave feeling energized and inspired to make changes that help them, their teams, and their organizations." - Dr Liz Berney SERVICES: KEYNOTE OR LARGE GROUP SPEAKER - Enhancing Leadership Team Effectiveness - Enhancing Leadership Team Conflict Management Skills - Enhancing Leadership Team Influence and Negotiation Skills - Navigating Personality Types and Communication Challenges - Designing and Developing Change Management Programs - Designing and Developing Mentoring Programs LEADERSHIP TEAM OR STAFF WORKSHOP FACILITATOR - Highly interactive, no matter the size of the audience. - High energy, dynamic and fun. - Relevant, based on recent organization research and best practices. - Meeting Facilitation Best Practices - Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) - Collaboration Tools, Techniques, and Methods C-SUITE EXECUTIVE COACH - Influence and Negotiation Skills - Conflict Management Skills - Communication Best Practices - Change Management Best Practices - Stress Management - How to Be a Mentor - How to Obtain Mentoring CLIENTS: Dr. Berney's clients include The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Coca Cola, Tropicana, The National Quality Program ("The Baldridge Award"), AT&T, Fannie Mae, American Red Cross, Quaker Oats, American Management Systems, Cisco, Human Rights First, National Public Radio, Dun and Bradstreet, John F.

Her guidance, facilitation, and leadership throughout the process was exceptional
"Luckily we found Liz at a time when our firm was going through major restructuring and transition. Her guidance, facilitation, and leadership throughout the process was exceptional -- I'm not sure where we would be now without it. She helped us to more clearly define our ever-evolving vision and identify how we can best translate the change to our clients. Most importantly, she helped us to communicate with each other and give voice to many unspoken morale and structural issues that had been festering for quite some time and getting in the way of moving forward productively. Thank you, Liz, we are most grateful!"
Liz was by far the most talented and effective facilitator.
"Of all the professional facilitators our organization has used in my 14 years here, Liz was by far the most talented and effective facilitator."

“Helen Noble, Director, Workforce Relations Division
National Institutes of Health She is able to get information across in an understandable and entertaining fashion. In addition, Liz checks in with people individually and as a group to ensure the message is clear. Liz is very good at group interaction exercises. I have seen her take a group who appears not to be interested in a particular exercise – encourage participation – with the net product being strong participation and buy-in. This is where Liz truly excels”.
