“Wendy Heshka provided us with a series of excellent presentations and workshops focused on crisis communication and media relations. These were of great value to our members, empowering them with innovative ideas and practical processes in case they are faced with any type of crisis. Wendy’s intimate knowledge of this topic allowed her to provide answers/solutions to a wide range of inquiries from our very divergent group. We intend on continuing to engage Wendy on a regular basis.”
Brad Harrison, President

“As a previous attendee of Wendy Heshka’s communications planning workshop, I can attest to not only the importance of the topic to professional communicators, but also to Wendy’s no-nonsense approach to tackling it. The workshop forced me to crystallize my own communications planning, be more articulate about strategy, and be more forceful about measuring reach and business impact. I would recommend this class to any professional who is trying to take a communications project from idea to execution – and cares about its value to a broader campaign or organization. Wendy is a well-prepared teacher who brings plenty of experience to the topic, and importantly, she’s able to customize the workshop for different individuals and backgrounds — allowing participants to immediately implement an improved communications plan in their own organization.”

“Wendy seamlessly weaves the kinds of communication theory that I teach with practical, hands-on cases, often times drawn from her own extensive experience.  But she’s able to engage with students in a way that many educators train years to master; Wendy makes it seem effortless.”
