Executive Administrator

"I have had the great pleasure working with Red Cup Presentations and Judie Knoerle over the last few years. Her professionalism and dedication to helping our executives represent their best is phenomenal. 

Her presentation training has significantly improved how our executives, high potential leaders and innovators recap their projects and create proposals. To that end; her Innovation pitch training has evolved into an important phase of our system innovation process. 

Through her coaching, Judie molds pitch presentations so those decision makers who decide to move forward on disruptive ideas will accept and embrace them.
