Rave Reviews for HWI

“You are the most inspiring speaker we’ve had. All of the leaders who attended your bully seminar asked about brining you back! You are very interactive and got the audience empowered to go back to their departments and start addressing bad behaviors.”

Lorraine Villegas, Manager of Human Resource, Paradise Valley Hospital

“We are still reeling in the after effects of an uplifting Nurse Week Celebration here. Your presentation was inspiring and fun – My whole team loved the messaging.  So many practical points made, they bear repeating over and over because to your point we don’t often stop to take toll of the good work we provide and the reasons for celebrating our work all year round!”

Linda Talley, MS, BSN, RN, NE-BC, VP & CNO Children’s National

“Listening to Renee has energized me to go back to my coworkers and work together to encourage and support positive morale!”

Alexandra Gross, BSN, RN

“Renee makes me glad to be a nurse. She is so entertaining and makes the information she presents easy to understand. I want to keep her in my back pocket!”

Sharyn Shane

“Excellent presentations. Renee is an outstanding speaker with a big heart. I would recommend this course to every nurse regardless of experience. Did not feel bored or sleepy even after a big lunch!”

Maria Martin, RN

“Thought Renee was one of the best speakers I ever listened to. Wish she taught me in school and worked at my organization! By Renee being a speaker, nurses everywhere benefit. This is an amazing thing!

Margaret Gibson

“Renee’s seminar helped me to remember why I became a nurse and re-energized me to keep at it because I love it! It’s who I am.”

Christy Rampton, RN

“Renee exceeded all expectations for our events!  She provides a professional, down to earth, real life presentation that is humorous and entertaining, and provides a host of resources and suggestions for participants. She is worth every dime and we are incredibly grateful for the work that she does with nurses and healthcare professionals! 

Kris Rimbos, MS, CNS, RNC-OB, C-EFM Clinical Manager, Good Samaritan Medical Center

“Dr. Thompson’s presentation on nurse bullying hit the nail on the head! It’s obvious to me that she understands the core issues related to bullying. Her solutions are practical and will prove to be very effective when nurses need to handle common bullying issues.”

Cindy Tryniszewski, RN, MSN, Executive Director, Clinical eLearning, Elsevier Clinical Solutions.

“Renee is an excellent nurse and speaker, her experience and insight are helpful to deal with aggressive behaviors, bully new staff.   I’ve heard Renee speak before but each time I hear her I learn another way to deal with nurses!!  Great Presentation.”

AORN attendee

“You helped everyone to feel good about themselves and remember why we went into nursing.”

Dr. Elaine Nelson, CNO Texas Health

“What a phenomenal presentation! Your ability to deliver a powerful presentation, in a meaningful and “fun” way, was one of the most well received (myself included) presentations, I have had the privilege of being part of, in a long time! Frontline staff nurses walked out hugging me, saying “Thank you for inviting me to be a part of this”. Wow!!”

Kathy Harley VP/CNO, Heritage Valley Health System
