Have an event that needs a burst of energy and a dose of inspiration?


From leadership retreats to spa and girlfriend getaways to motivational talks, I am here to wake up your audience and get the group interacting and connecting with self and others on a deeper level. Your group goals are my priority – with this in mind, talks are customized to meet the unique needs of your gathering.

Ilene facilitated a tremendous session with our hotel’s executive team. She assisted us in enhancing our professional relationships with leadership techniques that focus on results. Ilene does not ‘teach’ you to an outcome; she creates an environment in which you lead yourselves to the desired result. We continue to grow our strategic team dynamic from a foundation that was built during our time with Ilene.
— Michael Hirschler, Director of Human Resources, Four Seasons Hotel Seattle
