What Others Are Saying
With her vast practical experience, Greta Muller is an expert in teaching technical presentation skills. But where Greta really stands out is her ability to amplify her clients’ natural strengths as speakers to put forth their most authentic selves. A true director, she helps her clients reconcile how they think they come across to an audience with what is actually projected. Greta does her work with candor, grace and humor, and I fondly refer to her as “my mirror.” Working with Greta, I found a trusted adviser and consultant who has played an important role in my life and career.

Tara edited the first edition of Greta Muller’s Opening Your Presence back in 2014, before Emerald Lake Books officially opened its doors. And when Greta began considering a second edition of the book, updated to include insights on how to authentically present oneself in an online environment, the first person she thought of to help her was Tara.
It’s been a pleasure to work with Greta again. Her warmth, humor and approachable style made this book a fun project to work on.
