Crisp and clear. Which goes for the audio too.
Yolanda holds a great conversation with each guest and gets them to open up about specific situations that create teachable moments for the listener. Thank you!
Fluid and Informative
Yolanda has an effortless style and the vibe with her subjects comes over the air like two friends just catching up but the info is no less informative to us outsiders. She comes across as very prepared and does a great job of keeping the discussion moving from topic to topic. Looking forward to future episodes.
Yolanda has great questions that inform a business leader on any level on how to be a better boss. Love it. Great interview.
