I have observed her on a panel, as a speaker, as a trainer, as a facilitator, and as a talk show host. In each environment, Ms. Ford brings a unique set of capabilities. On a panel, she can be the academician who is very knowledgeable about the subject area; as a speaker she has the ability to clearly communicate with the audience in a very engaging manner and often humorous manner; as a trainer she is effective in using stories and examples in her teaching and as a talk show host she makes the interviewee comfortable in a non-threatening environment. Ms. Ford is an excellent communicator. She has humor, commitment and exceptional skills to provide presentations to different audiences.
