      "Antonio and I worked on an interview prep session for a senior consulting position. It was probably the most useful coaching session I've gone through to date. Antonio really understood how to put himself into my shoes, provide guidance, examples and even proactively brought up bits of my own experience from elsewhere in my resume into situations where I had not perceived them as relevant. Would recommend working with him to anyone looking for guidance around their leadership skills communication style, phrasing, body language and 'gravitas'."
