Bruna administered the Meyers Briggs personality test to each member of my family. The results were amazingly accurate in assessing our personality, and learning the why's and wherefores of each of us was incredibly illuminating. I wish I had had this insight when my sons were younger. It quite possibly would have made navigating through their teenage years less of a mystery. On a personal level, it was very enlightening to me to discover the reason for some of my own personal strengths and areas for development. I would highly recommend this process to families and can't think of anyone better able to administer it than Bruna. She is skilled, professional, kind and warm. An hour spent with Bruna is truly enjoyable, revealing and a real self-discovery adventure.

I found the Myers-Briggs evaluation provided to me by Bruna Martinuzzi to be a useful process in the business environment. In my role as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, I interact with a variety of people and personality types on a daily basis, and benefit greatly if I can more easily convey my message clearly. I expect to be able to continue to use the lessons learned from the Myers-Briggs evaluation throughout my career and personal life.
Bruna has coached me through numerous management and leadership challenges. She has a talent for knowing the right questions to ask, and for framing difficult issues into the needed perspective.

It was an excellent session — many participants responded to me that they gained lots of useful tips and techniques that they could apply in both their personal lives and back at the office. Your presentation style was also extremely effective — a great combination of presentation of leading-edge material, as well as gauging your audience well and involving them.
–Allison Rutherford, Executive Director, High Tech Exchange
Mrs. Martinuzzi is top notch in her ability to "connect" with her audience and imbue them with the essence of her training goals. With my 30 years of leadership training during my career as a Naval Aviator, I fully appreciate the talents required to distill the material and tailor the presentation to the audience. Informative, action oriented and even entertaining, Mrs. Martinuzzi's style of presentation was simply superb.

I found Bruna Martinuzzi to be an outstanding coach –she often helped me view an issue from a 360-degree perspective. She brought many innovative tools to her coaching process, including Emotional Intelligence, the Six Thinking Hats and Cognitive Restructuring skills. I would recommend Bruna as a coach to any executive looking for an experienced professional to give them a strategic advantage.
–Mike Heaven, General Manager, Paper Tech Inc.
The coaching experience with Bruna changed my life. Bruna's coaching sessions gave me a better understanding of myself and a direction that will enable me to live the life I want to live. My mission statement will be in my mind and in my daily life forever. Thank you, Bruna. Words cannot even express what your sessions have done for me.
–Vicki Lloyd, Manager of Human Resources, Pro-face INDE Electronics
I had coaching in the past and one of my complaints was that there were no exercises or questions to draw out my creative abilities and focus on my areas of strength. Bruna started off with a 100 question exercise that required me to evaluate where I was in my life both personally and professionally. Bruna is caring and focused on moving her clients forward. She uses very direct questioning and is a great listener. Her life's experience gives her many different views of different situations and she brings depth to each and every coaching session. Thank you, Bruna, for your caring and frank discussions.
–J.Oulton, President, DJ's Designer
Since taking on a senior management role, Bruna's coaching has helped me to remain focused on what was most important for the success of my portfolio responsibilities, my team and my personal pursuits. She has helped me to rise above the playing field and reach a new level of confidence inspired leadership. Bruna's warm-hearted passion for helping people realize and exploit their strengths and her sixth-sense understanding of human behavior and interaction makes her an invaluable coach. Bruna: you are a recharge for the soul.
