If you ever forget what she taught you , she leaves you with a quick tip sheet that is easy to reference." (Gina Bauman, Institutional Venture Partners)

    Andrea Devaux

  • "When we first took over our Center, we were asked to be on TV to be interviewed by a local practitioner. We had never been on TV before, and had no idea how to prepare. We met Andrea through mutual women business-owners, and heard that she was available for media consulting, so we hired her. She was professional, knowledgeable and so very helpful in providing us with several suggestions that eventually gave us the freedom to relax on camera, and focus on our message without distracting the viewers with personal characteristics. We would recommend Andrea to anyone seeking to improve their public image, or anyone interested in expanding their media experience!" (Renee Russo, Themography Center of Sonoma County)

The LCI media training especially was a real eye-opener for our executives. The information was extremely relevant, entertainingly presented and interactive. Best of all, the feedback afterward was 100% positive." (Ellen Sweeny, Shoppinglist.com )

  • “I’ve worked in the media, participated in media trainings and conducted media trainings – but the LCI media training is the best by far. LCI not only explained the process in a thoughtful and succinct manner – but helped our executives go from 0 to 500 mph on the media scale within a day. When you want to know how best to work with and talk to the media, call LCI first.” (Brianne Miller, TBD.com)
