Hi, my name is Pam Hurley and I'm the owner and founder of Hurley Write, Incorporated, a certified woman-owned small business. I have a PhD in technical communication from the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks. I've taught at Duke University, George Washington University, several universities in the North Carolina system. Started with the business 30 years ago after getting frustrated with what was being taught in academia, and understanding that the courses that were being taught weren't really very helpful for people once they got into the workforce. So we'd love to chat with you. My number is (877) 249-7483. Or email me directly, [email protected] I look forward to chatting with you.

Hi, my name is MJ Hurley. I'm an executive trainer here with Hurley Write. I've been part of the Hurley Write team for a little over eight years. One of the things I really pride myself on, I think I'm really good at is problem solving. I love getting involved with different organizations and helping them really discover what their issues are and designing curriculum to help them be able to fix those issues.

I wasn't hired at Hurley Write just because my last name is Hurley. I also have an undergraduate degree in professional writing from Virginia Tech where I also accepted a baseball scholarship. I have my master's degree in instructional design also from Virginia Tech. And during my tenure here at Hurley Write, I've had the privilege of working with a number of companies in different industries and really helped them add value in sort of thinking critically and understanding what their issues are so that they can apply these strategies longterm. If you're interested in working with me directly, or [inaudible 00:00:53] some more information, you can contact us at [email protected] You can also call us at 877-24WRITE or as always, visit our website, www.hurleywrite.com. Thanks.

Hey, everyone. My name is Kenneth Kendall, and I am an executive trainer and consultant with Hurley Write. I have a weird background, and I have not always been in the business world. I actually have an MFA in classical acting, and I am an expert in Shakespeare and musical theater. Yes, really. I spent a lot of time as a professional actor in and around the Chicago land area. And after that, I spent eight years in academia as a professor at a division chair, mainly focusing on the fine arts and humanities.

I have been in the corporate role since 2016, mainly in the learning and development space for both regional and national companies. And I've done a fair amount of consulting along the way. I have developed and led courses on business acumen, presentation skills, customer service, public speaking, leadership development, and personal presence. I am passionate about public speaking and presentation skills, about personal presence and, don't laugh, grammar. Seriously, love grammar. Thank you, Shakespeare for that. I bring a lot of passion and energy to my presentations, a lot of joie de vivre and a fair amount of dad jokes. So, I am very much looking forward to working with you and with your team.

Hi, I'm John Willard, executive trainer at Hurley Write. When I did my undergrad studies at the University of Virginia, I majored in English. I thought I would be a teacher, maybe even a professor. I went straight from UVA to graduate school at Rutgers University, where I continued my studies and taught a number of courses in writing. But then my career took a turn and I ended up going into the market research field. I led teams at American Express and at Bayer. And during that time I did a lot of writing. And I believe that it was the skillset I developed as an English major that helped me to be effective in my business life. Now I'm with Hurley Write, helping professionals like you to understand how you can write more effectively. It's not about the rules of grammar, it's about understanding what you want to accomplish when you write something and understanding who your audience is. I'm looking forward to seeing you at one of our workshops soon. Thanks.

Hi, my name is Bob Wiltfong. I'm the lead instructor for Hurley Write's Presentation Skills curriculum. There's a joke by the comedian, Jerry Seinfeld, that really sums up why we teach what we teach in this field. And the joke is that at a funeral, most people would prefer to be the person in the casket than the one giving the eulogy. It's a funny joke in part, because it's true. There's a bunch of research that backs up that public speaking trumps even death for most people, as far as fears in life, amazing. For the last 20 plus years, I've been working with business executives at Fortune 500 companies around the globe on this very topic, helping them become much more comfortable and dynamic as public speakers. My clients have included General Electric, Charles Schwab, T-Mobile, just to name a few. My background is in TV news journalism. I spent 10 years working as a local TV news reporter and anchor, won some Emmys along the way.

Then I transitioned into comedy and acting where you may know me, or recognize me, from my work as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, or as a national spokesperson for Nationwide Insurance, where I was the character, the world's greatest spokesperson in the world. My classes are fun, interactive, and I give you skills that are very easy to use. I am happy to say that for a lot of people in my classes, the time I spend with them is truly life changing. That's an awesome job that I have. So, I'm looking forward to having you in one of the classes, one of the workshops that we offer. Hopefully you can make it and hopefully we can help you with your public speaking.

Hi, my name is Misha Enos, and I'm an Executive Trainer and Consultant with Hurley Write, Incorporated. Growing up, I was fond of reading biographies and each new subject, whether it was Helen Keller, Jane Adams, Albert Schweitzer, Harriet Tubman, or Amelia Earhart, to name a few, became inspiration for a new career path, even if that path was long to fund.

By the time I got to college, I had finally settled on what some would say was a not much more practical calling, English. I have a bachelor's in English, an MA in Applied English Linguistics, and after a long interval to acquire real-world experience, I completed my Doctorate in Language and Literacy at Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Before entering the doctoral program, I worked as an instructor in English as a second Language at four US universities and private institutes, as well as overseas in Poland and Chile. While in Chile, I left teaching to work as a journalist, covering primarily human rights issues and Chile's mining industry. I've taken a lot of detours in my professional work, just as I did reading about my childhood heroes, but I've always found roots that have developed my interest in expertise in languages and literacy, particularly writing.

The list is long. Ready? I worked as an undergraduate writing consultant at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a graduate writing consultant at Harvard Graduate School of Education, a creative writing teacher in Houston area schools through a nonprofit, a research associate on two major literacy research projects, a translator, writer, and editor on forensic documents for immigration, and as a community college instructor in composition and literature. Hope I didn't forget anything.

Since that does not seem enough career diversity to fill one lifetime, I find myself now working happily with Hurley Write. As an executive trainer, I draw on my ESL background to design and deliver professional writing webinars and workshops to international employees working in the US. I very much look forward to working with you.
