Gail Bower has armed me with new tools, practices, and processes for a very effective approach to sales. With her honest feedback and excellence at assessing the results of exercises, “Coach Gail” (as I call her behind her back) challenged me to bust through my comfort zone and practice my newfound capabilities.

Gail's insightful and responsive guidance and support has created a paradigm shift in how I think about and communicate with sponsors.  In addition to helping me get out of a few difficult pinches, I can honestly say I sleep better knowing I have Gail as a resource as I continue to develop my skills.

Coaching, Mentoring & Retainer Relationships With Gail Bower

It’s like having your own personal hotline to the expertise and experience of Gail Bower.

Through coaching, mentoring and retainer relationships, you’ll benefit from objective, confidential feedback and advice from one of the industry’s top business strategists. 

Whether you want to improve your skills, boost your confidence and leadership abilities, or just need a sounding board, Gail will be there for you. 

Retainer Arrangements

Serving as chief executive or senior staff member of a nonprofit organization, association, tourism agency, destination, or business can be isolating. 

Why go it alone?

As a sounding board and trusted advisor, Gail will:

  • Verify the soundness of a strategy or approach.
  • Provide insightful feedback on issues related to visibility, strategy, and sustainability of your organization.
  • Support the implementation of your strategy or special project.
  • Or just talk over something on your mind.

Every organization is different. Let’s talk and determine the best access structure for your needs. Call Gail at 215/922-6937 or email
