"The presentation entitled "Emotional Intelligence" which Roger Wolkoff gave to our trade association in March 2019 was received enthusiastically. Our members were engaged and participated intellectually, physically, and emotionally during his three-hour workshop. Both our older and younger members responded to Roger. We explored human interaction and psychology across a spectrum of work and life situations. We learned how to recognize signals from within ourselves in different circumstances, and how to be aware of others at the same time. Roger gave us all some great new relations skills and demonstrated how effective they can be. Roger was a pleasure to work with. Communications during our booking process were smooth and our messages were promptly acknowledged. I would recommend working with Roger Wolkoff to anyone considering his material. We will have Roger back again with another one of his workshops, because our members have requested his return."

"Roger Wolkoff spoke with us about ‘What happens when you are real in dealing with others. He spoke of accountability in communications, how to be aware of the right communications style for a given situation, and how to remain true to who you are. Vulnerability is not a weakness; it’s a strength that people appreciate. The more you convince people you’re trustworthy and authentic, the more loyalty you’ll command. No matter our occupation, it’s all about people and relationships. His talk was filled with enthusiasm and humor, with plenty of interactivity."
— Jack Ferreri, Rotary Club of Madison West Towne-Middleton
"Roger Wolkoff has the remarkable ability to connect with people in a way that is meaningful, non-threatening, and inspiring. He talks about how we talk with one another, how we tend to evade connecting at a deep and personal level; then he talks about approaches we can take to overcome that. He delivers his message with a kind and sensitive voice, giving you the feeling that it’s safe to be yourself, and to talk about the things you usually don’t, because it usually does not feel safe. Hearing his message inspired me to work hard on improving my communication, to chip away at the walls I put up that keep me from satisfying and meaningful conversation. He listens."
— Peter Gascoyne, Economic Modeling Solutions

"All About Authenticity” is more than the name of Roger’s business… it’s a statement of who Roger is. He’s a true champion of authenticity who legitimately walks the talk in his daily life. Passion, commitment, humor and integrity are just part of the package when you work with him. Combine the qualities above with more than a decade of training, team leadership, business analysis and project management and the result is a savvy, engaging human being who is deeply committed to improving communication, culture and team functionality within organizations. I cannot recommend working with Roger highly enough."
