Coaching and Leadership Development Testimonials

Written Testimonials

Jennifer Heard - Vice President

I personally have attended dozens of leadership trainings over the last 10 years and while they were really good, this one stood out and I believe it has more to do with the instructors vs. content.  Your style and connection with the audience was demonstrated by your ability to keep the entire leadership team engaged, participating and having fun.

Steve Mauri - COO

The Gumball Enterprises team has been an excellent partner for PopCap as we’ve navigated organizational changes and leadership succession.  They have helped us hone in on and improve critical areas in talent development both at our leadership level and deeper in our organization.  Gumball continues to be a helpful sounding board in our ongoing operations and is always a pleasure to work with.

Josh Reich - CEO

Having a third-party independent facilitator was a new approach for us and Gumball was able to quickly identify themes and design a program that allowed us to make the most of our valuable time away from the office. Over the two days, we were able to fast-track the development of a deep level of trust and alignment between the team and towards our strategic plan.

Tim Gleason - Staff Software Engineer

I always talk with you about the things I'm most uncomfortable with.

Yuri Lee - Founder

You're an angel. What a difference our session made for me and Wonky ❤️

Thank you, Ann Dorgan 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽


Mindy Huang - Product Manager

Thank you, Ann! You're an amazing mentor. Every time I talk to you I get more clarity in my life and a huge boost in confidence. ️

Lisa Hufford - CEO

Ann Dorgan (CEO of Gumball Enterprises) is a very experienced and intuitive executive leadership coach. When working with my team and me, I’ve always been impressed with her ability to identify the key goals and focus on the priorities that drive success.  She has a way of cutting through all the clutter and getting to the heart of the matter quickly.

Nancy Lovecchio - Head of Global Rewards

Gumball Enterprises's executive coaching contributes to the highest level of my strategic thinking. Our work leads me to the big ‘aha’ learnings that will last a life time. My coach helps me connect the dots between seemingly disconnected data points, which in turn impact my business in a unique and big way.

Wayne Hickey - Executive Vice President

I think we’ll all look back at our time together as a watershed moment for our team. Appreciate all the work that went in to getting us there.

Jon Tippens - Software Engineer

As someone who has done a lot of self-learning over the course of my life, I like to think that I'm pretty good at identifying people who have developed independent ways of thinking. I immediately identified Ann as one such person -- working with Ann is a pleasure precisely because of the freedom and independence that her thinking and experience enables.

Bryce Smith - Founder & CEO 

(on the 2YR Strategic Planning Off-Site)

Thank you for the amazing two days!!! Really loved the way you led the process!
