"It was thrilling to have Jeannette and Jorge on our campus for two days. The insightful presentations, intertwined by the wonderful segments of tango dancing, were very meaningful to all who attended. Correlating communication skills through the "art of dance" is a non-threatening way to encourage everyone to examine their communication faux pas and to work to improve their everyday communication skills. Dr. Tango is a pleasure to work with and everyone came away "buzzing" about the program and the beautiful dancing!"

"Dr. Tango's presentation (which is greatly enhanced with examples of tango dancing) is filled with basic life lessons, which the audience can use on a daily basis. The correlations between the tango and our abilities to both communicate more effectively and to become better leaders were presented in a manner that each person could see and practically feel: the dance can be directly correlated to our personal and professional lives. Jeannette's passion for what she is doing is infectious and the attendees at the Simon Foundation for Continence's Innovating for Continence conference came away "buzzing" after the presentation on the valuable lessons they had just learned in a very new and unique way. Thank you, Dr. Tango!"

"...It reminded me of all the best artists I have seen, as they've performed together. Alone in a way, a private victory only you two understand. Then you brought the meaning to light after each dance and tied all of it together as a humble teacher... I looked into the audience, both while you were dancing and while you were speaking. And everyone was so engaged for such a very diverse crowd."

"For many years, Jeannette has served as educational resource as well as valuable doctor to the YPO/WPO and CEO membership... I would recommend her to any of the 'O' groups as a top rated resource."

  • I enjoyed it so much that my only suggestion would be that it was longer! Fantastic material! Fantastic presenter! And...Fantastic job at putting it all together...
  • There is nothing that I could even hope to improve on. She was one of the best speakers I have had the privilege to see. She made it so easy to relate the tango to all aspects of life, not just with business or leadership.

Audience Feedback:

  • I thought her presentation was wonderful. It was not at all what I expected and this was my first CCMSA meeting and I was so very pleased.
  • She seems to be full of life. I also like to dance and I know that when you're engaged in something that you are passionate about, it shows to everyone you come in contact with. I was very touched that she said good-bye to me and mentioned my grandson, who is ill.
  • She is engaging and comfortable. Covers the objection of possible non-interest in a tango dance by clearly expressing how she became involved. Dr. Tango also clearly overcame what some may think as uncomfortable, the submissive role in tango and just how that can be helpful when you work in a business high-powered position. I really like this presentation, as you can see.
  • Genuine & open.
  • Engaging, personable, outgoing.
  • Easy-going, caring, humorous, friendly.
  • Dr. Tango was very engaging and seemed to relate well with those in the audience.
  • Dr. Potts is a wonderful person and she definitely convinced me to take a good hard look at myself. Her talk was very inspirational and she was definitely well received by all of our members. Personally, I learned the importance of letting go and acceptance. I just hope I can actually achieve it.

  • Jeannette--I was enthralled with your presentation at the recent Cleveland Coach Federation meeting. I look forward to attending one of your future workshops/presentations. Thank you again for a wonderful morning!
  • Darlene--Wow, what a wonderful morning! You were soooo right to encourage me to make it back for her presentation. I made that extra effort to get back on Thursday night so that I could be at the CCF meeting on Friday. IT WAS GREAT! I just went to her website and read every page. Even better. I would love to hear her again, so will watch for oppty.
  • In yoga we learn of auras, a glow that surrounds a person that is their true spirit. The more connected to the world the bigger the glow. With Dr. Tango I almost need sun glasses. What a present and connected person.
  • Wonderful presenter with very unique ideas. These ideas need to be implemented in the real world everyday.
  • Authentic, vivacious!
  • Please read the explanation: Iceberg Why? Because I saw something on the surface and drew some conclusions, then later discovered that 90% of what she's about is below the surface. WOW! And that is a very positive, powerful WOW! Thanks!
  • Authentic, caring, and dynamic!
  • Gestalt through the art and joy of dance.
  • She teaches a very valuable concept of leadership and communication (truly connecting with someone) through Tango, something one will always remember.
  • Entertains the audience and demonstrate how dance can be used as a tool to teach.
  • Using experiences as an MD and a tango enthusiast, she blends them to provide insights into leadership and emotional intelligence.
  • She uses dance and medicine as metaphors for relationship skills listening, making connection, letting go of control, being fully present, and leading powerfully (and knowing that sometimes the strongest lead is to follow!)
  • Creates an opportunity to explore the language of non-verbal in a world that only hears the verbal!
