Michael Dent, recently placed as Executive Director of Supporter Income & Impact | WWF

As an interim I go to many interviews and had experienced a couple of rejections. AAW offered me some interview coaching. AAW helped me focus on my key strengths and articulate my value with renewed confidence and at the very next interview I got the role in what was a very competitive field.
