Client Testimonials

Don't just hear it from me, hear it from my clients!

 

I reached out to Angela because I just wanted to get her opinion at first.  She suggested a two hour boot camp to start because everyone was “luke warm” to the idea of a consultant coming in and telling them what to do.  The boot camps with both Carson Daly's team and with Kevin & Bean's team were big hits.  Angela was so disarming, relaxed and confident that I immediately saw the body language of the team change. They were engaged and we started working on character, roles, benchmarks, positioning, relevant topics, etc.  Everyone came away from that first meeting seeing Angela as a key contributor to their success and we signed her up for an annual contract.

 

Angela continued to provide us with valuable coaching, either through phone calls, bi-weekly emails and in person visits.  She was able to help us get through some heavy issues but the end result is we have a better show.  She is still working with this show in Los Angeles today and I am in the process of trying to hire her here in Las Vegas.  She makes a difference!

 

 

Before we talked, I felt overwhelmed and daunted. I didn't want to write the book and was fitting it in, but not in as disciplined way as I needed. I felt discouraged. Angela helped me keep at the task by focusing on the smallest step each day to keep going, and why I was even writing the book in the first place. Focusing on that helped me get it done.

Angela is like no other coach I've worked with before.  She has the unique ability to help you take your strengths and weaknesses, as a talent and a person, and transform them into assets that help you better connect with your audience.  In Angela, my team and I have found a collaborator, coach, encourager, and friend.

Angela Perelli doesn’t talk a big game, she produces results. Under her coaching, our show shot to #1 Persons 25-54 & #1 Women 25-54, showed up in research with one of the highest likeability scores ever seen in Adult Contemporary morning radio, and we won the Marconi Award! Enough said. Angela walks softly and carries a big book.

Angela doesn't use a cookie-cutter approach to get people motivated. She found out what excites me and how I would feel if I were to pursue my dream and complete it. I'll never forget the moment when it all clicked. Angela's coaching made me finish a book I'd been writing and had lost my passion for. Thanks to Angela, my book was completed and was successful well beyond my expectations.

My first experience with Angela was as our morning show talent coach, and the amount of kind-but-wise guidance she imparted at that time was SO needed. Prior to working with her, our show was basically an imitation of radio shows that we had looked up to. Angela really helped develop us into a cohesive team with our own unique voice. Her style of coaching was gentle but firm, and always helped us realize what we needed to do as if we came up with it. This transitioned into a friendship, and I have been lucky enough to work with Angela on a personal level as well through her life coaching. She had the unique perspective of listening to me from a character standpoint on the radio and could tell where my strengths and weaknesses were, which I was able to explore and learn about with her individually. Her work with the show was fantastic, but her work with me and my life goals and personal issues was life-changing. I should mention that as I learned more about myself and what makes me tick, my performance on the air got better as well and I think I became a better teammate. Angela really provides a full circle experience!

I told a close friend I needed some guidance in my life as far as my personal and professional life and he referred me to Angela. I had never used a life coach before and was a little nervous to call, but the nervousness quickly went away when she answered. Angela is very upbeat, positive and easy to talk to; you can feel her sincerity when speaking to her. I was most impressed with the way she can dissect a situation and show you the different angles which help with decision making.  To this day, I still use the tools she taught me when making difficult decisions. I would recommend anyone to call Angela when needing a life coach.

 

 

Angela is  a force of good in the universe.

In my long career, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a great number of consultants.  But to call Angela a consultant, would be to miss what she really is, a partner, career coach, and brilliant radio mind.  She has an innate insight into what makes talent tick, and can deliver criticism and compliments with equal receptiveness.  I know, you think because she asked for a quote that I am going “over the top” with my praise.  Anyone who knows me, will know this. I am blunt and I don’t bullshit. Angela is, bar none, unequalled in propelling talent forward, honing skills at an unbelievable pace, and when you’re done with just one call, you will be blown away by the little things most of us miss, yet are the tiny corrective measures that take talented people and turn them into rockstar performers.

 

We’ve worked together on several shows, and the ones who applied her suggestions, have seen their careers explode.

 

If you’re like me, you worked with a few “consultants” and they all have pretty much the same ideas.  But Angela Perelli is not any consultant you would recognize, because, from the first call, you see that she is invested in your talent’s success, and this is more than personal. This is her passion.  Let’s face it, Panama City isn’t a huge market, yet she delivers for us, just like she would for a superstar team in LA.  She cares, she sees things and hears things that you will shake your head after a call and ask yourself, “How did I not hear that?”  Its talent, no doubt, but it’s a career spent coaching some of the biggest names in our industry, and when quite a few have come from a little tiny beach town on the panhandle of Florida.  Are somehow lucky and stumble on future greats, nah… we’ve become known for building great shows that win, because Angela Perelli knows what the fuck she is doing, empowers talent to grow, and her advice and feedback isn’t techno-babble, or stock trade answers. It’s advice that resonates in its simplicity.  From the big issues, to the tiny details that make good shows great, this is one person you want on your team…. She gets it, and when the call is done, you see the excitement in your talent’s face, because they get it too….It’s their “aha moment,” that immediately transform into amazing things on the radio…the very first day she works with your team.

I would recommend anyone to call Angela when needing a life coach.

 

 

I have worked with Angela as a Program Director who needed help with my morning show at KLLY, then later I joined the morning show and needed direction and feedback.  A few years after that, I was one of Angela’s first life coach clients who needed to leave behind some negative self-beliefs, gain confidence and restore my self-worth.

 

In every situation, Angela helps you with your toolbox!  You will learn how to use the tools you already have, unload the ones you don't need to carry any longer and find new ones that will be more helpful.  Over time, you will learn how to forge new tools if and when they are needed.  Tools that you can’t buy at the hardware store! Your new toolbox will carry everything necessary to create deeper and more emotional & intimate connections, and the bravery to expose your vulnerabilities which leads to more vibrant and compelling creativity.

 

Angela has been a valuable teacher and mentor both professionally and personally.   She has given me focus and clarity.  She has helped me gain insight and given me the self-confidence to take risks on and off the air in pursuit of a deeper satisfaction, more fulfilling experiences and more desired results.

 

Before working with Angela, I was in a rut- feeling stale with my professional goals, having personality conflicts with my husband and an employee, and struggling to find a work-life balance that worked for me and my family. But after our time together, I identified and solved a few pain points in my life. I went to grad school, learned how to manage personality conflicts and set boundaries, eliminated mom guilt, and even redecorated a room in my house.

 

As a result, I now have an MBA (a big personal life goal achieved!), have improved dramatically as a leader, and am much happier in my marriage.

 

I would absolutely recommend Angela Perelli. Even if you're the person everyone else thinks "has it together," you'd be surprised how much coaching can improve your life. Several years later, I reflect on my coaching with Angela Perelli as a life-changing experience.

 

"Working with Angela doesn't just help with what happens between 6am and 10am on your show, but what happens in the other hours of your life. I've had personal and professional crisis that Angela was able to help guide me through."

 

"My wife(and on-air partner) and I have had the incredible privilege working with Angela over the last two years. We're a heritage(16 years)morning show that was frankly a tad 'flat'. With Angela's incredible vision, we've been able to not only hone our brand, but inject some passion and fun back into our show. Angela has been able to accentuate our personalities to allow for even more real interaction with our audience. Talk about teaching an 'old dog new tricks', we both hear Angela's words of wisdom in our heads as we're on the air! After over 30 years on the air, we can say, without reservation, that Angela has enabled us to have the most fun and creativity that we've ever enjoyed on the air. We've had our share of consultants and PDs over the years, Angela is clearly in a league of her own! Thank you Angela, you ARE the best!"

 

“Working with Angela was one of the best things that has happened to me in my career. Prior to her direction, I didn't really understand who I was as a talent, or the power that I possess to make an impact with listeners, community, and ratings. She helped me discover who I am, and that ultimately transformed me into a better on-air jock/personality, for the workplace & for our listener-ship. Her attention to detail is the difference between being good, and becoming great. I highly recommend Angela as a coach or consultant!”
