About Carla Echols-Hayes, President

Carla Echols-Hayes has presented customized communications workshops and coached thousands of technical and financial experts, managers, bankers, credit analysts, and technical sales professionals to write with data successfully.

After obtaining two degrees in English from University of California, Berkeley, Carla decided to get practical and develop a business based on her skills in editing, technical writing, training, and building compelling business cases.

At this point, Carla has read tens of thousands of technical and financial analyses, coached a range of people from beginning to very experienced technical and financial experts on tightening write-ups, selecting the right data, and building compelling conclusions. Participants say that they still use all the techniques learned even after 20 years.

Her current client list includes the largest financial institutions in the world, the most conservative credit banks in the US, and household technology corporation names.
