20 years ago, Lou Solomon founded Interact Authentic Communication. Since that time Lou has touched thousands through the method, mission and magic that is Interact. Some of Interact’s dear friends were kind enough to share their thoughts about Lou.
“When I’m in Lou’s presence, I stand straighter, taller and stronger. She zeros in on a person’s best work and invites even more. If you’ve experienced her workshops, then you know what I mean. If you haven’t, then go sign up now! Yes, right this minute. Bring your entire team, it’s transformational. You’ll see people grow right before your eyes!” – Lynne Ingersoll, xplore Leadership
“Lou Solomon is one-of-a-kind. Through the years working with her personally and organizationally, she’s been able to unearth the deepest, most authentic attributes of the people around her leading to breakthrough leadership moments.” – Beth Hernandez, DPR Construction, Leadership Charlotte (Past President)
“Authentic, simple, humble, regal, smart, giving, positive and many more such words come to mind as I think of how I would describe Lou. I have taken advantage of Lou’s teaching and also used her services to expose others on my team to improve their “interaction” with all. We all walked away with a sense of understanding of what we needed to do individually that was lasting. That speaks to impact she has had that is sustainable. I also see her give her time and energy to women development, investing in uplifting them to greater heights by being involved in forums such as Twist. Lou is truly an impactful individual our community is blessed to have, and I am so glad our paths crossed and I got to know her as teacher as well as a friend.” – Swati Daji, Duke Energy
“Lou Solomon changed my life. No exaggeration. And I love her.” – M. Quentin Williams, The Butler Lappert Williams Firm
“We have had the opportunity to work with Lou and her team several times. They are experts in the art of presentations and presentation skills. You always come away with nuggets of wisdom that you and your team can apply. Congrats to Lou, Julie and the entire Interact team on 20 years. Thanks for all you do for our team and more importantly our community. Cheers! ” – Robby Lowe, DPR Construction
“Lou is one of the most genuine and authentic people around! She has such a generous spirit and has supported me and my organization in a number of ways. For Classroom Central, our experience with Interact has been incredibly impactful personally, professionally and to our social bottom line. The results have built new and strengthened existing partnerships with our community and those we serve! Congratulations Lou and Interact on 20 years!” – Karen Calder, Executive Director of Classroom Central
“Lou Solomon, an extraordinary person!!!” – Joanie Philipp, Discovery Place
“Lou’s techniques for helping someone deliver better presentations are transformative! With a focus on the things done right and video to allow the student to see what others are seeing, Lou Solomon has built a one of a kind training center I will always recommend. Personally, Lou is warm, personable and fun to be around. Congratulations Lou on your anniversary! Here’s to many more years to come!” – Helen Griffith, VP of Marketing at S&D Coffee & Tea
“Lou gave me the voice of public speaking. Previously, it was part of my job description. Today, it is one of the great joys of my life. I am grateful for her investment in my life.” – Tony Marciano, President/CEO of Charlotte Rescue Mission
“Lou Solomon is a great storyteller and has the special talent of teaching others how to tell stories with impact. Lou has helped many of Novant Health leaders find and use their authentic voices and I’m personally glad to know her. Congratulations Interact for 20 years of connecting hearts and minds of Charlotte leaders.” – Carl Armato, President/CEO of Novant Health
“Of Lou’s many fine character traits, perhaps my favorite is her magnetism. She draws you in with her intellect, wit, passion and humility, and gives you every reason to work with her time after time. I’m grateful for the investment Lou has made in me both professionally and personally, as a partner and as a friend. Surrounded by a handful of devoted and talented colleagues, Lou has built a tremendously successful business over the last two decades. I’m convinced, however, that the return on investment she prizes most profoundly is when a client is faced with a daunting challenge and, in simplest terms, “nails it.” Nothing makes her day more than seeing others succeed, and that says it all about Lou Solomon.” – Greg Efthimiou, Honeywell
