Recognizing there was a need for business training solutions, keynote addresses, facilitation and professional career coaching, Elise Mitchell partnered with Blake Woolsey to form Executive Communications Consultants (ECC) in 2000. With demand growing, Mitchell Communications Group acquired ECC in 2008 and The Center was born. Today, The Center is staffed with a team of proven leaders and business-performance strategists. We provide customized training, facilitation and executive coaching to some of the world's largest companies and best-known brands. Ultimately, the Center helps develop relationships, elevate reputations and deliver results – which are the principles of being business counselors with communications expertise.
