We’d love to hear from you!


    I have worked with Mary Beth for many years and brought her to my new employer to help with sales training. Our staff instantly was able to connect with her with proven success. I have worked with her of a variety of engagements and she has consistently exceeded my expectations time and time again.

    Mary Beth and I serve as directors on the premier business association in our region, the Bridgeport Regional Business Council. She was also the chair of the search committee that hired me to become BRBC’s CEO. She is a great facilitator and is sought after for her Human Resources skills and experience. She has a delightful personality and is an extremely valuable resource to me on a host of management issues. It is a distinct pleasure interacting with her professionally.

    Aquarion Company has utilized the services of Mary Beth Nelsen and The Right Resource for training and development seminars and managerial coaching. On all fronts her performance was superb. Her professional development programs are inspired, with participants fully engaged. She is both committed and caring, and delivered an exceptional return on our investment.

    I have had the privilege of working with Mary Beth Nelsen since 2015. She has presented and moderated nearly 20 events for our Business Association. All receiving rave reviews. Her delivery is smart and often humorous which serves to put an audience at ease – especially for interactive programs. She really has mastered the art of story-telling to the point that it doesn’t feel like you are in a program or at a seminar to book-learn but that you are there to life-learn. Both our corporate and small business audiences truly look-forward to the programs in which we engage Mary Beth’s skills and services.
