What organizations and clients are saying:“Dr. Gaillour recently conducted a seminar for the Paul Merage School of Business’s Third Annual Executives Conference. Her presentation was excellent and engaging. The content was filled with practical tools and techniques which I was able to apply immediately. She was an engaging leader and knowledge expert. I would highly recommend Dr Gaillour to any physician looking to move from clinical practice into the management world.”—Daniel Cusator, MD, MBA, CMO, Providence Health Services“Your insightful comments [on leadership] provided a solid framework for the day . . . a very successful program . . . attributable in great part to your participation.” —Dr. David Lerman, Kaiser Permanente Board of Directors

“Francine presented at our health care executive symposium for UC Irvine and was excellent in giving us more input as to how we can implement our MBA status as health care professionals. She worked with us via various exercises that allowed us to further analyze our strengths and weaknesses as well as how to introduce ourselves in the world of business. I would highly recommend her services for others. She is professional, kind, and very knowledgeable.”

Ati Hakimi, MD, MBA, VA Medical Center, Salinas, CA

“Your presentation more than lived up to our expectations. Your powerful insights in this arena were a wonderful lesson in real world experience. They will enable [us] to act more effectively as a force inspiring clinicians to lead change.”

—Dr. David Masuda, University of Washington

“The Physician Executives of Georgia had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Francine Gail lour speak to the group on the topic “Authentic Leadership: It’s Personal” at our March meeting. Drawing from her own experience as a practicing physician, as well as working with numerous physicians going through transitions, she was able to identify key strategies that were applicable to all of us.

She kept the topic exciting, and built in enough “audience participation” to keep the attendees engaged. The evaluations returned by the physicians after the session were uniformly positive, with interest expressed by many for a follow up workshop with Francine in the future. I am happy to recommend her, either to individuals in need of coaching, or to groups looking for a talented speaker who delivers the goods on personal leadership development! ”

—David N. Westfall, MD, CPE, President, Physician Executives of Georgia

“Your keynote presentation was quite well received and was an appropriate and timely topic…..especially since so many of the audience are in the middle of developing an integrated system. I especially enjoyed the two hour session with the medical directors in the morning. The topics you raised were of clear high value….I think especially for this group where the degree of formal leadership training is limited/variable.”

—Christopher M. Mathews, M.D., Corporate Medical Director Community Health Plan of Washington

“We really appreciated your ‘rallying’ the docs . . . we were inspired to move forward with conviction . . . your engaging and humorous manner, along with your experience, is great for serious healthcare providers.”

—Dr. Peter Springsteen, Medical Director IS, Munson Healthcare
