June headed the Business Fundamentals class at GA, which I had the pleasure of attending. The education program covered plethora of business information and knowledge; her teaching method of lectures followed by exercises were very effective. Not only did her course cover all of the necessary materials, she had credible guest lecturers, who were industry practicing professionals, giving further valuable insights. Not only did I learn about manifesting an idea to a business, I was able to apply the learnings toward my current profession and workforce. June's class will not only teach you about business, it will excel you in your career.
As a former student of June's in the Business Fundamentals and Tactics course at General Assembly, I can personally attest to her strategic and entrepreneurial abilities. Her keen insights, guidance and skill in strategic business strategy enabled students to take their ideas from ideation to implementation. I was one of the students to launch my product from her course. I am now June's advisee, where I continue to benefit from her strategic and entrepreneurial skills.
June is a sincerely warm, enthusiastic and engaging teacher. She consistently doles out insightful, actionable strategic advice and brings in top quality guest speakers to supplement the course material. She is generous with her time and has extensive knowledge of business strategy. I highly recommend taking a course with June!
June was head instructor for the Business Fundamentals and Tactics course at General Assembly in Winter of 2014. She brought an enthusiasm and empathy to the class that made every student (myself included) feel important and motivated to succeed. Her class was hands-on and activity-based, and she also brought in a number of industry leaders to speak to us about real-world business issues. I would absolutely recommend June as an instructor, mentor, or business partner. Her knowledge, network, and experience would be beneficial to students and business partners alike.
As a solo attorney with a growing practice, I first hired June for a one-on-one business consultant session to advise me on some ongoing issues and questions I had. She offered excellent insight into my business practices and strategies to help improve. She also provided de-stressing tools to implement in my personal time to maintain my focus and health overall. It wasn't long until I hired June again for another one-on-one session and then brought her in for a business coaching "wellness" workshop for myself and my staff of 3. It has been a pleasure having June's insight and advice along the way. Highly recommended!
June Choi is an insightful, practical, and results-driven business adviser. Through her coaching and analysis on my educational programs for institutions, I've received effective tools and creative ideas that helped me become a better presenter to engage and communicate with my audience. She is highly dedicated and motivational and I recommend her without reservation.
June's keen insights steered my startup company in a direction that has since received interest from investors. Without her creative and strategic abilities we would not have had that opportunity. Very thankful for her talents and highly recommend.
I'd been floundering around for 2-3 years on the direction of my business. June helped my find the vision I had buried deep inside and now I'm super excited and producing incredible results with the new direction of my business. Thank you June!
June is a visionary leader with excellent interpersonal skills. She has a real knack for parsing the value out of any experience or statement, and putting that value into action.
June Choi and John Koprowski of CKcm Associates were brought in to help Exploring the Metropolis through a leadership transition. We found her guidance to be strong, informed, detailed and vital. We are now embarking on a strategic plan which includes a programmatic overhaul and refocus, thanks to their expert consultations. Appropriate strategies and protocols are being put in place, and we are excited for the future of our nonprofit arts organization. An added benefit - working with this team was truly a pleasure, despite - or because of? - the challenges of in-depth strategic planning. Highly recommended.
June is a resourceful and innovative advisor for professionals and organizations that are navigating change. At Partners for Arts Education, she provided our board and staff with strategies to make significant and unique agency transformations. June also has the capacity to ask hard questions and to engage players in recognizing their own system roles.
