You may have seen Peggy Klaus on national news or popular morning shows. Perhaps you’ve read her advice columns in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, Harvard Business Review, and O Magazine.

Peggy is the author of two best-selling books, BRAG! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It and The Hard Truth About Soft Skills: Workplace Lessons Smart People Wish They’d Learned Sooner.

As one of America’s most sought-after communication and leadership experts, Peggy has spent more than two decades helping thousands of professionals from Fortune 500’s, mid-size companies and start-ups succeed in their jobs. She has also dedicated much of her work to the empowerment of women of all ages.

Taking her message from the boardroom to the classroom, she is a featured guest lecturer at universities including Harvard’s Kennedy School and School of Public Health, Wharton’s Executive MBA Program, U.C. Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and the Public Policy Institute at Georgetown University.

Peggy began her career as an actor and classical singer, earning advanced degrees in drama, speech and theater from the London-based Royal Academy of Music and The Drama Studio. From England she moved to Hollywood, working as a producer, director, and talent coach for actors, comedians, musicians and broadcasters in production for Paramount Studios, Warner Brothers, ABC, CBS, and NBC.

When not working, she can be found enjoying the incredible beauty of Santa Fe, New Mexico where she lives.



I can’t thank you enough for your assistance on my journey. You have really changed the direction of my path as you gave me the tools and confidence in myself to land this awesome role!

Quite simply, Peggy makes a difference with everyone she works with. Whether she’s working with individuals or teams, she always makes them better, and those who are lucky enough to work with her come away with invaluable learning and tips.
Dan Henkle, former President, Gap Foundation & SVP, Global Sustainability

As a woman of color, I am grateful for Peggy’s tireless championing with helping me (and so many others) break through the often double glass ceiling faced by people of color in the corporate workplace. I can’t imagine making a career move or adjusting my career plan without first consulting her.
Karla Martin, Managing Director, Deloitte Consulting
