Myla DeLoatch is a seasoned facilitator and speaker. She is known for her clear presentation style and ability to engage people at all organizational levels. She has depth and breadth of knowledge in sales, negotiation, leadership development, customer service, communication, thinking skills and professional image management. For over 20 years, she has guided behavioral change in thousands of individuals throughout the United States and across four continents.

People frequently call upon Myla to help them foster stronger communication with their colleagues and customers. Throughout her career, she has worked with a range of organizations: AAA, American Electric Power, Hilton Hotels, NASA, Lidl, LinkedIn, Ret Hat, Zippo, the US Department of Justice, the United States Army, The United Way, and others.

Following college, Myla pursued her passion for fashion and began a career in specialty retail where she held several management positions in boutique clothing and cosmetics. Along with wardrobe styling, merchandise display, and inventory management, she learned to develop customer and employee loyalty.

Myla quickly realized that she enjoyed the people development side of the business as much as its creative aspects, so she returned to school to earn a degree is distributive education. With newfound knowledge in career readiness, Myla worked with high school students to prepare them to enter the workforce and to assist them with job placement and performance. These tasks required that she engage, motivate, and focus her students to craft a plan for their future and follow through.

Her success with career preparation and job placement opened the door for new personal opportunities that led from education to corporate America and securing a position at Xerox.

During her 15-year tenure with that organization, she won ten major sales achievement awards for her work in sales and sales leadership. It was at Xerox that Myla experienced the power of professional and personal development as she participated in countless training programs, conducted sales development sessions, and led work improvement teams.

After a long and successful career, Myla transitioned form Xerox back to her roots in fashion and opened a successful mobile-boutique business and grew a loyal client base.

Not long gone from the corporate arena, Xerox caught her attention again and she rejoined the organization as a contract trainer. Over the course of five years, she facilitated the new-employee curriculum as well as sales, negotiation, and leadership training initiatives.

Myla has since accepted contracts from a range of training companies taught at The George Washington University as an adjunct faculty member.

Myla joined Business Training Works in 2014.

Myla holds dual bachelor’s degrees in distributive education and the business of fashion from the university of Maryland, College Park.

She is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), a designation awarded by the National Speakers Association.

She is also a member of The Association for Talent Development and Xerox-Pioneers.
