authentic communication

In 2000, Lou Solomon launched a different kind of communications company in Charlotte, North Carolina.

A self-described “recovering shy person,” Lou believed that no one should settle for being anything less than being their best, authentic self. Her experience with business communication courses left her wanting something more—something real. When she left broadcasting she designed the curriculum, Your Authentic Style, to support and inspire people to find their voice.

Our movement is now two decades in the making. We’ve built a place that encourages people to speak not from who they think they should be, but from who they really are, with courage and daring.

We are a team of passionate industry experts who have honed our ability to draw out the style, stories and insights that make you unique and engaging.

Our work has grown organically into leadership development. We partner with visionary leaders and their teams in our own backyard and across the country who are doing extraordinary work in the world. They are better with Interact on their team, and we are better for them.

Call and stop by for coffee. We’d like to hear your story.
