I worked for the local power company and had 10 offices. The company had Porter come in and do a presentation about being more organized and it sure helped me a lot. I would highly recommend her. She was full of energy and easy to listen to.


Porter is knowledgeable and friendly. She uses tools and processes that make sense, and meets people where they are at when it comes to creating an organized and productive space!

I am fairly organized with calendars and emails, but my inbox starts filling up like a ship taking on water, and task flags claiming my defeat! Porter Knight walked me through my outlook calendar, email, and task flags with settings, tips, and speedy clicks! I have an empty inbox! My tasks are done! And I have an hour to spare!!! This one session was so much more than what I could have imagined! Thank you, Porter!

Vocational Counselor

Porter’s Advice is useful and immediately helpful. What I learned about multi-tasking has been invaluable. I heard Porter speak years ago and it is still valuable and still impacts my performance to this day!

Small Business Advisor

My work with Porter Knight has been invaluable. Her ability to get what makes me tick and personalize strategies for my needs was phenomenal. Before Porter’s help, I was having trouble managing all my emails, but she helped me reorganize and “tackle” the email process in a way that is incredibly freeing. I also appreciate the techniques she suggested to help me feel less overwhelmed and be more productive.

Hospital Executive

Porter is an engaging and thoughtful presenter and I was thrilled to see her on our conference schedule again. I use tips that she offered several years ago and now have several new take-aways to incorporate into my work environment.

Human Resources Manager

Our organization has had Porter present twice to our group – the first time was focused on organization and improving productivity and we have members 3 years later who have shared that the presentation changed their life when they learned how to do their email! We brought Porter back to focus on Overcoming Perfectionism and had such a wonderful experience engaging and reflecting on how perfectionism affects ourselves and our organizational culture and how a growth-mindset instead of perfectionism helps individuals personally and the organizational culture. Absolutely Amazing!

Business Manager

I so enjoyed meeting this week with Porter learn amazing strategies to make my professional and personal life feel more productive, lighter and happier. I am practicing it all and it feels amazing. I’m more inspired, motivated and feeling less stuck than ever before and am moving forward with a new sense of who I am and what I can accomplish thanks to Porter at Productivity Vermont. I highly recommend Porter and her skills, strategies and knowledge for any company, individual, entrepreneur, business owner or anyone that wishes to positive change their life.

Many, many years ago you did a lecture at the school where I worked and you offered a tip to prevent becoming overrun by incoming mail. I’ve used your suggestion for 20 years and wanted to thank you for how well it works! I’ve also passed it on to friends.


Your presentation was informative and impactful, it is still fresh on my mind.

Without exaggeration, this is the best evidence-based business coaching I have ever received. She really understood my specific challenges with organization and productivity. With interpersonal warmth and the precision of a laser, she targeted the key issues where I needed help, and devised sustainable strategies to dissipate the fog of procrastination. Highly recommended!

It really is a process of re-wiring my thoughts and I just didn’t see it before. You ask a lot of important questions and you did make me work hard –but it was actually just what I needed to move forward from where I have been stuck.

I can’t tell you how much you helped me. I could really get what you were saying as we went through the paper processing and it really stuck.

It was AMAZING being a client of yours yesterday on a one-on-one basis and I absolutely admire your work! No wonder everyone here speaks so highly of you. I can already feel the mental improvement your organizing tips have contribute to my workday. I appreciate all your tips and I will continue to implement them in my work.

I have used Porter Knight on a couple of occasions, the last being more than ten years ago, but I can still hear her voice, giving me guidance and confidence. She is a pro!


Everywhere I’ve been since your presentation, I’ve run into people talking about the training, all with rave reviews – people really enjoyed your session! My favorite comment spoke to the fact that while you hit on some really big and important topics like leadership, you also got really into the weeds with specific tactical advice. Thank you.
