Clients and Participants Say…

Melissa was the keynote speaker for the inaugural event for our Women’s Mentoring Network for female students at our college. We asked her to speak on the subject of confidence and courage and she delivered in a major way! Her authenticity resonated with our students. Her ability to relate her own experiences left our students empowered and inspired to tackle challenges in their own personal and academic lives. The positive feedback from our students was still coming in—days after the event was over. I would highly recommend Melissa for any type of customized event where motivation, inspiration, encouragement and leadership are needed. She will not disappoint! ~ R. Jerman, SVP, of Enrollment and Student Services, Wake Tech Community College
