“When I think of Deena, that old tune, “You’re the Top”, immediately comes to my mind. I have had the great privilege to work with Deena as partners for bar association events and to be countered among her clients. My greater privilege is that I call Deena “friend.” Her energy, incessant upbeat personality, and the ideas that she generates – like fireballs swooping out of her vast, creative brain – always inspires me and never cease to leave me in awe. As a networking and career coach, Deena has the insight to quickly ascertain her client’s strengths and capabilities, which allows her to chart the best course for her client to achieve her/his career and networking goals. Whether it is to forge the best career path, improve the LinkedIn profile or social media presence, or create a larger presence in the professional community, Deena is the one to be your guide.”

Deena is an amazing sounding board and has incredible ideas. She supported me through the launch of my new solo practice with inaugural video seminars / networking events, she helped me clarify my firm’s vision and marketing strategy, and she helped me land a wonderful press opportunity about my business and my story. She’s a dynamo and hysterical, and I recommend her 100% as a coach, speaker, workshop leader, podcast guest – and friend.
