“Last night’s event was on fire!!! Thank you so much for bringing incredible energy, infectious positivity and such a well developed presentation to our group! It was such an honor and delight to host you this evening, and we are beyond grateful.” 

Ellevate Network, NC Triangle Chapter

It was amazing to watch the team of Deena Baikowitz and Stephanie Cuba deliver their interactive workshops Networking is NOT Optional [to the students and graduates of Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law]. They got their audiences to learn and practice their networking skills on the spot, and the positive changes in those skills were tangible to those observing. You could not ask for more from outside consultants – they were professional, flexible, responsive to our institutional needs and the differing needs of the student and graduate audiences –  we had them deliver two separate workshops –  all while being a true pleasure to work with.
