Training and Development

Women's Summit spring 2019

Members of the first Women’s Summit, held spring 2019. We were 60 strong!

Gen testimonialBetty is a an engaging speaker, who was able to connect with everyone attending our leadership conference. We received wonderful feedback about her presentation and subsequently invited her to speak at multiple events and conferences. Following the conference, attendees continued to tell us how effective her communications strategies were when implemented at work and in their daily lives. Whether you are looking for a trainer focused on communication or an energetic keynote, I wholeheartedly recommend Betty. ~  Genevieve O’Sullivan, former chair,  Interagency Committee for State Employed Women (ICSEW)
