    After Dorie spoke about networking strategies with our group of recent hires, we noticed groups practicing the models she discussed during the large networking reception we held later that day.
    What great advice and it keeps on giving, as I have referred to her talk myself with several groups since then. Thank you!

    Dorie’s presentation of her book Reinventing You to a standing room only crowd was such a success that we requested Dorie to host another session, which ended up being standing room only, as well.
    Dorie’s effective delivery style and solid command of her book’s message on creating and marketing one’s personal brand was highly engaging.

    Dorie is a dynamic, approachable, and humble presenter who balances stimulating stories with actionable advice. Not every author or thought leader practices what they preach, but Dorie’s recommendations are that much more valuable because they are informed by her own experiences, pivots, and learning. Your next leadership meeting, offsite, or conference would be better with Dorie involved – it’s that simple.
