TESTIMONIALS and FEEDBACK
"Valerie recently spoke to our female executives at Octagon. Her speech (and book) entitled "How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace" was spot on and so very well received. Valerie has a unique ability to blend research, real-life workplace examples and, most importantly, humor into a relevant and compelling topic. I highly recommend Valerie as a speaker!!"
Lisa Murray, CMO, Octagon
"In a very warm and humorous manner, Valerie speaks openly about the problem - what women are doing to hold themselves back in the workplace. She then provides a solution by giving concrete advice on how women can actually succeed in the workplace. Valerie's presentation on "How Women Can Succeed in the Workplace" is something of value to all women across all industries."
Bernadette J.H. Lawson, Manager of Events and Special Programs, Sedgwick LLP
"Valerie, I can't begin to thank you enough. Your participation was the golden thread that weaved the day into a cohesive event. I have had so much wonderful feedback on the event. It was obvious how much work you put into it, shining the light on the incredible women in history and really allowing for contemporary women's perspectives, and the depth of my appreciation is immeasurable."
DeeJae Cox, Founder, Los Angeles Women's Theater Project and Producer of "Women Making History"
"Valerie Alexander spoke at a Young Professionals Network session at MODEX where I had the pleasure of being the Emcee. She did an outstanding presentation. Her presentation on "How Women Can Be Successful In Business (Despite Having Female Brains)" was obviously provocative, and a little tongue-in-cheek, but very effective and insightful. She was able to connect the 'why' we think the way we do and how we can leverage that to do even better going forward for both women and men. Her passion and happiness are a big plus in how she delivers and connects with the audience. I would highly recommend Valerie for a speaking opportunity."
Ralph Henderson, President, OmniChannel Productions
"Working with Valerie was a great experience. We were lucky enough to have her give a webinar presentation as well as a live talk at our trade show event on "How Women Can Succeed - Despite Having Female Brains". She was the epitome of professional - always on time, prepared and pleasure to be around. Her talk for our webinar was one of the highest rated sessions we have had and was why I brought her back for the in-person talk. Her session was interesting, informative and thought-provoking. I would highly recommend working with Valerie!"
