Danielle’s story is unique, compelling and thoroughly inspiring.  The connection with our audience was immediate and the tone and style were a perfect match.  Best of all, the content stood out in a way that was honest and refreshing – a welcome departure from the norm.  Danielle’s is forging a new path, her own path and at the same time blazing a great trail for others to follow.”

“Danielle recently spoke at Smith College to a group of students interested in being entrepreneurs, or at least testing the waters. She was highly engaging, offered wise advice on what to know before you even start, and she ignited an energy in the crowd with her enthusiasm.”

~Iris Newalu, Executive Director, Smith Executive Education for Women

“Danielle spoke during our Women in Leadership event and we could not have been happier with the outcome.  Her session was the perfect mix of artfully presented information, conversational Q & A, and interactive brainstorming exercises.  Our team left the room informed, engaged, and excited, including our CEO.  We’d highly recommend her for any audience, and especially don’t miss her new book!”

~Dave, Director of Org. Dev. And Operations, Network for Good

“Danielle was the keynote speaker for the third workshop in our Ideas Into Action series, a collaboration of the World Bank, IMF and Inter-American Development Bank family associations.  She delivered an engaging presentation designed to help entrepreneurs with limited knowledge of marketing to understand and apply the 4Ps to help them launch their business.  Danielle has the ability to relate to her audience and deliver practical advice in a down-to-earth and non-technical way.  I highly recommend her as a speaker on setting up, running and growing your entrepreneurial business.”

~Suzette Bradbury, Career & Networking Chair of the International Monetary Fund

“Danielle is truly an inspirational speaker.  Her openness to sharing her experiences, both good and bad, and genuine desire to help other women is what impressed me during her talk. Quite a few attendees were inspired to think about entrepreneurship as an option for them and got great tips on how to go about it.”
