Quotes from the last event:
“Thank you so much for your interest in helping military veterans as they transition from military service to civilian occupations. I found your presentation not only informative but pertinent and stimulating. The personal brand information, especially aligning and leveraging a personal brand, will definitely be useful for our clients.”
– Christina S., JBLM, AACAP
“I cannot say enough about the program and how appreciative I am that you gave up most of a day to help us in becoming an asset that employers will want on their team. I feel that this training gave insight into the world of consumer based business, not just Nordstrom. This training will, in my opinion, help soldiers acquire employment.”
