what people say

DeAnnah was hosting a webinar session at the National Resume Writers' Association Conference in September 2020. One thing I noticed is that she gave clear, concise tips on how to increase your chances of landing a job using LinkedIn. After taking her advice, I networked with recruiters from every job I applied for. I highly recommend her training sessions as you will definitely not be disappointed by the tips she provides.

I had the pleasure of working with DeAnnah on a taskforce for a workshop we were putting together for one of my company’s leadership teams. The Workshop was on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and I was impressed by DeAnnah’s ability to command the room and drive automatic engagement with a global executive audience.
