"Valerie and Michele led an inspirational session with our summer interns on how to project       confidence at work. Valerie laid the foundation for interacting and exuding confidence at the boardroom table, while Michele walked us through the etiquette at the dining table – spanning Asian to Western cuisine. Highly recommend this training to prepare individuals for success when it comes to navigating subtle cues and social situations in the business world."

" For one, the summer associates made quite an impact at our Executive Board dinner. So much so, more than a few partners, suggested training for all of our partners - not just the summer group. The program also instilled the confidence our budding young lawyers needed as they begin networking and start to build their law practices and career."
