“Theresa has an amazing, unique speaking style because she talks with the familiarity and ease of your best friend, if only your best friend gave such brilliant advice! Her openness in sharing her own life experiences allowed me to connect with her message and see situations in my own life where her discoveries could be really helpful. Aside from the bounty of useful advice, Theresa knows how to have fun. She was hilarious! I found myself laughing out loud alongside the rest of the audience because her delivery was infused with humor, which kept it very enjoyable and lighthearted.” – Angela Sauro-Davis, President, Sunrise Chapter, American Business Women’s Association

“Thank you for being with us throughout the day at our Second Annual Conference for the Council of Professional Women in Banking and Finance. Your message as our concluding speaker really resonated with the attendees and, through your humor and straight talk, made a lasting impression on them. Many have told us what they are going to do to change their lives as they take your message to heart.” 
- Kathleen Murphy, President/CEO, Maryland Bankers Association

“Your keynote presentation at the CREW Richmond 2014 Leadership Summit was exactly what I had hoped for when we selected you to headline our event! You were inspiring, relevant, and full of energy! We loved your ideas reminding us that what we do is our choice, and about how we have the power to bring joy to our lives. You were a pleasure to work with- agreeing to not only be our keynote featured speaker, but also presenting a workshop on Time Management and also facilitating a discussion with our panel of extraordinary women. Your rapport with the audience was fantastic- you have a knack for getting everyone engaged. Thank you for all you did to make our Leadership Summit such a success!” – Sandra Rhodes Whitehead, CREW Richmond 2014 Chapter President
