What Leaders Are Saying About Judith’s Talks

“Hands down one of the best webinars I’ve ever attended. Wow, indeed! Thank you to University of Rochester Women’s Network for hosting this event!”
– University of Rochester


“Wow!!!! I felt compelled to drop you [the business school] a note to say thank you! From just that session, plus the few chapters I’ve read in Judith’s book, I already find myself evaluating my own behaviour-and stopping myself to present my ideas in a better way, and to slow down my pacing, and to stop being self-effacing and deflecting my contributions and to boldly take the stage-all after such a short time! I am shocked by its influence-I knew there would be new lessons to be learned, but am surprised at how impactful it is after one workshop. So thank you for the outstanding opportunity you have provided to mentors and mentees.”
–Edwards School of Business, University of Saskatchewan


“Judith we’ve had overwhelmingly positive feedback from the session with you.  We very much appreciated your valuable insight which will no doubt have a meaningful ROI for my team. We look forward to the publication of Impromptu.”
–Sun Life Executive Session


“It was a delight working with you and the team at The Humphrey Group. We’ve received some great feedback from attendees on the insight you shared in conversation with Kris and new connections made during the discussion portion of the session. Looking forward to another successful event in Montreal next month.”
–Bell Canada


Your interview was so fabulous, your books are going to be flying off the shelf with my group! Your smile is infectious and your confidence is contagious. It was so easy to chat with you and I gained so many golden nuggets of wisdom.  You are gracious and such a role model for confident women.  You embody what you teach and I’m humbled to have had the opportunity to chat with you! I know the women in my membership site “She Is Confident” also loved it!  Thank you, once again, for the online conversation.
–Carla Gradin, She Is Confident workshop


“Thank you very much for spending a few hours at Rotman.  My colleagues and I have heard from many attendees who told us that they learned a great deal from you.  We did too. If there is ever anything which you believe that Rotman can assist you with, please do not hesitate to ask.”
–University of Toronto Rotman School of Business
