*CLE approved
After I found a new position, Dena continued to work with me, and made my first six months far less stressful and far more productive than I have ever experienced in a new job and new place. Dena assessed my strengths and “areas of opportunity” and helped me understand situations and circumstances in which I was most likely to fall into unhelpful behaviors. More than that, Dena taught me to find satisfaction in what I do, and I have been more content in this position than ever before in my professional life.

Dear Dena,

I don’t often send a formal thank you for a continuing legal education presentation.

As you know I’ve both given and attended literally hundreds of speeches and CLEs nationally.

Your presentation, “Cracking Confidence – what it is and how to get it” was among the best I’ve ever witnessed in my career. To call it a speech or CLE is a disservice. This presentation was more an inspirational and motivational address.

Your speech was inspirational, practical, visionary and hopeful. It should, of course, be a staple for women’s committees within business and law, but it is also a must for both seasoned and entry level professionals including investors, lawyers and political leaders.

This should be “required reading” for every corporate and legal group striving for a more united and more effective work force and for those inspired leaders who want to offer their team a visionary how-to.

It was a perfect amalgam of your expertise as an executive coach, lawyer and a woman of uncommon common sense. Your business and legal experience was a great touchstone. Confidence and effectiveness would no doubt move up the chart for those who experience this unusually creative presentation.

Please add me to the long list of those offering kudos for an exceptional – and helpful – address.

I hope you will invite me when this speech lands you a national keynote or an upcoming TED talk!
