Erica's keynote speech at a corporate women's event sponsored by KPMG proved to be truly informational and completely eye-opening. She has a way of presenting content that makes you understand another view point with ease. Her ability to ignite passion and energy into a room is unmatched. The missing conversation across generations was unveiled as Baby Boomers and Millenials alike were engaged in honest conversation with each other to result in upward and onward thinking for improved corporate effectiveness.
Last week, I attended the Women’s Leadership Summit on the Business of Social Media where Erica gave the keynote speech. I was extremely impressed by her ability to captivate an audience of female leaders from a variety of major companies. Erica does a great job explaining connectional intelligence using case studies, while proving that the concepts relate to situations everyone faces in the workplace. She even ended her speech with a bit of Bollywood dancing! I was pleased to hear other attendees say they planned to follow up with Erica about consulting opportunities.
I heard Erica speak at the Wharton Women Business Conference, one of their biggest events with over 200 people registered to attend. Her take on empowering women, specifically in business, was more than just inspiring. Her analysis was personable and her advice actionable. I distinctly remember her encouraging the women in the room to simply raise their hand higher - like most men do - instead of just holding it at shoulder height when they have something to say. From discussing basic game changers like hand raising, to the intricacies of how to manage coaches, mentors and sponsors, Erica contributed her expertise and excitement to truly enhance the conference.
Erica gave a thought-provoking and interactive presentation at the StartingBloc Institute for Social Innovation (New York, June 2013). Erica energized the group with her remarks and activities on Connectional Intelligence and showed how the Fellows could use the concept and exercises in their own work. It was especially wonderful for the group to hear from another StartingBloc Fellow who participated in the Institute years before and had gone on to develop an impressive career.
Erica was the keynote speaker at our 7th annual Women in Shared Services and Outsourcing event in NYC. She was excellent in all respects. Erica is a dynamic, thoughtful speaker. I would recommend her to any business with multi-generational work force.
I had the privilege of introducing Erica's workshop "Unlocking the Power of Connective Intelligence" for the WISE conference (Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship), which is sponsored by the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University. Erica easily engaged a diverse audience of women entrepreneurs with the topic of harnessing the ever increasing potential for connection of people and ideas in today's technologically advanced world. A lively and engaging discussion occurred with her use of an exercise that involved reflection and interpersonal interaction about how well each of us combines and connects information, people, and ideas. I would highly recommend her as a keynote speaker or workshop leader; her innovative concepts and intuitive interpersonal style make for a powerful presentation that is all about changing the world at work.
We received extremely positive feedback on Erica’s keynote presentation on Millennials. She delivered an informative, compelling session and captivated the audience with her energetic, dynamic delivery. Thank you for an outstanding presentation!
Erica delivered a very inspiring, powerful and passionate presentation to our members . I strongly believe that people walked away from the keynote speech with specific action plans to accelerate their career and I would hire Erica again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Erica!!
