"If I could bottle you up and take you with me everywhere, I would! Thank-you for the very impactful, meaningful and powerful session.
I had so many epiphanies about my mindset, how I communicate and what I can do to bring myself closer to branding myself in a way that is consistent with my core values. You are brilliant!
I’ve had the opportunity to participate in many development opportunities throughout my career but none have ever been this valuable to me and on a level that I could really relate with and action."

“I attended the Boost Your Brand-Be Your Remarkable Self public session, for self-betterment and motivation. I was primarily looking for leadership tips to apply to my professional life. The full day session was relaxed, allowed for natural sharing and learning amongst the peer group. I took away meaningful and game-changing insights that were both big and small, and helped me immediately in both my professional and personal life. My self-awareness and confidence has increased significantly and the impact of my time with Dorothy continues to be a catalyst for how I go about my everyday life.”
“I started working with Dorothy by attending a full day public seminar and continue with personal coaching sessions. Before even attending the full day seminar, I thought I had a clear idea of whom I had to be to achieve my career, and personal goals. That changed while working with Dorothy. She pulled me outside of my comfort zone and helped me see who I really am, and what’s important to me. She helped me see how all this is part of my “brand.” I can now apply this to my current role as a leader, when dealing with my clients and in my personal relationships; ultimately helping me grow into being a strong leader. It wasn’t about “changing” who I am, but more about “realizing and understanding” who I am, and making the adjustments needed to show up as my best self. Dorothy has the intuitive skill to cut through the clutter and get to the root of who a person is and what they are doing, then helps them realize how they connect. This knack of hers provided endless “Ah Ha” moments for myself, which in turn helped me truly realize who I am, and how this will help me on my path to be a stronger leader in both my professional and personal life.”

I made the decision to work with Dorothy on two different occasions. The first time was to define my brand and refine my professional presence. The process she took me through had me thinking differently about myself and helped me to present more powerfully. This meant transforming my physical appearance that had me feeling more comfortable in my own skin for the first time in years. The second time around, eight years later, I was looking for a tune-up to more accurately align my evolving brand with a new direction. Through her, Be Your Remarkable Self, process I connected to my most authentic brand and how I want to be known, as an “inspiring visionary.” This time I wasn't questioning who I was, I was clarifying who I am. I came away with a crystal clear focus that speaks to everything I do. It continues to bring a smile to my face every time I think about it. A friend summed it up perfectly after I worked with Dorothy the first time, “It’s not like it is a new you, it is more like the real you.” Thank you for your guidance.

She's an expert Personal Brand Strategist and has helped me immeasurably in the development of my own "Personal Brand" with spot on input and guidance. She has inspired me to transform perceived obstacles into attainable "goals and opportunities - with confidence.

Dorothy we met when I was in transition. I was looking to better understand my place in both the corporate and my personal world. It is with complete certainty that you brought both clarity and focus to what I wanted and who I wanted to be. It took me several years to fully evolve into the personal brand I defined for myself but am convinced that without your help, guidance and sometimes-painful truths, that it would have taken a lifetime. I have become laser focused on what it is I offer to my customers, and more in tune with the needs of my family and friends. As I reflect back on my time with you I am truly thankful you came into my life, and would highly recommend your services to anyone who is looking to better themselves in all facets of their lives.

Dorothy before working with you I was very detached as a leader from the human side of business and more concerned about getting results. I had lost touch with myself and how I felt. I was caught up in “trying too hard” and felt threatened because I was focusing on the wrong things. This created barriers, had me acting defensively and pretending to be a hard ass, not caring about what people thought.
Since being ‘nominated’ for the coaching and working with you I have reconnected to my true self realizing how much I do care about the people I work with and their perceptions of me. I am now more focused on being who I want to be and people around me are responding positively, even those I have had issues with. I treat my staff and colleagues like people first.
I am a much happier person and manager. I can’t thank you enough for the life coaching you’ve provided me. I am very proud of the progress I’ve made. I am determined to continue to grow, learn and be a better, happier me. I know I will think about our conversations for years to come. Thanks for helping me reconnect with myself!

Dorothy, the opportunity to work with you was a gift. It provided me with the "toolkit" to incorporate more effective leadership and decision making skills. Being given the opportunity to utilize these new tools in the development of my own "Personal Brand" with your candid input and effective mentorship inspired me to confidently transform perceived "obstacles and challenges" into attainable "goals and opportunities!" Thank you!

Dorothy working with you had a profound effect on me. I didn't realize how angry I was and how isolated I was becoming. Working through the tough issues has me feeling more sure of myself, more in control, and a much more productive team member. I feel completely new.
Chris McGroarty, Creative Director
Dorothy given the opportunity to work with you helped me to get back in touch with who I really am and what is important to me. Within a short period of time I recognized shifts in all areas of my life. Our work together is a major factor in my renewed sense of self confidence. I couldn't have done it without your warm yet candid approach and it is exactly what I needed to feel secure in being more of who I am. Thank you for your part in guiding me to live my best life.

Dorothy, the receptivity of the team on the benefits of delving into this area of personal growth comes across loud and clear in their comments! I also see your expertise and passion in leading the session(s) has helped everyone get the most out of this training. Our HR Director even asked one of the participants give a quick overview of the session at the company management offsite. I had comments from other managers thanking us for sharing the information and were in agreement with how beautifully it tied into the corporate initiatives around diversity and inclusion. Your content and delivery was perfect for the group...well done!!
