Angelina is very detail-oriented, personable, and fun to work with. Her content and delivery were accessible and relevant to our students, and she made the concept of personal branding actionable with clearly defined action steps for them to pursue. It was particularly helpful that she included images and examples that were diverse and creative to drive her points home. I would highly recommend Angelina for your next professional development workshop, presentation, or keynote!Tiffany Waddell Tate, Assistant Director, Career Development at Davidson College
