Eleni Daniels Manager of Annual Appeal for MMC, Office of Institutional Advancement, Marymount Manhattan College
Ginny, thank you very much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to be a part of last night’s panel discussion at MMC. Everyone, including guests, students, faculty and staff members, was delighted with the event and felt the panelists and moderator did an excellent job in covering a most expansive and critical subject area. Thank you for sharing your insight and your personal story that led to your success. Your warm and unique way of communicating with people brought a special element to panel discussion. Students need role models, like you, to help them pave their own success track. I am one of your greatest fans!
Brenna Sheenan Mayer President, Women In Development
On behalf of the membership of Women In Development, we would like to thank you for your excellent talk on networking…. This was the first time that our luncheon program was designed to encourage the active engagement of our members with each other… Your energy and enthusiasm were instrumental in achieving their full participation in the exercises you so skillfully presented. We are delighted that you have agreed to write an article for WID. I know how much it meant to us to learn …the techniques you suggested….. Thanks for so kindly sharing your expertise with Women In Development.
Mary M. McNally Director of Membership, New York Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Inc.
Thank you for your gracious participation, enthusiasm and superb contribution to the success of the New York Buys program. I could not have been more pleased. Your preparation and presentation were most professional and, as a result, our attendees gave the workshop high marks for both content and form.
Julia N. Bryant Public Affairs Officer, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
You literally turned the event around. I will have all future speakers speak from the back end of the room, that way latecomers won’t interrupt. Yet another good idea you have given me.
Polly Nash Real Estate Manager, Philadelphia inquirer/Daily News
Thanks for speaking at our 69th Annual Classified Advertising Managers Association conference in Burlington, VT. You helped us reach new heights in creativity in all aspects of our job responsibilities. We were able to bring back some powerful sales tools and revenue building ideas we can put to use right away! Ginny, thanks again for helping to make our meeting a success!
Lori Schwab Program Chair, Cocktails & Conversations, New York Women In Communications, Inc.
You were a smash! The evaluations were unanimous!

I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation today at the WIDNY [Women In Development] luncheon. I wish they could all be like yours. . . . I especially liked your “story” suggestion, which really does humanize the whole process.
Patricia Abrams Assistant, Major Gifts and Annual Fund, AMFAR
I just wanted to write to let you know that I really enjoyed your speech at the Women In Development luncheon yesterday. I like hearing all the personal stories that you told and advice that you offered based on your experiences. I read your “True Networking With Class: 10 Quick Tips” on my way home yesterday and really found them interesting and will be useful in my future. As a 23 year old just starting my career in field development, I truly value guidance from successful women like yourself. Best of luck for your continued success.
Barbara Morgan Programs, Women In Development
Ginny’s presentation [as keynote] was so powerful that in its own subtle way it changed the entire dynamic of our Women in Development weekly luncheons. Brava!
Beverly Savage Programs, Barnard Business Professional Women
Left you a phone message, but must say it again. You did such a wonderful job last night; what a strong presenter you are! What great observations you have about women and the workplace. Even women who receive wonderful educations (like we did) need encouragement and help along the way. Thanks a million for sharing your guidance and wisdom with us.
Allison H. Bilotta Professional Development Committee, International Furnishings And Design Association
Thank you for your enthusiastic and informative presentation on the “Art of Small Talk”. You truly lived up to all of the wonderful things we had been told about you, and there was no mistaking the groups’ positive reaction to the information you shared with us….

Ginny is incredible! An amazing storyteller and educator who speaks from the heart. I will be brief, speak in the present, set goals and know [my] brand.
Maureen Matthews - President, North Shore Women’s Club
Your communication’s program, “Body Language” was interesting, informative, and “down to earth.” Many thanks for your delightful presentation.
Kathy Boulukos - Philoptochos President, Philoptohos Regional Conference
Well, you were fabulous, and everyone thought you were terrific!!!! Your references to religion were good, too, and I know you put in a great deal of time and effort to put the talk together. All agreed that you were inspiring, informative and a terrific speaker. I am really grateful that you did it!!!

Cynthia McConnell - Meeting Professionals International
Thank you for delivering a fantastic presentation on “10 Ways To Make Powerful, Persuasive, Polished Presentations”. The information shared was timely and highly appreciated.
Tanya M. Sweetie NYT Networking Event
As an attendee of the networking seminar last night, I would like to thank you for the tips you shared, particularly the one regarding telling a story about yourself. Your story of success, punctuated by how hard you tried until you triumphed, was right on track for me. I came home, located my undergrad rough draft business plan for my fashion and image consulting business, and started talking to my co-workers, sharing my story. I plan to use your advice to help make ANS Style Group a success story. Thank you!
Paula Morris - Professor of Marketing, Salisbury University
I loved learning the vocabulary I need to help foster further growth for myself and my students. I’ll stop using “elevator pitches,” and start using stories/brand statements.
