“Meryl was kind enough to be a keynote speaker at our college's Rising Senior Symposium. On top of an engaging presentation on personal branding, she also worked with the students on developing effective descriptors. There were several light bulb moments where the students realized how critical branding is, and how they should develop their own brands before someone else does it to them. I highly recommend her service to anyone in need of personal branding help.”

As a father of two daughters, my wife and I have struggled to wake that inner fire within themselves.I hope the workshop motivates her and has a similar effect it did for your son.”
