"I was very fortunate to spend up-close and personal time with some of the “greats” of personal development speakers when we were promoting a new television network way back in the 90’s.  I can state, with conviction, that your presentation style and presence is as professional as I’ve experienced."

What People Saying About the Networking for Success Workshop

“I would like to say a word of praise for our speaker today, Chakisse Newton. I thought she was an incredible, dynamic, energetic speaker with many excellent points and a wonderful way of conveying information. Her points about networking were fresh and were presented in a new, interesting way; I think we all could use the new perspective that she shared. I personally came back with a new value proposition and the resolution to make my "1%" a follow-up after networking at meetings. Chakisse, in my opinion, was by far one of the best speakers we've ever had. Thanks for such a great and informational seminar.”

Daisy Leath
