Far exceeded my expectations.

Working with Dina was effortless. I emailed her information about our sales force, annual meeting and ideas of the outcome we desired. She also did her own background work by learning about Pearl Insurance through our company’s website. I had several specific requests on what our team was expecting, which she took into consideration while forming her discussion with the group. Dina was excellent at putting her knowledge of the company and my requests together to create a discourse that far exceeded my expectations.

A pleasure to work with.

In my role as the chairperson for an event, it was my responsibility to contact a keynote speaker, secure their services and work out the details of an agenda, supporting documentation, travel arrangements, and so on. Dina was a pleasure to work with. Her timeliness in responding to all requests for information was wonderful. She was able to accommodate our conference size, location and audience as requested. Her materials were relevant, timely and provided in advance for the committee to use as approval for licensing requirements, as well as for readying packets for the attendees.

Thank you, Dina!

Dina gave me the tools to save my own life eight years ago. I was between jobs and had no vision of what to do next. As a coach, she encouraged me to dream, helped me to formulate a new plan, and cheered as I put my plan into action. Whenever I have a rough day now, I simply recall her gentle questions and astute observations, and I can empower myself to make the needed changes. Thank you, Dina!
