Client reviews

  • I had never given much thought to the impact generations have in the workplace — on the way we give and receive  feedback, the way we communicate, and our openness to  new and innovative ideas. After meeting with Raven once, we  knew she was something special. She approaches leadership  through the lens of generations and provides clear and  tactical examples of how each generation is motivated and how they want to be led. This information is pure gold! After  the success of her first talk, “Closing the Generational Gap,” with our organization, we brought her in a second time to speak to “Generational LED Languages in the Workplace.” Raven’s energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge invite the listener  to join her on a journey through time and it’s a journey you don’t want to miss!”

  • Raven was such an impactful speaker at our all-employee meeting. In just a 20 minute presentation, she was able to engage/connect with us in a personal way, further our

    thinking (beyond a surface level) of what it really means to be an ALLY (which, by the way, she taught us is not a noun but a verb), and give us practical, tangible models and tactics

    for HOW to live our lives in allyship. She is extremely warm and spirited, which means she captivates and inspires the audience — but she is not just an entertainer. She is also a

    gifted teacher and educational guide. We learned more from her in 20 minutes than we have gotten from other speakers in day-long workshops! Simply put, she is a brilliant speaker and


  • I was so impressed with Raven’s presentation. I’ve had the privilege to speak around the globe for the last 15 years and I’ve heard and seen many talented speakers, and Raven is clearly one of the best! She provided an incredibly compelling message on a topic that can be contentious. Raven is credible, engaging, authentic, and approachable, and that is a tough combination to find in anyone!

    My mind was spinning with all the organizations and companies that need to hear her message and engage her. I am thankful for her inspirational message and commitment to helping all of us do better.

  • After hearing Raven speak for just 10 minutes, I knew she was the perfect speaker to open our largest event of the year — our Holiday Showcase at Association Forum. She delivered an engaging, insightful, and actionable presentation that resonated …it felt like it was created just for us!

    Raven’s natural ability to communicate complex and challenging subject matter in a way that cultivates empathy, spurs personal reflection, and inspires openness across differences made my members feel comfortable enough to lean in, yet inspired enough to grow. Her expertise, coupled with her dynamic and engaging presence captivated us all. We laughed, we connected, we reflected, we cried. The journey of learning that Raven took us on in such a short time was nothing short of masterful.

    If you are looking for a speaker to capture the attention of large audiences along all stops of the journey to inclusion… to create a safe, and even fun, space for learning, growing, and becoming increasingly inclusive, Raven is it! We have already rebooked her twice.
