“Dorothy's presence transformed yet another repetitious day of mediocre slides and accepted wisdoms - to one of thought provocation, engaging purpose and inspiring hope.”
“I worked with Dorothy when she facilitated a group for Management Center Turkey. At the time I was providing personal development services for their faculty team and we all came together to do some group work with Dorothy. I have to say that Dorothy's skill at holding a group, facilitating their journey through areas of both business and personal lives and gently, yet firmly, moving everyone forward was nothing short of awesome. As an NLP Trainer, I'm used to elegant language and building effective relationships with groups - this lady is a true Master of both. What can I say? If you ever get the chance to work with Dorothy, grab it with both hands - in fact, I strongly urge people to MAKE the chance to work with her. You will never regret one minute of it!”
