"Felicia presented a fantastic program designed to develop the meaning and motivation of personal branding to 30 of our aspiring female leaders. That 2 hour time with Felicia still resonates with the team as I constantly hear from those in attendance of the impact that her message provided. The passion, focus, and resilience of Felicia is not easily duplicated and provides an energetic spark to me each time I have the opportunity to come in contact with he."
"I am writing this letter on behalf of Felicia Shakespeare as a testament to her exemplary service we have witnessed over the past two years as Program Director and now as our Executive Advisory Council Chair. Ms. Shakespeare has both increased the visibility and established a collaboration of our core programs with major network organization such as the Obama Foundation, Comcast, Microsoft, and Chicago Public Library. She led the development of the Tech Empowered Conference at our annual Creative Tech Expo, where she curated an amazing panel of Tech Professionals and CTO’s. Felicia is a champion for access and equity for underrepresented people in tech industries. My recommendation is a resounding enthusiasm for any and all opportunities for Ms. Shakespeare to walk in her excellent leadership abilities and expand the horizons for the next generations."
"Felicia's ability to inspire students, faculty, and business partners to achieve greater outcomes is a result of her effective communications, collaborative work approach and productive relationships with senior leadership. Her delivered outcomes of this unique skill set are increased levels of brand awareness, higher customer satisfaction and measurable results for internal and external stakeholders. Additionally, her leadership of two separate events that I attended was exceptionally engaging for panelists and participants. She emanates joy and inclusiveness in all she does."
"Ms. Shakespeare is incredibly smart, passionate, and an absolute pleasure to work with. A natural leader, Ms. Shakespeare contributed immensely to the CLIMB learning community from our very first session. She brings a consistently positive approach and infectious energy, as well as respectful and truly thoughtful insights. I highly recommend her for any position requiring strong leadership skills, exceptional communication, and collaboration. I worked with dozens of teachers while at the children's museum and I can say with certainly that Ms. Shakespeare is exceptional."
"One of the things that I liked about the inaugural “A Purpose Driven Woman” conference was that the size was manageable from a networking standpoint. Although the attendees had different backgrounds and experiences, they shared an idea of transitioning to something else or building on something they started. It made for a very positive and energetic environment."
"If you want to better yourself and be in the company of smart, inspired women, you want to be a part of the “A Purpose Driven Woman” conference. As it relates to starting a business and entrepreneurship, women left knowing that the most important step is to just start, get up every day and learn as much as you can to turn your vision into a reality. There were so many wonderful women in attendance, one of the best experiences was being able to meet and chat with some of the amazing people there. Everyone there was so eager to learn more about becoming a better person. It was an empowering event!"
