    Deborah Ivanoff, The BEING Coach, May 22, 2018, Upgrade Your Operating System: Prevent Emotional Programming From Hijacking Your Success As A Woman In Tech, PDXWIT, Portland Women in Technology.

    “Our organization, PDXWIT, had the pleasure of hearing Deborah present one of our monthly lightning talks. These talks are 3 minutes, which can be a challenging time frame for some speakers. However, we were amazed at what Deborah was able to accomplish.

    The audience was very engaged and interested in what Deborah was sharing. Her topic was relevant, and she was very poised and eloquent throughout. She left us intrigued– wanting to learn more and dig in, which we think is an ideal outcome for a lightning talk!

    We highly recommend Deborah in her ability to educate and wow the crowd, even when she has only a few minutes to do so.”

    “LOVED the sense of relief and centering around a subject that usually brings fear & frustration” Grace LaConte


    “The training at the beginning was AWESOME! I have been to a lot of cold-calling seminars and none of them explained cold-calling in the way that you did, which honestly helped me immediately re-frame the process. I will admit it right here and now – I have NEVER liked cold-calling. Networking? Love it. Cold calling? Hate it. But now I’m actually excited to pick up the phone. Seriously good reframing job you did. (And you can quote me.)”
    Mark Hiatt, President, Your Networking Universe
