Angela, I just had my biweekly meeting with my boss and Wow, what an empowering experience that was! I used the strategies we developed in our coaching sessions and I left the meeting feeling very much in control and not deflated like I had in the past! I am feeling really good about what I have been able to accomplish so far and where I am going. Our coaching sessions have really helped me focus and start to be a better planner. Although we’ve only had three sessions, I am already starting to feel like I am creating a better and more successful me!

Inspiring, encouraging, motivational, informative, and humorous–Angela Winfield is everything anyone could ask for in a guest speaker. Our students and staff continued to comment on Angela’s presentation many days after it occurred. We were very fortunate to have Angela present to our Cornell University students in the Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives. I’ll always remember how the students were seated and ready to hear her message way before the presentation was scheduled to begin. There were many questions and answers afterwards from students and staff. I can truly say everyone who attended Angela’s presentation benefitted from what she had to say. We are forever grateful to Angela Winfield and look forward to having her back for another presentation at Cornell!

– Vanessa Lillard, Cornell University

Angela’s presentation was outstanding. The information she provided was life-changing for many of the 150 women who attended this year’s conference, per their feedback. She was one of the most inspirational women who spoke at the conference. Her combination of knowledge, talent, and unique ability to connect with attendees encouraged women to set and achieve significant goals. In addition, she served as a member of the team that helped design this annual conference to ensure that the content is relevant to our goal of inspiring women to live in and on purpose.

Your extraordinary ability to overcome your disability is moving and a true testament to your ability to constantly endeavor. Though I do not have any disability, your remarkable story really challenges me to strive for more in my own life and reminds me that obstacles are meant to be overcome. An inspirational life is meant to inspire and you’re doing just that.

– K.S. Dunna

I do not have a disability, none-the-less your story inspired me and added to the mental hope chest I carry with me everywhere I go. To me the story was just as much about looking fear into its eyes and not blinking first, as it was about overcoming obstacles.
