WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
As a speaker, Daphne engages the crowd in a way that leaves the audience hanging on to every word. Daphne's spirit and energy are unparalleled.
I will follow her to the end of the earth because I know that anything that she is a part of - it will be phenomenal.
When she puts her mind to something, consider it done.
- Kristen C., Learning and Development Director, PBS
Daphne is fantastic at working within a group setting - somehow, she made it feel like she was speaking one-on-one with you instead of to 20 people!
One of the things I also appreciated was that Daphne has the ability to break down complex subject matter and explain it in simple terms. I never felt lost and certainly felt comfortable asking questions! Plus she's got a very joyful, upbeat personality, so, the training was a lot of fun. I plan on attending other training events she hosts in the future and I highly recommend her services.
- Carolina M., CEO | I.N.H.C.
Daphne is a DYNAMIC, engaged, and thorough speaker! I recommend Daphne's services wholeheartedly, and look forward to participating in future training sessions!
- Nenelwa T., Fulbright Scholar at University of Mpumalanga
“Pure Energy. Daphne Valcin is a terrifically insightful motivator, speaker, and leader. She approached our group of young women with purpose and grace. Her open, fun, and spirited personality made each student feel comfortable and ready to receive information of empowerment and vision. I highly recommend her services….5 STARS! She is truly a gift sent to inspire and uplift all!”
- Dr. Natalie Boulware, Coordinator of Young Women Aiming Higher
"Daphne came in to initially work with my board on a number of issues that had been preventing our team as a whole from reaching its goals. Daphne was punctual, personable, and knowledgeable and connected with the entire team. She developed, led, and demonstrated team-building exercises that helped our newly formed team engage and open up to one another in ways we could not believe. She helped us to stay focused, design a strategic plan, and understand we must set realistic goals based on time, human capital experience, and performance.
We are so happy with the service Daphne provided. The knowledge, tips, and resources have helped us tremendously and for that we are forever grateful! I highly recommend Daphne to work with any nonprofit as she is the best I have encountered thus far!"
