  • The team was instrumental in making SHAPE the success that it was! I worked most closely with the Logistics Team who were very detail oriented. Carolyn and Jeana have the utmost confidence in the AAE Team, and they were very helpful to me as we were trying to finalize the last few open sessions.
    Maritz Global Events o/b/o AT&T Mobility & Entertainment - Jul 01 2019

  • It went AWESOME!!!!! Geena did such a great job with a powerful message that was packed with interesting insight, stats, research and humor!!!! Our attendees loved the program. And the program went over by 13 minutes or so and the attendees were glued to their seats because of how engaging Geena was.
    The United Way of Greater Atlanta - Nov 10 2017

  • "Geena’s keynote address was truly outstanding and her content was so 'right on' with our theme (change) and relevant with our members. Her delivery was outstanding, extremely genuine and sincere. Her keynote was undoubtedly the ‘buzz’ of the conference. In addition to her keynote address, the VIP Session was very well received. Thank you!"
    Women Presidents’ Organization - Nov 13 2014
