“Dorie is a true inspiration to everyone with whom she speaks and to the very principle of personal reinvention. We had the honor of Dorie speaking a couple times to the IBM Communications team — on the topic of personal and professional reinvention. Not only has she intellectually challenged each of us, she created a solid foundation for action and for individual and team improvement. We would highly recommend her to others!"

  • Ray Day, Chief Communications Officer, IBM

“Dorie has a unique ability to take what can be an esoteric topic – leadership brand – and make it both practical and meaningful. She gave our employees useful tools to build their brand throughout their career and did it in a fun way.”

  • Mark Lagestee, VP, Global Talent and Organization Development, Yum! Brands (Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut)

“Dorie Clark recently spoke to my team at Google about building your brand as a leader and how to ensure that others are clear on the value you bring to the table. She offered tangible ideas on how to think about career development, personal branding, and bringing your authentic self to the workplace. My team absolutely adored Dorie and was highly engaged and grateful to have such a dynamic and relatable speaker.”

  • Jessica Simmons, Director, Customer Success, Google

“Dorie's presentation of her book Reinventing You to a standing room only crowd was such a success that we requested Dorie to host another session, which ended up being standing room only, as well. Dorie's effective delivery style and solid command of her book's message on creating and marketing one's personal brand was highly engaging."

  • Patience Marime-Ball, Former Head, Banking on Women, International Finance Corporation, World Bank Group

“Dorie Clark has important advice for people navigating the turbulent waters of jobs and careers.”

  • Robert Reich, former US Secretary of Labor

“Dorie Clark has had an outsize influence on people trying to break through in their careers. She has helped talented people overcome barriers of indifference to find lives of purpose that they love. She has also been a pioneer in the world of “create-your-own way" careers, using creativity and candor throughout."

  • Professor Rita McGrath, Columbia Business School and Top 5 Worldwide Business Thinker

“Dorie is a dynamic, approachable, and humble presenter who balances stimulating stories with actionable advice. Not every author or thought leader practices what they preach, but Dorie's recommendations are that much more valuable because they are informed by her own experiences, pivots, and learning. Your next leadership meeting, offsite, or conference would be better with Dorie involved – it's that simple.”

  • Andrew Stern, Director of Special Programs, Wharton Alumni Club of New York
