TESTIMONIALS:

Good Morning America‘s Tory Johnson National Spark and Hustle Tour

“Erica came to speak for our professional organization: The Women’s Entrepreneurial Exchange delivering her “Top 10 Secrets To Business Success” – and it was an outstanding success indeed. The feedback was exceptionally positive. Even with the time constriction, Erica was able to deliver so much quality content, leaving the women in the audience writing down all the numerous tips and strategies that they could immediately implement into their businesses. And the proof is that they have!! We just received yet another call from someone who has moved to action because of Erica.

Erica Diamond is inspiring, uniquely generous with her information and in her quest to help women and budding entrepreneurs of all levels. The best thing about Erica is she does it with so much heart. The audience really feels the passion for what she does and the message she shares, along with the genuine interest in their success. It was truly a pleasure, and we look forward to the opportunity to have her return.

Thank you, Erica on behalf of all of us at The Women’s Entrepreneurial Exchange… we wish you much continued success.” ~Sarena Miller, The Women’s Entrepreneurial Exchange 2011

“We had the pleasure of working with Erica Diamond whom we booked to speak about women’s work/life balance at our 2010 show. Erica is an excellent speaker who presents herself as sophisticated and polished on stage.She was very pleasant and engaging and connected with our core audience of women. It was fantastic to add Erica to our Centre Stage line-up and we highly recommend her as inspiring, entertaining and appealing speaker at any event that wants to reach out to women.We congratulate Erica for all her accomplishments and incredible achievements and were delighted to have such a hard-working woman at our event.”~Lisa Spodek, Marketing Director, The National Women’s Show

“Erica facilitated the 2nd Annual Montreal Women in Business Luncheon, an event hosted by the Women in Leadership Foundation and sponsored by TD, as Master of Ceremonies. The theme of the event was: “Small business: passwords to success”. She did an outstanding job tying three very different talks, which were delivered by accomplished speakers, into a well-rounded presentation. Erica, being an extremely accomplished and award-winning entrepreneur and speaker herself, exhibited the knowledge, experience and energy to moderate this panel of diverse personalities in her own sophisticated, yet personable way. She added her own experiences and lessons learned on her way to success, thus perfectly rounding off the panel and leading into an engaging Q&A session. Her contribution was a major factor leading to the success of this luncheon.

Erica has an amazing ability to capture, motivate and inspire the audience with a combination of her freely sharing information and her genuinely dynamic and polished demeanor. She does not stop and rest on her many accomplishments, but always works hard to achieve her next goal. We wish her continued success in her future endeavors and hope she will have many more chances to inspire women everywhere! ~ Katrin Dinkel, Women in Leadership Foundation, Montreal Chapter, 2011

“Having Erica Diamond as a Speaker for our Women In Business Luncheon was an easy choice to make as she is a delightful woman with an inspiring story to tell. Her personable approach gave everyone in the audience the ability relate to her, and yet at the same time, still received the powerful and concrete tips and tools to take away and implement into their lives immediately. Erica’s energy, storytelling abilities, and dynamic presence makes her not only an outstanding and motivational speaker, but an overall remarkable woman!” – Amrita Pannu, Women in Leadership Foundation, 2010

“Erica came to speak for our organization, The Womens Entrepreneurial Exchange (WE2), sharing her experience and knowledge on the topic of sales and marketing. Erica is a vivacious woman with contagious energy and amazing success! She is a woman with drive and passion – who makes things happen, and shares her message of “you can too!” Her warm spirit makes her very accessible and down to earth, welcoming any questions. Thank you Erica , for inspiring us, and sharing so many “real-world” tips and techniques for not giving up and persisting through the sales process. The ladies learned many things we could immediately take away and put into practice, to improve their sales figures.

We wish you continued success on your wonderful mission to inspire other women to take the reins, and to follow their passion.” ~Sarena Miller, The Women’s Entrepreneurial Exchange 2010

On Monday, April 23, 2102 The Mount Sinai Hospital Foundation held it’s 2nd annual Sinai’s Six in the City – Fashion filled Fundraising event. The event was a resounding success in part because it was given an added boost at our opening breakfast by Keynote Speaker, Erica Diamond. Erica inspired and encouraged the audience to find and unlock their passion and live with purpose. Knowing how well we get caught up in the selfless cycle of motherhood, career, marriage and life – Erica summarized the importance of not getting lost within that and gave the 100 women attendees, powerful takeaway tips to implement into their lives. Her capacity to hold the audience with a powerful message of self-worth and self-cultivation resonated in a most meaningful way. Erica is an exceptional motivational speaker. Her warmth and genuine drive to help others find their vision is palpable the moment she steps on stage. ~Kara Maritzer- Mount Sinai Hospital Foundation

“I heard you speak in Newfoundland on Work/Life Balance. After the event, I came home and downloaded your book from Amazon to my Kindle. I love it! Thanks Erica for such an inspiring conference. I will be open to anything.” ~Sandra Shiner

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Erica helped me establish a clear vision of what I wanted – from myself, from my work and for my future. What struck me most about working with Erica is that even though we never met in person (we worked via Skype), speaking to her was like speaking to a true friend with my best interest in mind. She was quick to grasp what I had trouble envisioning and her insight really helped put me on the right path to success..” ~Mona Andrei

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“The second speaker of the day who blew me away with an on-point quotable was Erica Diamond of Women On The Fence. Erica spoke about the danger of comparing ourselves to other women–that when we are convinced that they have it all together and do it all, we aren’t looking at the whole picture. The way she summed it up blew me away:

“We compare our very worst to somebody else’s very best.”

Wow. That is so true, isn’t it? Haven’t you ever looked at a mom’s public game face on her very best day, and found yourself comparing it to your worst private moments? How unfair to ourselves–and inaccurate, too. I wonder how that mom would feel comparing HER worst moments to YOUR best?

Nobody has it all together. Nobody does it all. Nobody is such a hero that they change the world in a fell swoop overnight.

It’s all of us, putting one foot in front of the other day after day, who are able to live our own best lives and change the world.

Thanks for the reminder, Erica!” ~Meagan Francis, TheHappiestMom.com, Mom 2.0 Summit.
