“Ellie Nieves facilitated a workshop titled “Marketing Your Personal Brand” at the 2010 National Hispanic Corporate Achievers (NHCA) Empowerment Forum held at Baruch College in New York City. Her sessions were standing room only. The feedback we received from the participants was outstanding. They asked that we include her session again at this year’s 2011 NHCA forum. Many of the participants commented on how her insightful presentation was relevant to today’s career environment and how they learned concrete tips that will help them in their careers. Ellie’s great knowledge of the business world and personal growth lessons on how to position yourself in your career can be applied by both men and women in the public and private sectors. The NHCA is extremely thankful to have had Ellie Nieves as a valued contributor to our program and we are looking forward to continuing this very important partnership. We highly recommend Ellie Nieves as a Leadership Speaker.”
