Dee Dee Myers
"Everyone loved her, she was fabulous and so inspiring, they were all saying they wish she would have had more time to spend. She truly was amazing."
"You did an outstanding job moderating our panel. I know it is not an easy job- our panelists don't make a career out of public speaking and certainly have varying levels of comfort with being on stage in front of a fair-sized audience, Yet, you did a wonderful job making them feel at ease and drawing them out. You kept the discussion moving at a good pace and made nice connections between what the different women were saying. Our panel was very successful this year, thanks in large part to your skillful handling, and we greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for your hard work and excellent contribution."
-Michelle Pfeifer, Executive Director, Accenture
"Tuesday evening we held our women’s campaign event with Dee Dee Myers as our guest speaker. I want to tell you that she was beyond FANTASTIC and probably the most WELL RECEIVED speaker we have ever had at a women’s event. She was personable, informative, gracious, funny, charming, powerful, engaging and much, much more. Her remarks were also extremely timely. She mingled graciously at the pre-event and was wonderfully engaging with all the donors who approached her before, during and after dinner. Dee Dee is about as down to earth as someone can be and very supportive of the work we do through our federations; the feedback from our guests has been incredible. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
-Jenat Levison Feldman ACSW, Associate Campaign Director, Jewish Federation of Greater Portland
"Congratulations on being one of the most inspiring and enjoyable speakers we have ever had at our Gala Dinner! People have been commenting about how much they enjoyed your remarks, how they particularly appreciated your insight into communications issues, and how impressive it was that you could combine humor with important lessons. Just so you know, we more than exceeded our fundraising goal: we make almost $50,000 on the pitch alone, which is an all-time record for us. We are especially grateful that you were so gracious, both in the VIP reception and following the event. You can rest assured that we will heartily recommend to other non-profits that they retain you to speak at their events."
-Lisa M. Stone, Executive Director, Northwest Women's Law Center

-Associate Alumnae of Douglass College
"I write in praise of Dee Dee Myers, who spoke last week at the Seattle Chapter Hadassah's Gala for Giving: A Salute to Heroes. Ms. Myers entertained our 300 guests with an amusing and informative speech, sprinkled with political jokes and innuendoes. She graciously circulated throughout the crowd during the reception before dinner, and was kind enough to pose for photographs with our honoree and committee. I heartily recommend Ms. Myers for any organization seeking a top-notch speaker."
-Jill Cohen, Executive Director, Hadassah
"I personally want to thank you for taking the time to speak at our fundraising event for Summit Business Professional Women's Organization.

-Carolyn Burridge, Network 2000
"She charmed the audience with her wit and humor. She held everyone's attention and the time flew.... not an easy task in this day of sound bite attention spans. The surprise, though, was the enthusiasm and excitement she triggered in the students. Before and after the public presentation she graciously talked with small groups of students. You could almost see neurons firing as students clamored to have Ms. Myers address their questions and comments. There is no greater praise that I can express - she inspired and she made us smile."

"Thank you for speaking on our campus this week during our Arnold Symposium on Integrity and the Media. You entertained us with you quick wit and funny stories, but, more importantly, you gave us practical wisdom from your years living through those challenges at a personal level. Your carefully composed 'Seven Obstacles to an Ethical Media Environment,' clarified some of the challenges journalists face and helped us understand ways we need to be more discerning as we interpret and process the news. We especially appreciated that you tailored your talk to our theme so beautifully."
-Suzanne J. Smith, Professor of Business Administration, Presbyterian College
"The words of wisdom you gave in relation to working with the press and the path you took to the White House were priceless.
