“A treasure house of fabulous practical ideas for anyone who is building credibility.”
~ Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

“Susan Harrow is a dynamic, multi-dimensional, and talented powerhouse. She has a huge heart when it comes to helping others who want to shift something of importance in the world. She is knowledgeable and inspiring when distinguishing the mindset of the media in order to reach the audiences that the client desires with integrity. It was a pleasure to delve into what energizes and inspires Susan to make the impact that she does with her work.”
~ Gabe Nelson, CFP, Author, and Host of the Solopreneur Money Podcast

“On behalf of the National Speakers Association of Northern California, I would like to thank you for presenting such a wonderful program at our general membership meeting. As a professional association for speakers and trainers, NSA/NC is a pretty tough audience yet, they loved your presentation. As one of our members wrote in his evaluation, “The real-life information was invaluable!” All of the feedback that I received proved the incredible value of your information-packed program. Thanks again for sharing your time and talents with NSA/NC.”
~ Roseann Sullivan, Speaking for Your Success President NSA/NC (National Speakers Association)

“You & your presentation were a delight — and your audience (judging from your NSA evaluations) thought so, too. Everyone was very impressed with the generosity/depth/breadth of info — as well as your charming manner. Thank you so much for a Super Session that was Truly Super!”
~ Susan Schwartz, Speaker, NSA Program Coordinator

“I enjoyed your presentation at the Clarion on Saturday — engaging, informative, and fun. And I want to compliment the manner in which you handled all of the logistical setbacks — microphone, handouts, room size, etc. Thanks.”
~ Patricia Marshall

“I’m a member of the Women’s Business Alliance and was in attendance for your presentation last Wed. Without a doubt, you were, the best speaker we’ve had in the 2 years I’ve been involved. For someone who began their career as a shy, hesitant public speaker, you’ve honed your talent well. I felt you were charismatic, humorous, and extremely informative.”
~ Susan A. Donegan, The Travel Coach

“I can certainly see why you have such a sterling reputation as a publicist. Even months later, the ASJA (American Society of Journalists and Authors) audience remembers you well…If our books made the sort of impact with readers that you did with ASJA, we’d all be receiving bigger royalty checks I’m sure.”
~ Sara Godwin, Author and past Program Chair and President, ASJA
