Rolande is a terrific speaker.  Her keynote presentation for one of our signature BRG events was highly informative and full of lots of useful information, strategies, tips and tools for increasing our recruitment and retention of women from the military. She clearly drew on her years of experience in the military and as a veteran, and her sage advice enabled us to target several areas where we could better leverage our time and resources.

Amanda Beauchamp

“Before working with Rolande, I was frustrated with no one to really listen and provide objective feedback. After my first few sessions, I learned how to think through the noise in my mind; that I truly knew what I wanted to do. She helped me modify my thinking so I would doubt myself less and instead take action. I learned it was okay to make shifts in the plan and not to feel insecure about it. My time with Rolande resulted in a laid-out plan, peace of mind in the process (journey) and confidence in my decision making.”

Maria Amore

“I’ve known Rolande for the past few years; she is a caring, well-organized, and creative person. A few months back, I co-organized a dinner for International Women’s Day. Rolande was on the panel along with 3 other women to discuss the struggles and achievements of being a woman in business. She talked about her experiences and gave great advice to the attendees. Rolande is very knowledgeable and inspirational.”

Never had issues with payroll, and kept the company informed of any unforeseen issues. We were never left in the dark about anything. If an issue aroused, it was handled quickly. She did more than what was needed to get the job done. A constant mentor, even when you least expected it. Need ten thousand more of her. “
