    “Stacey recently spoke before a group of owners of PR firms and was excellent — well prepared, engaging, insightful, articulate, and knowledgeable. The audience was rapt. Several attendees thanked her profusely after the event. I highly recommend her as a speaker before any audience. She is certainly invited back to PRSA!”

    It is common knowledge that mothers and daughters often disagree on fashion trends, music and, of course, matters of the heart. However, my daughter, a recent college graduate, and I, a practicing attorney for some thirty years, have no disagreement regarding Stacey Cohen’s qualifications as a branding expert! Her insights on communications, PR and marketing resonate with both of us. We wholeheartedly agree that Stacey’s professional guidance is transformative and transcends generations.

    I have had the pleasure of having Stacey participate in two recent Luxury Marketing Council events and each time she was an insightful and dynamic speaker and panel participant. She has an uncanny ability to draw out key issues and interesting facts and then the best in the audience making for a great conversation.

    Stacey knows her stuff! Presenting to over 30 students, she captivated all with her indispensable, practical advice on how to navigate the maze of personal branding. Students entered the classroom naive about the importance of personal branding but left inspired to go out and position themselves for the future. In dynamic fashion, she made students aware that personal branding is a lifetime process that needs to begin now – in high school. With step-by-step guidance, Stacey showed students how to cultivate their uniqueness, take inventory of their accomplishments, and deliver a clear message online/offline. My students now understand that it is critical to be aware of the message they are putting out and that they need a strategic plan to set themselves apart. Stacey’s eye-opening presentation gave students not only the tools necessary to build their personal brand but also the insight that personal branding is not just for college but for life! High school students NEED Stacey Cohen’s essential advice, and her course should be a requirement for all students. I know her impactful workbook will be front and center in my students’ suitcases as they leave for college.
