"To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to introduce Dr. Lawana Gladney. I highly endorse her company and services as an emotional health and wellness expert. In my role as President, of Pitney Bowes Management Services, U.S. Operations, I had the privilege to employ her company to provide training for a recently initiated program. She presented a training session entitled “Emotionally Healthy Leaders” that was so well received Pitney Bowes will be including her program in our company-wide training.
After the success of her initial program with PBMS, I hired her to speak to my executive team to ensure their emotional health and wellness. Also, I asked her to contribute her expertise to my book which is entitled, “Good Is Not Enough and Other Unwritten Rules for Minorities in Corporate America.”
As a leader in a Fortune 500 company, I recognize the value of having healthy employees, both physically and emotionally, to drive productivity. I am pleased to recommend Dr. Gladney for your company/organization to help you reach your goals.

"DFW Airport recently had the pleasure of working with Dr. Lawana Gladney at the DFW Conference for Women.
Dr. Gladney served as the mistress of ceremonies for the conference, which drew more than 400 women across the Airport. The conference was a huge success due in large part to Dr. Gladney’s performance and her ability to connect with the audience.
Dr. Gladney was humorous, warm and engaging, kept the program running smoothly, and was able to weave her experience as an author, consultant and mother of four children into her presentation. She was professional, yet approachable.
Many women expressed deep appreciation for the Women’s Conference geared entirely toward them. Dr. Gladney created an environment that allowed the women of DFW Airport to feel special, important and appreciated.
