Cynthia Adcock

Director of Marketing and Communications, National Council of State Housing Agencies

It is my observation that Dr. Berney is high energy, humorous, and entertaining as well. She has an excellent ability to ‘read’ her audience and engage their interests and enthusiasm and be responsible to their needs. Dr. Berney’s personality is such that people are drawn to her warmth and vivaciousness. I can honestly say that the success of the Mentoring Program at NIST is due in large part to Dr. Berney’s presentation skills.

Rhoda Levin

Former Chair, NIST Mentoring Program National Institute of Standards and Technology

Liz is an engaging and entertaining trainer and speaker, and more importantly, she is extremely knowledgeable in her field. We received positive comments from every staff member about her sessions. I think it is most revealing however, that our staff continues to reference points/comments/suggestions that Liz made during her sessions over a year after her sessions.
