– Peg Calvario, ICF Philadelphia Chapter President

Beth Hand of “Leadership Hand” lived up to her business name when she spoke at 40Plus of Greater Washington. Faced with a smaller audience than expected, she immediately used the opportunity to make her talk and advice more intimate (rather than giving a one-size-fits-all talk). Her presentation on the decision making process and what influence us and how to avoid pitfalls was excellent. She was timely, relevant and in tune with the needs of the crowd. I would highly recommend Beth to help you or your company with leadership and decision making issues. She was very engaging.”

– Giovanni Cappelletti, Director of Speakers Bureau at Forty Plus of Greater Washington

“The members of the Association of Women in International Trade have a common interest that they unite around: Promoting Women and Promoting Trade. The WIIT Professional Development Committee hosted Beth Hand, CEO of Leadership Hand LLC, in December, for an insightful talk on the topic of gender bias in business and trade relationships.

Ms. Hand spoke to her passion on the topic from the research she did for her recent book, Hidden by Gender. Ms. Hand provided guidance on enhancing the careers of professional women involved in international trade and business. She enlightened our members with the tools needed to succeed, including strategies for advancement. As an organization committed to enhancing the careers of professional women involved in international trade and business, Ms. Hand was an excellent resource to our members.”

– Stefanie Holland, President, The Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT)
