SAMPLE SPEAKING TESTIMONIALS

“Thank you for a very memorable talk — our Fashion Law Bootcampers loved you and were very inspired. ~Susan Scafidi, Founder, Fordham Fashion Law Institute

“Uduak –  Your Business Law for Entrepreneurs training was a huge success, and the response from the attendees was amazingly positive.  You were a huge hit…” ~Deborah Lowe Muramoto,  Director of Women’s Business Center, California Capital Financial Development Corporation 

Thank you for [y]our time to conduct the workshop, Fashion Law 101: Legal Issues in the Fashion Industry, in our San Francisco Office. [W]e reviewed the evaluations, and all the participants found the workshop to be very helpful and informative. We also received many comments rating the workshop and your presentation as “excellent.” We thought your presentation was outstanding as well, and hope to have you back for another event in the near future!” – Lisa Camhi, Program Director, California Lawyers for the Arts

“When putting together a panel of distinguished fashion professionals, I immediately reached out to Uduak to be a part of a unique event to showcase the fashion industry. She responded instantly and her presence on the panel was a perfect fit to round out the group. She offered to our students a keen perspective of the industry that the other members could not. Because, as a model, she had been an insider, and, as an attorney, she sees the business and legal side, her perspectives were practical and insightful, and her presence commanded the audience, which was made up of fashion students and area professionals.

Uduak is a rare gem in this business. While most are jaded after years of experience in the business, she is more passionate than ever and driven to use that experience in new and innovative capacities. She is a mentor, an example, an idol, and an expert in so many ways.” ~Leslie Asfour, Fashion Director for Delta College.
