“Marcia Yerman served as the moderator for a Pages & Places Book Festival panel discussion in the fall of 2010. The panel topic addressed the ways societies rebuild themselves after catastrophic events and included experts from a variety of fields (law, photojournalism, politics). Marcia deftly navigated the complex issues raised in the discussion and posed questions that were both incisive and accessible to the audience.

Equally important was the exceptionally professional way she handled herself as a “client” of the festival. She responded promptly to all correspondence, followed up on all queries and contractual questions, and initiated contact with festival organizers and panelists to discuss the format and content of the presentation well in advance of the event. Also of note was her generous co-promotion of our event, ensuring that the festival details reached her contacts through her varied media platforms both before and after the event.

She is an exceptional person to work with, detail-oriented and thorough while also creative and expansive in her ability to bring her vast knowledge and experience to bear on the issue at hand.  -Elizabeth Randol, Ph.D., Co-Director, Pages & Places Book Festival” 2010

“Marcia spoke at the Zonta Club of New York about the use of social networking. She was dynamic and interesting. I was most impressed with the way she answered questions in a succinct, yet instructive manner. I would highly recommend her for a program speaker, and as a consultant in social networking for any company or organization as her knowledge base is extensive and her manner is both professional and engaging,” July 9, 2009 – Leslie Wright, Zonta Club of New York
