  • “I cannot thank you enough for such an inspiring presentation at our 15th Annual Leadership Colloquium here at UMW. I continue to hear from women who attended and were “wowed” by your thoughts, stories, C’s, guidance, and overall leadership concepts. It was quite impressive. I have personally been struck by comments you made that come back to me each day… and that I share with others. We learned much from your presentation, and are grateful to you for sharing your expertise with us. I hope our paths will cross again.”

    Jeanine Kline, Ed.D., Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Administrative Services, Mary Washington College

  • Speaker for 1200 Partners & Sr. Managers at Annual Meeting, Chairman’s testimonial:

Her infectious energy and sharp, real life insights provided each partner and manager an arsenal of valuable nuggets to use in business development and in maintaining outstanding relationships with clients.”

  • “I engaged Hilary Fordwich to moderate the National Defense Industrial Association’s 2nd Annual Cyber Security Month Conference this past October. As the lead for the project, I couldn’t be happier with Hilary’s professional preparation, engaging dialogue with the panelists, and her supreme confidence and presence before an audience of industry leaders as well as the press. From Congressmen, Cyber Security CEOs, to the Defense press, Hilary is an outstanding ‘Ringmaster’ managing our conference with ease and grace. I only hope I can enlist her fabulous skills in the future.”

  • Unisys

    “Strelmark is assisting us to increase our win rate in terms of new business. Hilary has a certain charm about her as well as a disciplined, systematic approach that we really needed. She was effective in a very brief period of time working with our team as we prepared in both responding to our client needs as well as presenting orals which is a key part of the procurement process. She yields results and we plan on expanding her role at Unisys.”

    Greg Baroni, President, Global Public Sector, Unisys

  • ManTech

    “Hilary is one of the best in the industry when it comes to providing team training that is focused on building and leveraging customer relationships. Her session with us was not only insightful and practical, but motivating. She provided us strategies and tools we can use to further leverage our incumbent advantage and apply a laser-like focus on our customers. My management team is now ready to take our customer relationships to new levels! Everything she said was on the mark… her presentation was not the typical “canned pitch”, but a specially developed interactive session tailored for our management team and our customers. Hilary comes with my highest recommendation.”

    Tom Mitchell, President and COO, ManTech Security & Mission Assurance Corporation, ManTech

  • “Hilary was so impressive in the session for our Tysons office that we invited her to keynote our Annual Partners meeting, her content was so strong and her practical advice based on her direct accounting firm knowledge, that we retained her to deliver sessions for each of our 22 offices in smaller hands-on partner sessions. From those we also had her work one-on-one with some selected partners. Because Hilary understood our industry, but also studied the nuances or our practice areas she was able to give great help to our growth strategies.”

    Susan Moser, Managing Partner, Industries & Specialization and Washington, D.C. Practice, Cherry Bekaert

  • “Hilary’s presentation at our Holland & Knight annual retreat on ‘How to Gain and Retain Clients’ was by far the best program on the subject I have experienced in 38 years of practicing law. I hope we will have you back for our partners next year.”

    William B.”Bill” Wilson, Partner, Holland & Knight

    “Your content for our female attorneys in our Rising Stars program was well received and really had such a positive impact. We would like for you to work with the next group next year.”

    Janis Schiff, National Partner Real Estate Practice and Lead Partners Rising Stars, Holland & Knight

    “After all these years of seeing your presentation I want you to know that I still have your ‘5C’s on the back of my door so that I remember them when I go to any meeting and when I’m on the phone with our clients and others. Your content was impactful, really grateful for your content.”

    Paul J. Kiernan, Executive Partner, Washington, D.C., Holland & Knight
