Bridging the Political Divide
"Donna was sharp, sophisticated, and the audience applauded with enthusiasm her witty saying about our political and social status quo. She seemed strong, influential, approachable, flexible, and professional. She is a good presenter and able to excite the audience with her speaking style. I receive numerous positive comments. Her presence here was covered widely by local media. I am very happy with the turnout and her performance."
"Our event last Thursday was a rousing success and Donna was just great. The audience was extremely responsive to her presentation and she was just a real pleasure to work with. Donna has a unique way of making a point so that one has to stop and think about what she just said. It was very enjoyable and informative. Thank you for your help in making this possible. I have worked with a number of speakers famous and not so famous and I just appreciate the down to earth approach Donna takes in working with us."
"Donna Brazile was one of the most dynamic speakers that we've sponsored at Cal! Not only did she speak beyond the time promised, but her enthusiasm and motivation at the Q&A and during the reception was beyond anything we've experienced. Our students were most fortunate to share this time with her, and we would recommend her highly—at any cost!"
"Donna undoubtedly mesmerized the audience with her real life situational experiences, and her annotated delivery and dry humor. She can bring a tear to one’s eye, or a hearty laugh to one’s heart. She is a bright, captivating no nonsense speaker who has real life experience that she is willing to share with her audience."
"Everything went smoothly—on a scale of 1 to 10, it was a perfect 20. Donna spoke eloquently, she was absolutely awesome. All I could say is that Montclair State University was smitten with Donna Brazil. It was excellent! Her message was right on target—it was politics of Affirmative Action. We are looking forward to working with American Program Bureau again. "
"Her speech was well received by all and has been a topic of discussion throughout the campus ever since. I truly believe in the democratic process and if the impact she had on the students in my office is any example, California University students will be at the polls on November 2nd!"
"Donna Brazile was probably the best speaker we have had in the 25 years I have been here. I was ready to vote for HER for president by the time she was done—and I’m a conservative! "
