Wisdom In Minutes seminars and workshops are engaging, practical, and memorable! Here’s what parents, students, and youth development organizations have to say.



What struck me the most is that your presentation gave the students a strong “nuts and bolts” approach to college essays.  I sense that the kids too often only hear generalities about the college application process, especially the essay portion. They frequently hear “write about something personal” but do not really understand what that means. I found your writing exercises to be a wonderful tool to help them understand what they should be writing.

I really appreciated our talk…You have a lot of wisdom about parenting and a parent’s role in their child’s education.

Your session today was a phenomenal success. You were engaging and the information was delivered in a fun and very effective way.  We certainly enjoyed it and clearly the girls did too!

Tonda has facilitated multiple Youth Development workshops within our Youth Development Community of Practice at the Montgomery County Collaboration Council. In my experience with her, I can affirm that Tonda is highly organized, strategic, and extremely diligent in creating outcomes for the work she produces for her workshop participants. Her facilitation style is very enthusiastic and high energy with several intentional engagement opportunities for workshop attendees. I would highly recommend Tonda as a skilled Youth Development facilitator.

Tonda came to speak at the Girl Powered summer camp. She was on time, prepared, and engaging. Her talk to my campers was very informative, helpful, and clear. She left them with lots to think about for their upcoming school year. It is always a pleasure to speak and work with Tonda. She is a captivating public speaker and will be able to provide insight to any group!
