“Sandra Abdalian’s presentation on Assertive Communication for Women was awesome! She used energy, information, and great stories to drive home all of her points as she walked us through the 4 Pillars of Assertive Communication. We took away specific strategies to use to improve our assertive communication immediately. I love that she challenged us to take ONE THING from the presentation to focus on and work toward improving. This was a really powerful presentation that all women should hear.”
– Carolyn Bonaventura, Central Florida SWE Chapter President
“Sandra was an awesome addition to the University of Florida SWE professional speaker series. Her workshop, “How to Engineer a Career and Life You Love”, presented our members with the framework to build their life through balance, vision, and goal setting. Sandra is an excellent presenter and illustrated her points with relatable stories. We are looking forward to having her back for another presentation in the spring semester.”
