"You must attend this exciting and informative conference. The information that I gained was helpful at home, work and church. It was well worth the drive from Richmond and I look forward to the next conference."

Rhonda Stanford - Richmond, Virginia


"I truly enjoyed the Wisdom, Wealth and Wellness seminar. It was a great way to spend my day Giving me time to reflect on the past and teaching me ways to move forward in my present and future. The speakers were awesome and brought with them a wealth of knowledge to help make all of us wiser. Each speaker touched me in a way that I can say, I have learned, I have laughed and I have cried. It doesn't get any better than that!"

Jan Ebron - Bowie, Maryland


"Ms. Slade Martin conducted a team building workshop for our law firm practice group. We had just merged with another law firm. She was wonderful! The exercises she had us doing really broke the ice, loosened folks up, and helped us all get to know one another better. Phyllis is very talented and perceptive at what she does - an effortless leader - and so easy to get along with in the planning stage. Everyone agreed that it was a great experience."

Henry Wixon, Partner - Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, LLP


"Slade and Associates assisted CYEP in a great capacity to prepare for our Stakeholders meeting. We needed a fast turn around and a top quality, professional handout. Ms. Slade Martin worked hand and hand with our organization to perfectly articulate the mission, goals, and action plan. Slade and Associates eased our anxiety by bringing poise and experience during a pressure situation. CYEP will look forward to working with Slade and Associates in the future for our consulting needs."

Erick T. King, President & CEO - Capitol Youth Empowerment Program, Inc.


"Wisdom, Wealth and Wellness provided an opportunity for rejuvenation, rejoicing and reinforcement. From the seminar's introductory activities by Phyllis Slade Martin I knew I was in for an unforgettable treat. I loved the casualness of the flow of events and speakers, and I loved the elegance of the ambience and efforts shown in the event preparation. I laughed, cried, listened and learned. On my three-hour trip home I was on a natural high and could not wait to tell friends about my experience."

Mary Lassiter, Conference Participant - Williamsburg, Virginia
