“Vanessa Emerson and Dental Speaker Institute have had a profound impact on my entrepreneurial development. 

From formulating a professional, well-designed speaker packet, to guiding me through the rough terrain of becoming a speaker who gets chosen to speak, Vanessa's programs encompass the umbrella needed to launch a successful speaking career.”

MJ Hanlon, RDH, DMD, MBA

"When I think about the one thing that transformed my speaking career it is without a doubt, Vanessa Emerson!

Under her guidance, I learned how to craft my message and develop my brand. Vanessa developed my website, helped me get sponsors and bookings, and encouraged me to believe in myself and my message! She showed me how to connect with meeting planners, develop rapport with audiences, and even how to write a book! Thank you, Vanessa, for helping me develop a successful speaking career!"

Ronni Brown, DDS, MPH

... I now have consistent virtual speaking opportunities, even in this pandemic, as well as consulting clients. Thank you Vanessa!"

"Just over two years ago, my daughter Hillary Becchetti (a dental employment and transitions attorney) offered me independent position to partner with her firm. My focus would be to educate dentists about conflict resolution. I was 62 years old and questioned my ability to get started in dental speaking.

Fortunately, I found Vanessa! She helped me with my listing on Dental Speakers Bureau, developed a terrific website for me and held my hand (virtually and COVID compliantly) as I negotiated my way through starting up my business. I now have consistent virtual speaking opportunities, even in this pandemic, as well as consulting clients. Thank you Vanessa!"
