Deb recently taught a workshop for us on obtaining NYS and Federal WBE-Women Business Enterprise Certification. Her presentation was awesome and all of the evaluations came back with an excellent rating. She made the very extensive process of certification much more manageable for attendees. They left the workshop understanding how to start the process and the best steps to take to be successful. We look forward to Deb presenting future workshops for us!

Nothing but praise!

I worked diligently to bring Deb Cabral to speak at one of our chapter meetings. I had multiple HR professionals and local officials recommend that we have Deb speak to our chapter. She presented the topic Driving Efficiency and Productivity. The program evaluations for this presentation had nothing but praise! The workshop focused on how to implement effective time management skills, prioritizing work, creating an effective daily schedule and To Do List as well as decluttering, organizing and maintaining an efficient workspace. I recommend Deb Cabral, whom I have had the pleasure of knowing as a true professional. Deb has spoken at other annual state-wide conferences and has won the SBA Excellence in Small Business Award. I have no doubt that Deb Cabral would be an extremely valuable speaker and I give my highest recommendation.

Lights up the room!

Deborah Cabral was a presenter at my annual state-wide conference called “Inspiring Success: The Women TIES Retreat.”. I choose Deb for a special presentation on adding staff to grow a business since she has done a stellar job growing her own company. She presented a similar topic for my organization Women TIES earlier in the year and did such an outstanding job I wanted her to speak again to a larger audience of women entrepreneurs. Deb has a personality and presentation style that lights up the room and captivates the audience. Her energy and enthusiasm for her business is simply inspiring. Her words of business wisdom are always exactly what the audience is looking for. I would highly recommend Deb for any speaking engagement where the organizer is looking for a high spirited, articulate, organized program full of energy and excellent advice.

Tremendous success!

Deb’s positive and delightful demeanor helped to make our declutter day a tremendous success. Everyone was up out of his/her chair ready to chip in and help make our hallway more efficient and professional. With gentle reminders, pointers, and encouragement she was able to get even the culprits of the messiest desks back on track. I wouldn’t be surprised if she could make Oscar the Grouch a little more cheerful in a shiny clean trashcan.

Hit the mark.

Deb Cabral’s presentation Dealing with Difficult Situations hit the mark with our Herkimer College students. Her program, specifically tailored to our student employees and student leaders, provided easy to implement strategies for students to successfully navigate conflicts in the workplace, the classroom or the dorm room. Her energetic style with interactive examples kept the audience of over 60 college students engaged throughout the entire training. While DC Efficiency Consulting may have a foothold in corporate training, their willingness to customize trainings to the audience resulted in a high impact program for our college students transitioning to the professional workplace.

Motivated and inspired!

I am a local teacher and Co-Chairperson for the Regional Educational Conference held annually at the Utica Radisson Hotel. Recently, I had the pleasure of utilizing Deb Cabral’s talents at our conference. Deb was a workshop presenter on “Tips and Ideas to Organize Your Classroom”, and she delivered a short keynote address to all the participants. The feedback we received from attendees was excellent. Her keynote about different personality types was light-hearted, entertaining, and relatable- just what was needed on a Friday night! Her workshop provided many practical ideas that could be implemented immediately. Deb motivated and inspired us all both personally and professionally. From my initial contact with Deb to the event itself, my experience was outstanding!
