WHAT THEY ARE SAYING...
Ms. Tamika Nurse provided an outstanding
workshop to our girls in Ladies of Virtue. She spoke about the importance of dressing for success and gave our girls
tips on how to deliver their elevator pitch and networking successfully. Tamika's workshop was thoughtful, interactive
and fun! I would definitely bring Tamika back to present again to our group.

The Simon MBA and MS class is comprised of nearly 50% of international students from all
over the world. The business communities within these countries have their own cultural norms that do not always align with
the expectations of the business community within the United States. Educating students on soft skills is just as important
as the business curriculum they are currently learning.
Nurse of It Girl Industries was very instrumental in subsidizing this part of their education with a guest lecturer workshop
she conducted on campus this Fall. It was a humorous and interactive presentation that was
as engaging as it was educational. She shared her pearls of wisdom for male and female students in a way
that allowed them to absorb the advice without taking offense to advice that sometimes conflicted with what they had been
accustomed to in their native countries.
Classmates are still
talking about how much they enjoyed the presentation, which is why Simon plans to have Tamika back to educate the next crop
of graduate professionals.

We can’t thank you enough
for your time and dedication to the girls last week. We all enjoyed the presentation and the students gained very
helpful information, I even took a few notes myself.
Tamika provided my students with practical
tools to make the best first impression during interviews – from appearance to demeanor to handshakes. She also highlighted
the importance of tightly controlled social media accounts since recruiters screen the public profiles of their candidates.
Overall, the workshop was very enjoyable, engaging, and chockfull of helpful information to prepare them
for the job market. Several of my students wanted to know when she was coming back.
