Dee is the real deal. She has a deep knowledge of sales, branding how-to & lean startup principles. More importantly, she is able to deliver ... what counts - results. I've seen her work 1:1 with entrepreneurs and in 5 minutes help them transform average pitches into authentic, attention commanding pitches. She's a nerd, she's a hustler, and she's a huge asset for any venture.
