As a speaker, Daphne engages the crowd in a way that leaves the audience hanging on to every word. Daphne's spirit and energy are unparalleled.
 
I will follow her to the end of the earth because I know that anything that she is a part of - it will be phenomenal.
 
When she puts her mind to something, consider it done.

Daphne is fantastic at working within a group setting - somehow, she made it feel like she was speaking one-on-one with you instead of to 20 people!
 

One of the things I also appreciated was that Daphne has the ability to break down complex subject matter and explain it in simple terms. I never felt lost and certainly felt comfortable asking questions! Plus she's got a very joyful, upbeat personality, so, the training was a lot of fun. I plan on attending other training events she hosts in the future and I highly recommend her services.

Daphne's approach to coaching is personal and engaged. Not only is she knowledgeable and polished, she is pleasantly positive, energetic, and friendly. I think this is what allows her to be so effective and successful.

 

Her ability to connect with you on an individual level (even while being a part of a training class) speaks to her high level of training skills. Not to mention, I'll be able to apply what I learned from her coaching in other aspects of my life. Invaluable is the only way I can express my coaching experience with Daphne.

Daphne is an impactful speaker and career coach with a rare gift for creating experiences that lend themselves to practical application. I attended her LinkedIn training and am currently a career coaching client, so I had the great fortune of seeing her in action in both group and one-on-one settings. Her content is engaging and she encourages a bias for action that is often absent in facilitated sessions or educational/motivational content.

I felt compelled to put into practice her tried and true techniques for self-discovery, focus and follow-through. In just a few short weeks I have refined my professional brand and elicited immediate feedback from the community I'd like to engage as I grow my reach in tech. Daphne would be an invaluable asset to any organization or individual looking to level up.

As a result of my work with Daphne, I have been able to progress further in my career, move up to a much higher role within another Fortune 500 company, and have multiple pay increases, with the highest pay increase being a 40% increase in pay.
 
When I first started working with Daphne, I felt like I had no structure and didn’t have direction. My work with her has also resulted in a much clearer career path, an increase in confidence, business acumen improvement, increased organization skills, and improved time management.
 
Daphne took me from a small fish in the water on the food chain at a Fortune 500 company to a senior position. She has helped me develop my resume, my interview skills, my sight on my path of where I want to be, and how I want to grow professionally.

A galvanizing, fun leadership style allows Daphne to coach and develop teams to maximize output. I experienced this firsthand when she worked as my manager and as I continue to work with her as a recipient of her training and coaching.

Daphne is truly a gem in any business environment. She exhibits authentic, value-oriented leadership and I would recommend her for any individual or organization seeking proven growth strategies.

Daphne was such a pleasure to work with. She is an awesome leadership coach, especially to first time executive leaders. She helped me navigate the complex relationship between executive leaders and board of directors. She shared her vast network and put me in touch with high-level executive leaders to get a more personal knowledge of being an executive leader.

I would highly recommend Daphne's services.

I tripled my client base while working with Daphne Valcin Coaching, and even after working with her, obtained a number of corporate and nonprofit speaking, facilitation, and leadership development clients as a result of the work we did together. Coaching with Daphne was an amazing experience.  She was thorough and patient and supported me in developing a clearer vision for my business along with other critical components of my overall business strategy, working with me to communicate my value-add in a powerful way to prospects--a skillset I continue to use in my business.

Within less than a year of working with Daphne, I was able to go from indecision to having a framework and transition plan in place to allow me to go from being a successful full-time consultant to working in my business full-time. Coaching with her regularly, from the time I launched my business to now, allowed me to go from having no clients to having 75 clients with my client conversion rates increasing from 20 percent to 50 percent.

 

Her style of coaching has enhanced my own motivation, consistency, and ability to prioritize as a business leader. I appreciate Daphne’s ability to help me focus on the big picture of my long-term business vision while also supporting me in executing the daily tasks it takes to ensure my business and my staff are thriving. Her coaching has contributed to my hiring strategy, marketing plan, business plan, customer retention strategy, and development as a leader and business owner. If you’re looking for accountability and strategic support for your business, I highly recommend that you consider working with Daphne!

Deanna J. Speaks

I am honored to be able to recommend Daphne Valcin as an individual and group business coach. I came to Daphne knowing that I needed assistance in polishing my presentation and business practices as a speaker and a coach but I received so much more. Daphne elevated my skills on multiple levels through her coaching and expertise.

 

The process was amazing in that she used pointed and specific instruction via both group and individual coaching sessions. In group sessions, we received guided instruction and coaching to build upon and then put the principles we learned into practice before that call ended. In our individual sessions, we really honed in on what we learned in the group and honed in on our individual goals. Daphne consistently provided tangible, real-world examples to further drive home her points.

 

Daphne over-provided value and would even send me articles and other resources that were aligned with my goals. She challenged me to continue to polish all aspects of business, from my LinkedIn page to tools used within my businesses as a coach, speaker and trainer. I have now completed my coaching experience with Daphne with every foundational aspect of my speaking and training business created and enhanced. I feel prepared and ready to execute, and I am so grateful for that. I highly recommend Daphne. She is honest and direct. She is supportive and encouraging. She is well-rounded as a coach and you will be an even more well-rounded professional after working with her.

D&L Miracle Cleaning

When I came to Daphne for business coaching, I was unsure of how to connect with clients, how to make progress with my business, how to attract and speak with prospective clients and how to maintain a long-term relationship with current clients. While working with Daphne Valcin Coaching, I went from having 2 - 3 residential cleaning clients to having about 15-17 residential clients and 3 commercial business contracts. My revenue increased profusely as a result of the tools, strategies, and accountability that I obtained from Daphne. We were able to create a results-driven action plan that ultimately led to my success in my business. Daphne has a wealth of information and knowledge on how to start and operate a successful business. She provided me with countless resources that really could have taken me years to research on my own. Her working with me led to my having an epiphany of what it could take for me to be successful in business and by working with her, I gained the confidence that I needed to successfully understand my clients’ needs and tools to establish meaningful relationships with them. Not only do I now have an increase in revenues and clientele, but I also have the strategies and tactics to attract and retain new customers. For anyone looking to grow their business consistently or wanting to start a successful business, I highly recommend hiring Daphne as your own transformative business coach.

The Expectancy Institute

I came to Daphne with a desire to empower others through coaching and an initial business vision, but without the real basic business principles to ensure that I started on the right foot. Working with Daphne has helped me to discover some of my most powerful and beneficial traits and characteristics that I had not known existed, and also helped me to discover some of my traits that I could tremendously improve upon for the benefit of my business. 

 

As a result of my work with Daphne, I also have a more thorough understanding of the foundational framework my business should be built on to ensure long-term success.Daphne provided me with countless amounts of resources and connections to get me moving towards my desired direction. In addition, she checked on me in between our sessions and held me accountable for doing my part, which was awesome. Daphne was also able to support me in exuding a confidence in my business that only real great coaches can pull out of a person. I believe individuals who are at different phases of personal goals and business endeavors could definitely benefit from the level of knowledge, energy, and commitment that Daphne brings to the table. She really wants to see her clients successful at meeting their goals.

 

For anyone considering working with Daphne Valcin Coaching, the investment and time you sacrifice to work with Daphne yields a benefit far greater than the sum of the financial cost of coaching. When something has got to change in your life or business, and you are ready for something new, Daphne will jump in with you and then push you into becoming your greater self. I highly recommend her services!
