“Orit has been a dream collaborator for me on an educational project. She is wonderfully appreciative and encouraging, but at the same time has a sharp eye for weaknesses that need correcting. And she has immediately brought insightful and creative solutions to remedy the weaknesses and make the project stronger and more appealing. Orit has a rare combination of gifts, including a wonderfully positive outlook, insight into what needs strengthening and creative ideas for doing it, and absolutely no phoniness. Whoever works with her will count themselves lucky.”

“Working with Orit gave me an entirely new framework and paradigm for decision-making in my career that is quickly also spilling over into other areas of my life. Her signature “vent and reinvent” methodology enabled me to express myself, take a breath, and then figure out how to move forward in a positive way. She is a skilled and thoughtful coach and listener who is always kind but never scared to address difficult topics. I’m so happy I invested the time and money in her services. Orit truly changed the way I approach my career, and my life.”
