Don’t take our word for it. Read what others are saying about Twomentor…

Thank you for joining Anthem’s Government Business Divisions executive leadership summit. I have received feedback from many of the leaders in attendance who have described the session as impactful.  They described you as enthusiastic, contagious, brave, and bold. The time spent making the business case for mentorship and sponsorship was the perfect set up for the time spent on flash mentoring. Several leaders have shared with me individually that they were inspired to both be a better mentor and to find mentors who can challenge them to grow. We look forward to working with you again soon.

We were very fortunate to have learned from all of her experience and lessons from the workplace.”

“I don’t often meet dynamic women who are more passionate about entrepreneurship than I am, Julie Kantor just may have me beat. Almost every conversation Julie and I have somehow come back to empowerment and individual responsibility – two of the values we both hold dear in our lives. It is so hard for me to believe that I have only known Julie for just over one year; we met at a NFTE fundraising event here in the DC area. At the time I was serving on the board of advisors of NFTE South Florida, everyone with the South Florida office LOVES Julie Kantor and raved about her success here in DC. I was so nervous to meet her; she seemed bigger than life in their descriptions of her – a real DC power broker. I was so delighted to learn why she is so respected by everyone – she is GENUINE and has the gift of making you feel like you are the center of her universe when she is speaking to you. I gained a lifelong friend in an instant. Julie and I have had the pleasure of working together at the parent company of Barrel of Jobs, New Signature. During our time working together, I learned more about what has led to Julie’s success. She works hard! She sets a goal, she clears the roadblocks and she makes things happen. Julie listens to the experts around her; no matter their age or years of experience. I can tell you that Julie S. Kantor will be an asset to any organization! I will look for opportunities to work with her again in commerce or in the community. Julie is a true powerhouse, an inspiration. If you don’t know her yet do yourself a favor and find a reason to get to know her – you won’t be sorry!”

“There are people that stand out as leaders by just walking into a room and there are people who know how to get things done…then there’s Julie who is the complete package. She is a magnetic and effective leader and operator and I’d jump at the chance to collaborate with her.”

“It was a pleasure to work with Julie. She is smart, hard-working, well organized and thoughtful. She cares about STEM and can make an important impact on whatever issue she is working on. It is a pleasure to recommend her.”
Steven M. Rothstein CEO, Citizen Schools


“I had been following Julie on LinkedIn for a while and loved her advice and admired her balanced approach to women mentoring women of all generations in the workplace. We were so blessed to have Julie Kantor work with Women in Technology’s Executive SIG and Women of ATT to bring together a powerful evening of insight and engagement that would normally take a weekend to fulfill, in just a few hours. Her passion, insight, and ability to provide a true working session among women of all career tracks and various experiences along a journey of sharing and consultation were powerful. I highly recommend Julie for any organization who is concerned about retention and empowering women in their organizations. As the market for talent is getting hotter, retaining and empowering will become critical to success for organizations ability to hold onto their best performers many of whom are women.”

“I have known Julie for over 11 years. She was the first chief trainer for our India project, I Create Inc and trained 30 master trainers at our first center in India. She did a fabulous job, in providing both the content and the methodology, organizing the training event and motivating the trainees. With that start, I Create has now 15 centers in India and has trained over 40,000. She is extremely pleasant to work with and yet works with great discipline, plans and prepares well and follows through to ensure implementation. She is an exceptionally talented professional and will be a great asset to any organization she works with.”

“Julie was the program chairperson and one of the featured speakers at the 2015 IIR Women in STEM Idea Exchange Summit (Bentley University). Working with Julie on-site was an energizing experience with great results. Julie gave a very engaging and practical presentation about mentoring and really enhanced the value of the program for attendees as the Summit Chairperson. She was able to make impactful contributions to the content throughout the day but also was one of the best people I have seen engage an audience in discussion and collaboration while making everyone in the room feel at ease.”
Elizabeth Cutler Event Strategy & Management Executive, IIRUSA


“I was recently at an event where Julie provided the keynote address. The audience was filled with women entrepreneurs who are just embarking on their business ownership experiences. Julie’s comments were down to earth and poignant. All of us were inspired by her (and her family’s) story and ready to take on the challenges that will certainly present themselves in our path. I would highly recommend Julie as a speaker and mentor. She is dynamic and can hold a group’s attention. She understands the ins and outs of small business development and has just the right personality to be firm, while upbeat and extremely motivating as a mentor and/or sponsor. I look forward to finding ways to work with Julie in the future!”
