“We have known Bernice Chao through a major career pathway program we deliver to public high schools throughout Los Angeles. Bernice has been a valuable presenter and mentor, providing underserved students with the insights and motivation they need to envision themselves in future job roles. Most important, the optimism she imparts stirs in them their own confidence, higher expectation and desire to succeed. As an accomplished professional Bernice is invaluable; she brings the ‘real’ to real-world learning experience.”

— Thomas Coston, President of Light Bringer Project

“Bernice has a marvelous presentation style that is polished, and engaging. Whether she is speaking on stage or with you one-one, it’s refreshingly evident that all she wants is be of service and use her knowledge and experience to light the way for others.”

— Pablo Rosario, Fellowship Director of The Society International

“Bernice Chao was a dynamic guest speaker. She explored relevant topics and innovative case studies that engaged our university’s students.”

— Angela M. Hutchinson, Adjunct Professor of Loyola Marymount University

“Bernice was awesome and supportive of the kids and we would love to have her return whenever possible!”

— Karen Anagnost, Teacher at John F. Kennedy

“Bernice Chao is a very warm, engaging and personable speaker who connects well with all audiences - large, or small, young, or old. She captured the minds of the students of Bell High School’s ALPHA Academy - bestowing on them knowledge of her as a person, and of her as a creative professional, as well as of her profession. Bernice left the students and campus aglow, and I highly recommend her as a speaker.”

— Donal Kennedy, Educational Leader of Linked Learning Work-Based Learning Coordinator at LAUSD

“I highly recommend Bernice as a speaking coach. She not only gives great ideas but provides them very efficiently. In our first 45 minute session, she was able to go from never having heard my talk to helping me craft an improved ending and improve the middle structure of the talk.”

— Krister Ungerboeck, Award-Winning CEO and Global Leadership Expert
