  • “Stephanie and Deena’s creativity is boundless and their energy is contagious. Nearly 100 young lawyers and law students marveled at their interactive presentation on the “do’s and don’ts of networking”, and came away with a firm understanding on how to work a room. I wholeheartedly recommend Fireball Network. They are the deans of networking!”
