TESTIMONIALS

"I have personally worked with Dottie for more than 20 years in the prevention of domestic violence, school violence and workplace violence.  As the entire world moves toward hardening schools and reacting to violence, Dottie stands out in the crowd as an expert on preventing violence.  She is a dynamic and  energetic presenter who works closely with our team as a consultant and advisor to our more than 7,000 clients.  The feedback from our clients and seminar participants is always 5 star."

“Dottie has provided outstanding presentations for us on Workplace Violence, addressing the Human Resource and Safety Management teams from many Fort Wayne and surrounding area companies. She has a very canny way of connecting with each person in the room and giving a very clear perspective of this reality that no one ever wants to encounter. Evaluations following her sessions are always “exceptional” with several companies always contracting with her for training afterwards. We at RediMed Business Health would unanimously and highly recommend Dottie for any of her services.”

“Ms. Dottie Davis has been an inspiration since the first time I heard her speak. She is a survivor with a very unique story; a face we would not readily identify with domestic violence, which makes her story that much more compelling. She is a voice for many like her who suffer in silence daily from the fear that immobilizes them. Her passion, intelligence, strength and sincerity are just a few of the hallmarks of what make her one of the most innovative and inspirational speakers I have had the pleasure of working with.”


Candace M. Mosley, Director of Programs
National District Attorneys Association
Columbia, SC


 

“Dottie Davis is a wonderful speaker. She is very professional, knows her stuff and can communicate with her audience. Dottie is a good listener and can understand the trauma that people have been through. I can whole heartedly recommend Dottie Davis as a speaker, trainer, and consultant.”


Pam McConey, Executive Director

"Dottie Davis is an exceptional choice for the training, speaking, expert witness and consulting needs of a broad range of organizations. Her remarkable resume speaks for itself, including numerous awards for her community and professional work, more than three decades as a woman law enforcement trailblazer, her work as deputy chief of a large police department, expert witness testimony in many civil and criminal trials and testimony to lawmakers on domestic violence.

 

As a domestic violence survivor herself, Dottie brings extraordinary authority, passion and knowledge to her work on criminal justice, domestic violence and security issues, including unique insight and expertise ranging from personal impacts to problems in existing systems and solutions."

"I have had the opportunity--and the pleasure-- to present with Ms. Davis in a variety of settings over the last 20 years, and to observe her present on many others.  The audiences ranged from law enforcement, to prosecuting attorneys, to judicial officers, to victim advocates, to criminal defense attorneys, to multidisciplinary trainings where she addressed combinations of all of the above. Each time, I marvelled at her preparedness, her mastery of the subject matter at hand and the engaging people-skills she brought to the delivery of her message. She employs the right mix of intellectual incision, empathetic identification with the urgency needed to confront the the problems presented by abusive relationships and the humor required to prevent the seriousness and weight of her presentation from becoming unbearable. Because of her focus on the pragmatic and the "nuts-and-bolts" of the suggested interventions contained in her topics, her presentations always allow even the most uninitiated to come away with a clear-eyed understanding of how to apply what they've learned once they return to their own environments."
