"Toni was a dynamic breath of fresh air at our annual conference! Her inviting personality created a welcoming environment where people felt comfortable participating and sharing their thoughts and experiences. I was very impressed by how she engaged the entire room. The feedback from the session was excellent, and it was easy to see that everyone walked away having learned something that they could apply to their own relationships--work or otherwise. I would highly recommend Paradigm One and sincerely hope we will find additional ways to work with each other in the future."

"Working with Paradigm One, LLC was a very pleasant and rewarding experience. Ms. Purvis did an event for my organization that focused on properly developing relationships virtually. With the changing world due to Covid, this presentation was aligned with real life issues that need to be addressed for those working today. Ms. Purvis was early to the event, well prepared, and our participants were extremely pleased and were able to take something away to better them. We are looking forward to working with Paradigm One, LLC again in the future."

- Assistant Director
Harlem Children’s Zone


"Toni is the full package - her passion, content knowledge, professionalism and connection with youth is unmatched. I really appreciated the attention to detail that she provided to ensure that our youth were well prepared for their summer jobs and internships by understanding the importance of communication and business etiquette. Such topics can be tricky to teach to students if the delivery is not wrapped with care. Toni treated our students with dignity and respect, thus they left her session walking an inch taller than they had before. She helped instill confidence in them and we were able to see some of the benefits of what they learned during that summer. I would highly recommend Toni for consulting and facilitation."

- Chapter President and Founder
Wellesley for Asset Management and Finance (WAMF) Wellesley University


"I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop that Paradigm One put together for Wellesley for Asset Management and Finance. One of my goals as Founder and President of the organization is that every WAMF member starts to develop confidence in their abilities and in themselves as they start finance recruitment. Paradigm One's workshop on Personal Branding and Networking helped so many members think about how they want to represent themselves professionally and personally. A lot of members wrote back to me after the workshop asking to have Toni Purvis back next year."

- Senior Manager, Alumni Impact
KIPP Foundation

"Working with Paradigm One was lovely. We decided our scholarship students needed a bit of guidance in structuring their resumes and Paradigm One was recommended to us. Toni was responsive, thorough in her preparation of her content to ensure it met our students' needs, and "arrived" early to the virtual workshop. She is professional, but warm in her presentation style and I think this aided in her content being well-received by our students. We intend to work with Paradigm One again for a longer, more in-depth session regarding professionalism."

- Strategic Initiatives Advisor
Sheryl Sandberg Dave Goldberg Family Foundation


"Working with our partners at KIPP Schools, Paradigm One provided a terrific resume workshop for our Goldberg Scholars. I appreciated her attention to detail, ability to engage and excite our students with her dynamic content, and ability to tailor the session to their baseline knowledge."

- Professor and Program Chair
Glen M. Broom Center for Professional Development in Public Relations
San Diego State University

"Toni Purvis is a class act who can make any professional shine. She uses her experience in some of the most stressful and network-rich environments to help polish professionals at every level. She can scale her sessions to brand new professionals all the way up to senior executives. I appreciated how Toni really leads by example. In preparing for our sessions she put the time & work in to make it so personable -- which is practicing what she preaches! I am so grateful there are savvy pros out there who are willing to help shine up the rest of us, and Toni is no doubt the savviest of them all."

- Program Manager, TRIO Upward Bound
TEMPLE UNIVERSITY



"Toni is our preferred speaker for many of my program's professional development and etiquette series. We have had her speak on multiple occasions and each time she delivers! Our high school scholars are entertained and engaged by her presentations. Our staff has confidence in her delivery of material and execution. Most important, our scholars leave her workshops with actionable skills and knowledge of decorum expectations for their next steps, be it towards internships, college interviews, and/or professional networking. Paradigm One, LLC helped us set a standard for our scholars which has enhanced their confidence and soft skills, all while easing their transition into professional spaces."

- PROGRAM DIRECTOR, LAW FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO)

"We engaged Paradigm One to conduct a series of professional etiquette workshops for our law fellows prior to their internships at corporate law firms. . .Very thoughtful, flexible and easy to work with, and a true partner in creating content. Paradigm One clearly made a very large and long-lasting impact on our Fellows, and we look forward to having them back with us for years to come."

– PRESIDENT
National Society for Black Engineers (NSBE)

"Paradigm One kicked off the year by engaging our members in a SPECTACULAR session focused on building confidence and communication skills. This event was one of our most well attended events of the year. . . funny, relevant, and extremely engaging. Working with Paradigm One was a pleasure -- highly recommended!!"

– DIRECTOR
Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT)

"...a superb facilitator and coach with the unique ability to connect with vast audiences, from teens to senior executives. Paradigm One delivered an engaging session on leadership presence and professional etiquette which left quite an impression on our leaders - it was the highest rated session of the summit!"

workshops

- Bernadette
dining Etiquette Workshop

"Toni is always professional and welcoming. She has a way about her that makes you feel comfortable and supported. She takes the time to get to know and understand you - not the person you think you are but your entire being. She sees the great and tries to emphasize that. 

Paradigm One hosted an etiquette class for our organization. She was fun, her presentation was engaging and the group was very cohesive. We enjoyed a great dinner and learned without it feeling like work. I learned more than I thought I would and now use it in every professional setting. Whenever in doubt, I ask myself  “what would Toni do” and try to emulate that."

- Tracy
Maximize Your Internship workshop

"I was a nervous sophomore coming into the financial services industry. Before this workshop, I struggled with accepting the talents and natural abilities I had. For our workshop, Toni's professionalism and relatability accompanied her enthusiastic personality. After this workshop, I felt more confident in introducing myself, connecting with professionals, and owning my career story. I'm amazed at the transition of my relationship with Toni after connecting with her. She has played a strategic role in my career success by inviting me to craft my career story and own every professional decision I make. I've grown personally and professionally because of Toni. She's an extraordinary professional and mentor!"

Personal Branding Workshop 

"The work Paradigm One does is indispensable, and I am so glad to have received the opportunity to receive these tips regarding etiquette and personal branding.
 
Today’s session initiated a self-discovery journey that I am now inspired to continue. While I have asked myself this very complex question of “Who am I?” multiple times, I have never received the guidance or support in dissecting my story and my personality in order to effectively answer that question. As a result, I’m really excited to continue to learn more about myself as well as my peers in the weeks to come."

- Maya
Maximize Your Internship

"I loved attending one of Paradigm One’s workshops so much, I wanted to share what I learned with others. Every topic she touched on was easy to understand. It was engaging, and motivating. I was inspired by the things we learned, and how much It personally helped me with my professional development. I invited Paradigm One to come and speak to our registered student organization, Future Business Leaders of Spelman. During this time many of us were able to work on our elevator pitches personally with Toni. She made the students feel comfortable with her. She also taught us about impression management as well as relationship management."

- Madison
Dining Etiquette Workshop
 

"Toni taught me the true power of words. Coming from an engineering background I shied away from sending assertive or opportunistic emails. However, she provided the necessary skills that opened me to the world of networking. As the only undergraduate intern at my previous summer internship, her dining etiquette lessons allowed me to stand strong aside my more mature colleagues during company lunches. Toni provided the necessary tools so I could focus on being me while completing my work. "

- Paloma
Networking Workshop


"Thank you for such an amazing session! I had always been terrified of networking due to my own insecurities and anxiety . . . it really put my 'fear' into perspective and I was able to utilize the skills and tools Paradigm One gave us to make meaningful connections for the rest of the conference. I feel like I had such an amazing and productive week, and I owe a lot of that confidence I felt while networking to Toni! I also appreciated learning networking etiquette since those tips were all things I had never heard of before. I know these tips will help me get through many doors throughout the years!"

Networking and Relationships Workshop

"I learned how to authentically build meaningful relationships by just being more myself. I realized how important it is to remember both personal and professional details about those I meet. This will help me build successful relationships over time and make me a greater resource in the relationships. I also received a great template on how to manage my contacts with reminders of key points to notate."

- James
Dining Etiquette Workshop

"Paradigm One's etiquette training helped me understand many of the 'unspoken' rules of business dinners. Toni was professional and used effective teaching techniques to help our group remember certain concepts. When I found myself at a fancy wedding reception dinner a few months later (four different glasses, multiple plates, and a spectrum of silverware), I knew exactly what to use for each course and was even able to help those around me navigate their table settings."

"Paradigm One built two customized multi-week small group coaching programs for a national audience sponsored by our company. From start to finish, the level of professionalism, attention to detail, quality of service, and passion to exceed expectations were apparent. Toni and her team led, managed and executed the programming with a remarkable sense of care and passion which directly contributed to the exemplary remarks and life-changing results for those who participated in either program. I highly recommend Paradigm One, and we look forward to leveraging their services for many more programs to come. "

"Toni is able to perfect both the structure (spacing/ punctuation/ font size), as well as the essence (phrasing, aesthetic appeal, personalization) of a resume. Toni also mastered our LMS (learning management system) platform, where all the editing takes place virtually. 

Our experience with Paradigm One as a resume editor leaves us sure that every interaction with her will be: professional, impeccable, and elegant. We cannot recommend Paradigm One highly enough."
