Courtney Underwood is the real deal! I was fortunate enough to meet Courtney when we both spoke on a panel at Success Junkie Summit. Since then, I’ve gotten to experience her phenomenal work with Kassar Consulting. From seeing this great work, I asked her to come to speak to my students at Chicago Urban League’s NextDEAL Entrepreneurship program. She lead an amazing presentation on best HR and business practices, and she was one of the classes favorite presenters. I highly recommend Courtney if you need a dynamic speaker, presenter, or HR needs for your business.
