Testimonials

Hear what some of the world’s top athletes, media personalities and sports business people have to say about working with Yolanda.

Yo knows athletes.  I was always impressed how she had her finger on the pulse of who was new and who was hot from the emerging athlete to the veterans.  She was a recruiter and promoter of women in sports before there was a women’s sports industry

Dawn Riley, Sailing Champion, CEO & Captain for the historic all-women America’s Cup team AmericaTrue

“Yolanda is a connector, advocate, trailblazer and promoter at all levels of sport. She has had a direct impact on moving women’s sport forward through her undivided attention in assisting athletes succeed in sport and life. I have had the fortune of knowing Yo since I first attended the Women’s Sport Foundation Dinners in the 1990’s. As an athlete in a small non-Olympic sport (squash), I was honored to be treated with the same attentiveness as the high profile athletes, which is a direct reflection of her character.”
