Me’chelle MeKenney is a passionate, charismatic pubic speaker! She has blessed the Wake County Public School System for the past 2 years by being a panel presenter in our Networking 101 session as part of “Great Xplorations”, an annual countywide event that hosts up to 600 - 800 high school students. She inspires young people and adults to work hard, to follow their dreams, and to master the art of networking and forging relationships that can be mutually beneficial in the future. Not only that, Ms. McKenney is always ready to help reach students in our public schools by classroom guest speaking or presenting at career fairs. She is personable and relatable to both teens and teachers. We sincerely appreciate her professionalism and support to help us educate and prepare students for their future endeavors.

As an advisor for the BRITE program, at North Carolina Central University, we’re always looking for different methods and ways to educate and motivate our students beyond the classroom and help prepare them for that next level after graduation. Upon meeting Ms. McKenney, of 3 rd Degree Solutions, and seeing her in action at a Wake County HS event, I knew that she was the impetus we needed to bring to our students at NCCU-BRITE. Not only did Ms. McKenney and her colleague Darius, bring a great measure of motivation, drive and passion to our campus, but they inspired our students to be more confident in who they are and be proud of their name. The BRITE students became more confident in their presentation skills after an excellent two part series with Ms. McKenney, in which they had to present in front of their peers. Many of those who were meek and mild now found a voice and discovered they too had a lot to say. The sessions on the importance of Leadership, Networking and Communication were especially invigorating as the students were able to learn key skills integral to their role as campus leaders, mentors and advocates for the students. They understood how to now transfer these skill sets to what would soon be there new reality, the workforce. We are truly indebted to Ms. Mckenney, for not only working with our students, but also being so dedicated to her craft so that we at NCCU-BRITE, were able to be the beneficiaries of all her hard work and commitment to helping others succeed in life.

I am writing on behalf of the North Carolina Central University chapter of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) regarding 3rd Degree Solutions services. I am Jessyka Faulkner and I was able to witness Mrs. McKenney's segments of professionalism for a month. Mrs. McKenney is very passionate about professionalism, networking, confidence and building a brand. I am a graduating young professional, and I am in the early stages of applying to jobs and receiving interviews.Before Mrs. McKenney's segment, I use to get so nervous and unsure when it's time to sell myself. Now, I can talk about myself in a way that doesn't seen unprofessional or unsure. Having her help us with professionalism impacted everyone involved in ISPE. She taught us that we are all leaders and that in order to become leaders we have to believe that we can impact others and ourselves. I would recommend her services for any group of young professionals who needs guidance in anything involving professionalism.  She is worth it! I am grateful for her and her services because she helped me realize a brand that I didn’t know existed.
