“When Ms. Levine introduced her story methods and Matrix Model Management System, lights went off! Telling our stories breaks down barriers and lets us react on a different level.”
   ~ Online Wall Street Journal

“For several months, I worked with Deborah Levine as we planned the Living Well, Living Longer Community Health Conference. Typical of Deborah’s style, it was a broad-based event engaging literally hundreds of people in the planning process. Her Matrix Model Management System was an excellent tool for team building, dealing with conflict & decision making with a diverse crowd.”
     ~ Rae Young Bond, Executive Director
Chattanooga & Hamilton County Medical Society

“In my role as a Human Resource Manager, the training and cultural awareness of the Matrix Model Management System will allow me to relate to others as they would like without assuming what they want or need.”
