“I had the opportunity to see Ms. Birkett amongst her peers at a NYC Department of Education event for the Empowering Boys series. Ms Birkett was selected to speak about the importance of educating students of color and her personal call and drive to close the achievement gap. She was a charismatic and dynamic presenter who inspired an audience of educational leaders… she is an accomplished educational professional. She is an intelligent, visionary and dedicated educator. I felt very fortunate to work with a committed educational leader.”

"On behalf of the Roc-A-Natural Team, I would like to thank Tandra Birkett for her services as the Mistress of Ceremony for the Roc-A-Natural Hair, Health and Beauty Transform Your Life Expo on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at the Schomburg Research Center for Black Culture, Harlem. Your quick wit, articulate and descriptive delivery of fabulous fashion designs by Carlton Jones, NY, Yvonne Jewnell, NY and Tafari Tribe, NY kept the audience engaged, excited and in anticipation of what was up next, all without being rehearsed or aware of run of show. Amazing! I look forward to working with Tandra Birkett and I highly recommend her as a Speaker for your next event!
