“Joanne has used her extensive business world experiences to put together a very informative primer for those involved in today’s workforce. A necessary read.”
-Dennis Swanson EVP and COO Viacom Television Stations Group
“Cini’s game is strong: High energy, high personal values, a focus and passion for her work. If your career is worth saving or worth upgrading, then Cini’s book is a must read. Written with candor and knowledge, Kingmaker is a blueprint on what to expect and how to achieve in a fast paced environment without losing yourself.”
- Frank Novak, Special Teams Consultant, Green Bay Packers
“I intend to buy this book for each of our staff members. It’s a clear, concise guide to how employees can achieve excellence, contribute to corporate goals AND satisfy their personal and professional objectives. In this insightful book, Ms. Cini tells you how to demand more of yourself, your company and your managers and come out a winner.”
-Christine Watkins, President and CEO, INVISION Inc.
“Finally, a mentor for each of us. This is a wonderful guided tour of life in corporate America, written in complete, sometimes painful, honesty. Joanne [Cini] is a career counselor without an agenda or conflict of interest. She gives the reader an up close and personal look at the workworld, while insisting on a close and honest look in the mirror. Ultimately, Kingmaker, is a very personal journey on the road to self-reliance and personal responsibility."
- Lisa G. Churchville, President and General Manager, NBC 10 Providence
"For most of us, empowerment is still a buzz word. Cini, like the mentor you always wanted, guides you to its full meaning in your career -- to purposeful, wide-eyed analysis and decisions about what's right for you."
-Wendy Tynan, General Manger, Rogen International.
"The journey Joanne takes us through is based on her own personal odyssey. That said, anyone who has spent a day in the life of Corporate America will relate to her observations. This is an astute chronicle of pitfalls to avoid, road bumps to maneuver and challenges to aspire to. ENJOY THE RIDE!
- Bill Cella, Chairman, MAGNA Global USA.
“Kingmaker is a new twist on an old adage: to thine own self be true. Cini’s contention, that you must take control of your own life and career in order to define your value potential in the competitive market of big business, is an important lesson for anyone looking to succeed in today’s business world.”
- Ray Heacox, CEO, MediaOcean a DDS Company
“Honesty is pure oxygen in a world dominated by cynics. Joanne Cini’s efforts to instruct others based on her experiences—honest lessons learned in one of the world’s pressure cookers, New York City broadcasting—is worth taking note of.”
—Louis Columbus, Senior Analyst, AMR Research
