'I have worked with Vanessa for over 3 years now and she is one of the most refreshing, passionate, energetic, optimistic, and thought-provoking coaches and creative business strategists.

She is extremely versatile able to move effortlessly between delivering high level and high impact strategic seminars and workshops on future business, societal & consumer insights & trends (She presented a very dynamic Transformation seminar to a group of HRDs in 2018), to more intimate group coaching sessions on self-reflection, self -awareness & purpose.  Even on these more personal topics, she is able to challenge to higher thinking and self-discovery and connect with her audience. Her style always captures the attention and respect of her participants– she is highly engaging, positive, participative and accessible. She uses relevant and relatable models and concepts that resonate instantly and can be applied straight away.  I always look forward to opportunities to work with Vanessa to inform and inspire and support and coach others.'

 

Talent Management & Acquisition Director, LVMH FASHION GROUP

'Vanessa – I cannot share how amazing your impact was today. Thank you SO much for joining us and inspiring so many women at LS&Co. I think people shared their appreciation with you directly, but if you ever need a reminder of your strength, your vision and your power, remember every single one of those 120 women out of their seats cheering for you.

 Your story and your passion resonated with so many women in the room today. You were the voice we needed to hear at the moment we needed to hear it.'

 

Senior Director of Corporate Affairs for Europe, LEVI STRAUSS & CO

 

'It's been a delight to work with [Vanessa and her collaborators] who helped us design, pilot and run a series of 'Inclusion essentials' training sessions for our staff and trustees. [They] brought a huge amount of intellect, practical expertise, energy and great facilitation skills - particularly for delivery on a remote basis. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again on future projects'

Head of Influence, COMIC RELIEF

'Vanessa has a unique ability to tackle hard-hitting and ‘uncomfortable’ topics in the most inspiring, motivational and positive way possible. Her matter-of-fact delivery, and deep understanding of our industry, along with insightful context of the current climate in regards to social justice and D&I, enabled our team to reflect and evaluate the role we each play as individuals as well as the working parts in a wider system, and opened up conversations in a way that hadn’t happened previously. We ended the session not only better educated, but empowered and inspired to implement our learnings with concrete tools and strategies to do so. She created a safe space and struck a perfect balance between reflective and practical, with enough time to evaluate our own positions but no time to dwell without taking action! We will certainly be working with her again in the future.'
