"From the moment Gina took to the stage our audience were transfixed. With her blend of story telling and common sense approach we were all able to take great value from the rock solid techniques and advice offered.
Gina is one of those speakers that you could listen to again and again because she communicates with honesty, passion and emotion. Gina shares her experiences and expertise readily and is incredibly generous with her time.
I suggest that anyone who has the opportunity to hear Gina speak clears their diary and books their place without delay.
I also highly recommend Gina's book 'Chariots on Fire', an incredibly accessible and useful read. Gina's renown as a specialist in Personal Empowerment and Leadership is well deserved. "
Nick Looby - Chairman Essex Business Club
"It has been a pleasure working with Gina as part of the Confident Leaders Development Programme and as our main ILM tutor she has played a vital role in the success of the programme from start to finish.
Gina's vast experience, professionalism and excellent training methods in delivering our level 2 and level 3 ILM courses have been outstanding with very positive feedback from all learners that she guided to successful completion. Her willingness and flexibility to adapt her delivery methods to the needs of the target group have been excellent in ensuring that the learners have been inspired with confidence to complete the programme and seek progression through further training opportunities.
A committed and reliable tutor, we would strongly consider using Gina's services again for any similar future training programmes."

"My name is Esther Greene and I'm currently studying French and Spanish at the University of Southampton. Gina has been a huge help to me this year. Her sessions have really helped me understand how to make sense of emotions and situations as well as how to take control in my life. I would thoroughly recommend her as a life-coach! "
"Gina's approach and style were excellent, engaging, informative, inspirational, entertaining and captivated our groups attention. Thank you for providing such an insiteful evening."
Jill Knight - Jill Knight HR Consulting Colchester
"Very much enjoyed Gina's talk on building emotional and professional resilience. Gina is an inspiring and engaging speaker, I wish the session was longer as I could have listened to her all evening!
She gave a whole new meaning to the expression 'playing to our strengths' and not allowing our perceived limitations to restrict us. What makes it more special is that it all stems from Gina's own journey and challenges which gave the talk real integrity. It was great to listen to examples of how one can turn problems into stepping stones.
Some brilliant practical tools and tips, some of which I will certainly be practising! Thank you!"
Alex Klokkaris, Colchester
"Gina was very inspirational. Her positive attitude has given me lots to think about. Thank you!!"

"Gina Gardiner had been highly recommended by one of my clients. She had found the sessions with her most helpful.
I had arrived at a point in my life where I thought 'Is this it?', I felt sure there must be more to life than just 'this'.
I was working phenomenally long hours and having very little social life and could certainly not face another 15 - 20 years more of the same. Also my life had been full of difficulties and upsets so I found I had become somewhat disillusioned with life.
That was till Gina came along. She has helped me turn my life around. I no longer work ridiculously long hours. I am no longer a slave to the job. I am so busy gallivanting with a wonderful new social life, meeting lots of new friends and discovering a whole new world out there I did not know existed. I have even taken the brave step of a new business venture and have secured my first property for rental.
What Gina helped me achieve is realizing I have options. She has shown me that the future can be rosy and achievable, and I can have a wonderful life NOW.
I have recommended her to a number of friends and clients who want the most out of life because they can all see the difference in me and want to break out of their own rut.
From a very, very grateful client."

"I thought I would send a short email to say how much I enjoyed the training at Wickford yesterday. I myself have often facilitated our Skills to Foster course, for prospective foster carers and, more recently as required by the CA '04 , a raising awareness campaign. This entailed doing presentations to a number of partner agencies, as well as to staff members in our own Department. I mention this only to share that I have some little insight into the world of training and presentations.
I thought that your presentation was clear, informative and relevant. Having said that, it must also be mentioned that your pitch and clarity of voice were very good, as was your interaction with all participants.
I am also grateful for the handout on Attachment and the way you related this to the subject matter.
Thank you for a very professional afternoon."
Win Escallier , Senior Practitioner, Private Fostering, Basildon
"At the end of 2007, I was fortunate enough to meet a lady who has guided me through my fears and uncertainties. Previously when I thought about 'the future' it was a scary prospect and somewhere I didn't want to think about. Being enabled to express my feelings openly has made me and makes the future something to be embraced rather than feared."

"I was totally engaged throughout Gina's presentation. She not only gave out key messages for success in our work life but in our personal lives in general!"
