"Very engaging with good use of straight forward illustrative techniques and stories which work in a pragmatic and proactive way. Clear concise style that was easy to follow and maintained interest throughout."
David Cohen, DMC Consulting Ltd., 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
"A great talk with many ideas which I can take back into the work place and use in so many situations"
Louise Whitcham, St Andrews School, Southgate
"Hello, my name is Colleen. I'm a senior HR professional and experienced organizational development consultant. And I've known Gina Gardner for several years now and found her to be an excellent support and coach and each coaching session with Gina proved very insightful and very powerful and the most recent helped me recognize the lifestyle changes that I needed to make.
For myself and I made a career move and lifestyle moved to a different part of the country and it proved hugely successful, which I'm still reaping the benefits from so I'll be eternally grateful to Gina and if I need coaching in the future, I wouldn't hesitate and in fact, I'm trying to persuade someone close to me at the moment to take up that offer because I think they would benefit hugely."
"WOW!!! Gina is an amazing story teller and my kind of gal. Her talk and the way she presents it makes so much sense. We are all changed as a result of listening to her. Thank you!!!"
Tracy Shave, Moulding Futures, Chelmsford
"Great teachers don't teach, they help you to learn. That is very much Gina's modus operandi. Some of the most important realisations in my business life have sprung from conversations with Gina. The difference, I suspect, is that she knew I would reach those inescapable conclusions, while I didn't until they dropped into place. I can never thank her enough."
One man business, South Wales
"I am writing to say thank you for the business coaching we have received so far. Even after 4 sessions we are already putting your plans into action, which we find very beneficial to the growth of our company. My business partner and I found ourselves only planning in the short term, rather than looking at the bigger picture. But with your sessions we can now see what direction we need to go.
It has been a pleasure being coached by you, as you are very professional, friendly and you always make us feel at home.
We will be happy to recommend you to other business owners and will also continue to use your services in future."
Dave Fuller, GT Design & Print Ltd Shenfield
"Gina Gardiner is a brilliant life coach and consulting with her was the best investment I made.
She helped me enoremously to put life in perspective and find an excellent coping mechanism, to deal with the huge of amount of stress I was dealing with at the time.
She guided me through some childhood patterning that was no longer serving me well, and assisted in my biggest one of being a total workaholic.
I felt totally supported, boosted and encouraged by Gina throughout the coaching process, and in the end, I managed to transform my life. I had learnt new strategies of dealing with difficult situations and thinking much more out the box, with a solution based approach to challenges and felt so much better about myself.
All my friends could see a complete and very positive transformation in me and I am so pleased I had been recommended to Gina.
I would highly recommend Gina for all types of coaching."
"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!"
Pat Wood, Eversley Enfield
"Since meeting Gina just over 2 years ago, I have come to realise what an important resource a life and executive coach is to a serial workaholic, which I have been for many years.
Gina has been at my side (metaphorically) throughout the last 2 and a half years as my life and executive coach and our relationship and her support has led to numerous life-changing experiences that, without Gina, I don't believe would have been possible.
Although I am considered to be a successful (some say high-flying) grown-up (I'm 36) and happily married, I have come to realize there are certain areas of my life that need a little (ok, maybe a lot) of attention. Relationships in my life, both personal and professional, have been challenging at times and Gina has worked with me to discover new and successful ways of approaching these challenges. Together we have identified potential new ways to behave and communicate with my team and my boss at work as well as with my parents and my husband.
Gina has been the enabler in helping me release more of my personal potential and she has taught me how to prepare for the future. In looking at the potential future in different ways, I have been able to identify new opportunities for personal and professional growth and I have had the most incredible journey.
Gina has been there at the moments in my life when I've needed the voice of reason and rational thought. She has shown me ways of dealing with life's roller-coasters by employing new strategies and new behaviours. I have developed courage and strengthened my self-confidence because of her support and guidance. She never tells me anything, she merely asks me searching questions which seem to push the right buttons and elicit responses which develop new strategies.
