|"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!"

|"When I took over a new team I wanted to create a shared vision within an improved team environment and make better use of the team's time. Gina devised and facilitated a super 4 hour workshop which she delivered at my office in Canary Wharf. I met with her before the meeting and was able to explore not only the areas I felt were blocking progress and the potential issues facing the team. I found the discussion extremely useful in developing my role as the leader of the team and in planning the strategies to use with the team.|
We worked as a team throughout the session. Everyone was successfully encouraged to take ownership of the issues and see themselves as part of the solution.
During the session we identified several things which were getting in the way of optimum team efficiency and which constantly drained our resources. Gina ensured that everyone had a voice and that there was a real sense of "team". Everyone felt valued and even the tricky issues were fully aired and dealt with in a positive and constructive way.
We developed, together as a cohesive unit, strategies and approaches that we were all willing and keen to adopt to improve our efficiency and effectiveness. The session was very practical but fun too. People were fully engaged in the process
All our thoughts and ideas were recorded in a very well executed, team-building environment. We left the session with priorities identified and a cohesive plan to move the agenda forward for ourselves and with other departments and with the Senior Management Team of the company.
Back at the desk, the team felt they had been offered a great opportunity to air their frustrations and share their ideas. They had been empowered to find their own solutions and resources that could be easily employed to produce better results.
The results of the session were lasting and far reaching. We had together created a way of making far better use of our individual and team time and manage the expectations of other departments.
It was a really worthwhile session which I recommend Gina to any manager who wants to build the department's sense of team or more efficient and effective use of the team's time.

|"I saw Alex last night at the HCCI Exec Board meeting.|
He said that for years he has been trying to get Jenny to do something for herself or accompany him to events but he couldn't convince her.
In the short time that has taken place since the workshop, jenny is asking to go along to different things. he said that on Tuesday they went to a HCCI event and he said he was really proud watching her take part.
Quite honestly, I think we have a star in the making.
Well done you!"
|"Before contacting Gina I was lacking direction & belief in myself. I never thought I'd come out of the other side so quickly. I am very thankful that I have Gina in my life. It was through working with her that I turned mine and my sons life around and have been living my life again from a place of strength, I've learnt to value myself again and it has helped me to discover who I am and what I want for me and my family.|
I have learned so much from her and feel that she has inspired me to develop into who I was created to be. I thank God for her amazing talent in helping me tremendously and for that I am forever thankful.
Gina has had much valuable input into my life. I have learned so much from her and she has inspired me to develop into who I was created to be.
I thank God that Gina came into my life and made great things happen , I've made some pretty big changes! And, I'm feeling MUCH more confident and centered, how can you put a value on that? My family, friends and colleagues have noticed big changes in me. My life has turned completely around.
I thought it would take six months, maybe a year or even more and was surprised when Gina suggested I booked 10 sessions and she would refund me for any sessions that I did not use. After the first session I knew if anyone could use their magic on me it would be Gina, it was a magnificent start. She supported and encouraged me through her highly accurate listening and feedback skills. I found the sessions exciting, motivational and worth every penny.
I am on my way to a happier and healthier future, I highly recommend Gina to anyone ready to make some big changes, her insight and direction is so valuable - and you cannot help catching her enthusiasm for life."

|"Gina is a fabulous coach, I came to her because, I knew I wanted a change, but just wasn't how to become clear about it. She helped me to become very clear about how to articulate what I wanted, so that I could translate my idea in such a way that I could begin making some hard cash. I am very grateful for her expertise. Coaches come a dime a dozen, but this type of really good coach is very rare. I would thoroughly recommend Gina for the fastest route to success."|

|"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|
|"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. "
