"I would highly recommend Gina. Her life story itself is inspirational, but her eloquence and delivery further engaged everyone. There was so much to consider after her presentation as an individual about our personal empowerment. I could relate to every aspect and felt really motivated to pass on those crucial messages to my staff and ensure that they in turn motivate our children to believe in themselves and be 'winners!' An excellent session, thank you.

Very informative and indeed inspiring. It really helped me re-focus my role as a leader. 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!"
"Having reached the point at which I felt I was in danger of letting work completely dominate my life, working with Gina has helped me put work and all its pressures back into a more sensible perspective. I am now organizing myself and my time (work and personal) in a calmer, more rational manner.
Thank you Gina"
Mike P, Chief Executive
"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."
K Laryea, West London
"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's approach and style were excellent, engaging, informative, inspirational, entertaining and captivated our groups attention. Thank you for providing such an insiteful evening."

"I would like tae this opportunity to thank you for the assistance that you have provided me with in recent months.
Through your coaching sessions you have helped me to not only maintain but strengthen my focus and resolve on both a professional and personal level. As you know, the year 2008 holds many exciting challenges for me and you have helped me to view those forthcoming challenges with a fresh perspective; the net result of this has been greater efficiency and a sense of no task is beyond me,
I look forward to continuing to work with you as I believe that we have only 'scratched the surface' in terms of potential. I would strongly recommend that anyone with ambitions for the New Year, bid or small consult you for some coaching as the benefits are huge.
Gavin Perret, Quantum Mortgages, Regent Street. London
"Gina's workshops on preparing young people for employment have given our students a thorough insight into the whole employment process from the perspective of an employer. What made the sessions so useful was the way in which Gina shared her experience of being on a number of interview panels as well as her research into recruitment at other organisations. Our Sixth Formers are now much better equipped not only to secure the all important first interview, but also to ensure that they make the most of their induction period in order to achieve promotion."

"Gina was a real inspiration. I'm going to put her picture on the wall to remind me not to moan - rather to get on and solve!!!"
