"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!"

"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'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."
Michelle Sonahan, Deputy Head, Robert Clack School
"On behalf of all our team of parent support advisers, we would like to thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to attend our area meeting and also for the inspirational and uplifting speech and presentation.
Thanks for being a wonderful, amazing woman and special person, and your generosity in sharing your gift of knowledge with people from all walks of life. Keep up the good work!"
"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
"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
"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
"Changing Lifecourse Training & Coaching
Gina is a very engaging speaker who communicates with passion, commitment and from the heart. The subject matter was extremely interesting and I would have loved to listen to her speak for much longer. I'm leaving the session feeling very positive and with several good ideas to put into action. Thank you!!!"
Clare Cracknell - Career Serve Co-Operative 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
"Hello, my name is Sue Lilley and I am a retired school teacher. After suffering a devastating personal problem, I contacted Gina.
We have been talking on the telephone every week for just over a year now and during that time Gina has given me the tools and strategies that I have needed in order to make lasting, positive changes in my life. She has shown me that I have the ability to deal with my own problems and become a more confident person.
Gina is a remarkable lady, she is kind, loving and truly supportive and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who wants to change their life for the better. "
