        Working with Vanessa has given my presentation skills a huge boost. I enjoy public speaking and presenting but lacked the ability to truly support my ideas with data. Vanessa has made me a more well-rounded speaker and effective presenter, helping me bring a greater degree of authority to my delivery.

Manager, Product Design
        Vanessa is a role model and a leader. Her ability to look around corners, present with confidence and drive consensus turned what was supposed to be an experiment into a global program. She did this all in a male dominated world where she faced challenges before she even started.
