The line of speakers was truly incredible and I was particularly blown away by the insights shared with us by Dr Nneka Abulokwe, OBE.Saida B, The Whitehall & Industry Group Conference, LinkedIn Post
I have greatly enjoyed getting to speak with you – you are a brilliant guest, natural conversationalist, and passionate leader. You were vulnerable, enthusiastic, humble and energising, and our team feedback has already been highly positive and engaged. I want to thank you personally for your sharing your visions, philosophies and infusing the aspects of fun to carry people along in your leadership (we can so often forget about this)! I loved to hear your solution-driven mindset, the power of failures, and that DEI is only as good as the people who utilise it – that it’s incumbent on us to drive the organisation and teams forward. We are delighted to have learned from you today, and it will surely keep us learning for the future.Head of Sales, Google
Speaking to us about the importance of ‘people-centric governance’ – putting the people first and the governance follows – she [Dr Nneka] posits that governance should invariably be about winning the hearts and minds of employees and about fostering a culture of accountability. It was a truly inspiring talk which had me in goosebumps for much of the 90+ minutes we had the pleasure of speaking with her. Great audience participation was inevitable given the brilliant and very thought-provoking content you delivered! Thank you again!Rachael E, EDF Energy
I wanted to reach to you to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you. I found your delivery to be engaging, refreshing, and comforting. You not only talked about some key hot topics in a clear consistent manner, your delivery came across as heartfelt, honest and meaningful.Kelly W, Private Client
