Speaker Testimonials

Over the last 10 years at Google, myself and my team have attended hundreds of hours of corporate trainings. When I saw what Vanessa did differently, and heard about her other Fortune 500 clients that have had tremendous success, I knew I had to hire her to bring something unique. I have never gotten such positive feedback from Googlers before. I will hire Vanessa again hands down.
Katie Rottier

Former Head of Industry/Retail, Google

When we set out to launch our first customer conference, we wanted to include a session that would wake people up and get them to think different about their lives and their purpose in the world. Including a session on mindfulness for hundreds of Fortune 500 data & analytics leaders felt like a gamble, but it paid-off in spades. We received amazing feedback about Vanessa’s talk.  If you want to offer your employees, partners, or customers a truly unique experience, Vanessa is someone you should absolutely engage.
