Tania met with us to learn about the team, tailored content and even provided pre-work to engage participants. Tania gave real life examples from her corporate life, shared strategies and practical ways we could take action immediately. She also created space for participants to share best practices which deepened our sense of community. I appreciated that she followed up with ideas of how to keep momentum going in our office post-workshop. I’d recommend Tania for corporate teams and leadership development.”

It was challenging but very helpful to see myself on stage and try things out in the safe environment Tania created. The workshop also contributed significantly to team building as we were able to further design our team’s goals and build awareness around communication styles.
I would highly recommend Tania as a corporate trainer, anyone leading teams would really benefit from working with her. Within matrix organizations, these techniques can be applied by anyone needing to influence and communicate their ideas persuasively.”

Our most in-demand Leadership Accelerator is our signature Networking Mastery Program. This program is often part of global diversity and inclusion initiatives and top talent development programs.

I'm looking forward to engaging Tania again in the future to assist in the development of our Business Banking talent.”

“Wow – just completed the Networking Mastery bootcamp and have to say it was one of the best classes I’ve taken in my career. The structured approach helped open my eyes to blind spots I had in the areas of networking and sponsorship. I thank Tania for her master facilitation skills; her follow up during and after the course proves that she practices what she preaches. You want this woman in your circle!

    Network Mastery Workshop was by far one of the most inspiring training I have ever attended. She ensured we were all engaged and invested 100% in the course. Her storytelling methods and frameworks are profound yet practical and have enabled me to connect with global peers and mentors. I realized how much I had allowed day-to-day routines and other distractions come between my professional goals. She has helped to put my goals back on track, and I was able to reset my action plans and priorities accordingly. “

She is also a very welcoming and charismatic person, which made her keynote a very pleasant experience!” ”

Tatiana Grossi

Business Analyst, Intel, Germany

“Tania is a powerful speaker with an ability to influence and energize the audience. At the DisruptHR conference, she spoke about how Sponsors can become game changers for Protégés as compared to Mentors. And why we need more and more sponsors for women in today's workforce than mentors. Given an opportunity, I would love to explore on leveraging this concept personally or professionally.”
