“Your session was the highlight of Dreamforce for me this year. We’re incredibly thrilled with the outcome and, more importantly, so were our Foundation customers. They didn’t want to leave the room! It was summed up best by a participant who told us: “In the 6 years I ‘ve been coming to Dreamforce, this is the best session I have ever been to.” We couldn’t have asked for a better response than that.”
— Alexis Kheir, Strategic Value Executive, Salesforce
“The techniques you shared in the workshop at Dreamforce are already helping us to unlock challenges back at work. I shared your reframing technique with my leadership team and the results were simply incredible.We now have a completely new point of view that had hitherto been hidden from us. It gives us a fresh approach to an age-old problem. Thank you so much for sharing this powerful technique with us.“
