What Clients Say
“Lynne was the opening keynote for the Project Management Institute of New Zealand’s annual conference where she spoke of the value of whole brained thinking. She presented her ideas in such a way that really resonated with the 350 delegates, so much so that people could be overhead discussing her ideas throughout the conference. Her ability to engage with the audience combined with her enthusiasm and energy really set the tone for the rest of the conference. I would recommend her to any group or conference looking to promote the importance of valuing diversity amongst people working together”
Karen Clarke, Project Managers Institute of New Zealand

Martin Richards, Group Development Manage, Storage King
“We’ve been having our management conferences for a long time and this years’ was a chance to renew and refresh as a team. Your session hit the nail on the head and helped us understand each other and develop a deeper respect for the diversity of the thinking in our team and how we can use that to our benefit. Your positivity and input flowed through to the rest of the day; I’m sure we will see the benefits of your sessions for a long time to come.”
