— Former Investment Banker
I met Joanna as I was pivoting in my career at a senior level and I needed guidance on building my brand, improving my networking skills, demonstrating gravitas and having impact at C level. Joanna had practical advice that made an immediate difference. She’s a very positive, kind and attentive listener who is able to successfully walk you through each step of the challenging moments of your career with a smile.

Having had the pleasure to see Joanna in action delivering a session to our newly qualified associates the other week, I can highly recommend her to other firms looking to run training on professional impact.
— Mark, Regional Director London, South and West, Allied Irish Bank
We asked Joanna to help us develop a programme for employees who had expressed a desire to develop their Personal Impact and Networking capabilities. Working collaboratively with us, Joanna developed and delivered an interactive, lively and ultimately very well received set of workshops.
The feedback from the delegates was excellent and has prompted us to look at our next set of development needs. Thank you Joanna, you are such a pleasure to work with.
— Director, Head of European Infrastructure
I had received my promotion to team head. I was in a tough spot, trying to navigate my way through some difficult political situations and what felt like a very toxic environment.
Joanna got straight to the point and started to help me unpick where the issues were, the direct conversations I needed to have, and getting me to see things from a different perspective. I can honestly say that 7 sessions later, I am a different person with highly improved political intelligence.
— Programme Manager, HSBC
I approached Joanna at a very stagnant and discouraging point in my career. Joanna quickly identified the areas that needed work in just in an initial session. Joanna helped me identify my personal brand, work on strategic relationships, network effectively and become more politically intelligent.
Over the last few months, I faced several challenging and changing circumstances, Joanna was available at the end of a phone call to give me direction whilst reassuring me. I always looked forward to my sessions with Joanna. She showed empathy and gave me the right feedback in the most gentle manner.

I wanted to change the behaviours and consequently improve the performance of our finance team. Joanna designed and delivered a well thought out, engaging programme for an 'away day' that left the team feeling energised and enthused.
— Sedina Aidam, Director and Assistant General Counsel, Bank of America
Joanna has delivered a number of soft skills workshops for the Creating Pathways mentees and the BSN network. Joanna is a great presenter. Her sessions are very engaging, interactive and there are always great take aways for attendees. I look forward to working with Joanna again.
— Business Owner
Joanna has been wonderful to work with. She has offered excellent support and advice for how to manage and progress with the issues I presented her with, in a clear and positive manner. We’ve worked through areas I was finding difficulty with, such as body language and relationship building in interview and networking situations, and she has helped me to improve upon how I present myself in different work environments.
