Joanna has been a keynote speaker for many organisations, particularly Professional & Financial Services. The type of events Joanna speaks at include:

Corporate conferences to help your people focus on a topic they might not usually consider and implement new ways of communicating themselves and engaging with others.

Team building days to help your team think about how they engage with one another as a team, which can help motivate and encourage them to work more positively and effectively together.

Networking events to give individuals an opportunity to consider which skills they need to work on beyond their technical ones to improve their performance and the performance of their organisation whilst also improving their career progression.

Professional body conferences to provide members with the opportunity to consider their non-technical skill development and get broader value from their professional body membership.

CPD events to help individuals get the development they need in soft skill areas to broaden their professional development and progress their careers.

As a guest speaker, Joanna has extensive experience in keynote speaking to positively kick off significant events, as well as speaking to smaller groups.

The session Joanna ran for us was very well received. She was highly engaging and her talk was insightful with plenty of helpful tips to take away. The audience also appreciated the interaction through polls and the opportunity to ask questions. We would highly recommend Joanna for her talk on 'Navigating Organisational Politics Positively'.

— Alexandra Anderson, Partner, RPC

Joanna delivered a talk to over 50 professionals, all of which were delegates of International Professionals Association.

The talk, its content, how it was delivered and the feedback I have received from pretty much everyone that attended has been exemplary, so it is not surprising that some of the audience as well as myself the MD of Sovereign UK Ltd will call on the expert services that Joanna delivers.

Regardless of ones abilities, I contend that periodically, persons like Joanna and what specifically she offers should be commissioned and put to good use. Thank you again Joanna.

— Simon Denton, Managing Director, Sovereign Group

Joanna presented at our full-day conference themed ‘Cultivate excellence within yourself, others, and your organisation', on the topic ‘Managing upwards and side-ways positively and effectively’, which was a perfect fit for the theme.

Her 1.5 hour slot enabled time to fully engage with the delegates in explaining context, working through interactive exercises, and Q&A - a perfectly balanced slot.

Joanna is an excellent presenter in that she doesn’t simply stand at the front of the room and talk at delegates for the duration. She walks between tables, poses questions as she goes, provokes food for thought, encourages delegates to respond and interact. She has a wonderfully relaxed, composed, and professional demeanor, which hugely helps delegates to engage with her.

Joanna was a pleasure to work with, from first contact to discussions on presentation content, through to meeting her on the day – a sheer delight!

I would very highly recommend engaging Joanna to present at an event.
