“At TATA, we’re striving to drive a high performance culture. Shona has facilitated Inspiring Peak Performance workshops targeting people managers across our EMEA region to really ‘sharpen the saw’ in terms of their key management skills. The feedback we received from delegates was fantastic – Shona is a high energy and hugely engaging facilitator with the ability to get great interaction from groups of managers at all levels, different functions and cultures.”

Suzanne Watts

EMEA HR Director, TATA Group

“I was introduced to Shona via a colleague in the UK. We initially piloted the workshop with one of my teams, focusing on developing a strong performance culture based on belief and behaviours. Following the initial series of workshops and internal follow up sessions, my team started the journey of improved performance. The team have continued to develop and deliver and importantly sustain this since that initial workshop almost 12 months ago. Shona’s drive, energy and relentless focus and passion for what she believes continues to support my business as we roll out the program across the wider team.”

Ashley Taylor

Executive Director, Premium Banking, Royal Bank of Scotland

“We recently launched a ‘Women in Leadership’ initiative within Lockton in the Middle East region and we wanted to kick it off with a workshop which would help the development of our future female leaders here at Lockton. Shona tailor-made a session to suit our particular requirements and was attentive to every detail. The afternoon was dynamic, fun and extremely informative. It was highly appreciated by the diverse range of females in the room. Shona is clearly extremely passionate about this subject and that passion was addictive. I would highly recommend her to any other company wanting to invest in their females – she will definitely exceed expectations.”
