What stood out to me was Dr Ashley’s dynamic speaking style, which effortlessly captured the attention of the audience throughout the entire session. Her delivery was both confident and engaging, making complex leadership concepts relatable to everyone in the room. We received lots of positive feedback from our guests and Dr Ashley’s presentation left attendees equipped with practical strategies to enhance their leadership skills, particularly during times of uncertainty and crisis.

I highly recommend Dr Ashley as a speaker for any event or organisation seeking an exceptional leadership expert. She was the perfect speaker for our luncheon and her professionalism ensured that all arrangements in the lead up to the event and on the day ran smoothly. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with Dr Ashley again in the future.

We engaged Stacey as a guest speaker for a small group of our senior leaders at a Regional workshop we ran recently and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. Her communication from the moment the enquiry was sent online was incredible – from personal phone calls, consultations and programs sent to us promptly. She supported our planning in the lead up to the workshop and was in regular communication to ensure we were all on the same page.

She tailored the program to support our specific needs and the topics she covered were relevant to the current climate many leaders are working in. Our group left armed with tangible actions we could implement in both our work life and personal life. It has changed the way we work and think – thank you Stacey!
