Corinne made such a positive impression as a facilitator at the SheLeads event. Her energy, enthusiasm, and passion clearly had a contagious effect on the audience, and her topic on leveraging LinkedIn and motivating attendees to take action is commendable. Corinne had the gift to connect with the audience authentically and empowered us to use our voices.

I had the privilege of seeing Corinne do some pretty amazing WRK at our annual DEI summit.

She is a gifted facilitator – engaging, humorous, insightful and most of all, impactful. She was able to make the uncomfortable comfortable, allowing attendees to look deep at implied bias, power structures and (mis)perceptions. Compelling dialogue followed, and she guided the group with ease so each attendee arrived at their own meaningful outcome. She left us better than she found us, with a renewed sense of awareness and an improved skill set for engaging with each other.

Kudos Corinne and thank you for the great session.
