Keynote Speaking Clients & Testimonials

Some of the partners we've had the pleasure of working with recently for Change & Resilience Speaking Engagements.

"Ciara was phenomenal…by far the best facilitator and speaker that I have seen! She was warm, engaging and welcoming. The session was really thought-provoking, even emotional at times, with lots of key takeaways that our leaders can go away and implement as soon as next week when they are back with the wider team.

Why did we book Ciara?  She is the leading expert in this space and all of our interactions with her leading up to the event were so positive.  Having just finished the session, the room is absolutely feeling pumped and ready to tackle change moving forward!"

PAGE GROUP AUSTRALIA   REIMAGINE CHANGE® KEYNOTE SPEAKER

"Ciara Lancaster was a great addition to our global conference! She was very adaptable to our unusual circumstances and was able to help problem-solve with us to make it a great event. The content was highly relevant to the audience and very well received; we had a lot of people telling us they were interested in reading Reimagine Change after seeing her dynamic presentations. Ciara was highly professional before, during and after the event and brought a lot of positive energy and “can do” spirit to the whole experience. Ciara should be on everyone’s shortlist for keynote speakers!"
