"Shona worked with us recently to launch our programme of seminars to support women. Shona's seminar on "The Psychology of Success" was very well attended and created a huge buzz in the room. I was so pleased with the positive feedback we received for the event, as it has led the way for future seminars. I found Shona very engaging to work with and her enthusiasm for this topic is very contagious! I look forward to working with Shona further in the near future. Some of the feedback from our employees included:
'This was the most valuable session I have attended at Bird & Bird.'
'A fantastic empowering session that made me feel motivated. Some great strategies.'"

Bird & Bird
"As an organisation that supports women in progressing their careers in male dominated environments, Shona Rowan is the ideal inspirational speaker for our members. Shona has run several workshops for WTS London and these have all been a huge success! The sessions were all on different topics, including networking, personal branding and the psychology of successful women, but they all incorporated the same high level energy and interaction that has proved to be extremely popular. We have had fantastic feedback and our members appreciate the practical advice they take away from these sessions that they can apply immediately to their day-to-day roles."

The event was a great success, our clients and staff were very impressed with Shona and found her to be an engaging presenter. We look forward to working again with Shona.

"I have worked with Shona recently on the International Women’s Day events that Citi hosted in London. We put together 2 fantastic sessions; one an invitation only senior management breakfast on "Managing Through Adversity" and a second lunchtime ‘open to all session’ on "Managing Your Career in an Ever Changing Corporate Environment". Both were very well attended and we had super feedback on both! Shona’s delivery style is very enthusiastic, polished and professional."
