The joy of co-facilitating alongside Anni and witnessing life changing moments through Anni’s special gift to make people truly feel heard and understood is an experience I will always cherish
Leading with purpose is one of the most powerful abilities a team or an organisation or an individual can develop...
Anni and Russell did a fantastic job facilitating the programme. Their approach was measured and balanced and they instilled a positive and fun dynamic in the group, while also taking the time to invest in us as individuals. A highly valuable seven days, spent with some wonderfully inspirational people.

Anni is without doubt one of the best facilitators and coaches I have ever come across. She manages to get to both organisational and personal development and combine them in a way that is both challenging and empathetic at the same time. I know that every one of my top team value the work she did with us highly and would not hesitate to use her again.
Magic just seems to happen working with Anni. I have always admired her incredible knack for creating and then holding the space in which people can bring everything they are and give everything they have; and in many cases give and achieve more than they ever thought possible. Anni brings an intellect and generosity of spirit that together make for truly collaborative and powerful partnerships. Working in partnership with Anni means learning together, challenging one another and delivering great work that makes a difference to people, teams and organisations; and is a lot of fun along the way!
Anni offers tangible strategies that help people to overcome both personal and team challenges helping leaders in bringing out the best in people and ultimately enabling them to bring out the best in others.
Anni has been working with my Leadership team for the past 18 months. Our time together has been extremely valuable. Through her facilitation she has created a safe space for the team to have courageous conversations, build strong relationships, and think about how we show up as a team, and support each other as individuals. We always leave the sessions with positive actions to build on what we discussed, and the team always look forward to the next session. Anni has developed strong relationships with the team and is able to sense where the conversation needs to go to get the best outcomes. I cannot recommend Anni highly enough.
I have been collaborating with Anni to shape and design leadership and culture interventions which support and drive organisational ambitions for about 5 years now. I have been working in 3 very different organisations over the last few years, each of them with unique challenges and opportunities. In each, I have chosen to work with Anni to build, shape and deliver impactful leadership development programmes which help leaders create the culture for success within each of their unique contexts. Each time the results have been very positive and have surpassed my expectations (and the organisations’) around what was possible to achieve. On a personal level working with Anni is a truly engaging, insightful, positively challenging and a thoroughly fun process where we work at intersection of purpose, creativity and commerciality to deliver leadership programmes which drive really positive results in the organisations. Anni is my go to expert for all matters leadership and culture and I recommend her to everyone who wants to get leaders working better together to achieve the very best results for their organisation.
Anni has been helping and supporting Wood Mackenzie over the last year as we develop our leadership skills across our entire organization. She has successfully led a series of workshops where we share our leadership journeys as we seek to enroll people to reach their leadership potential. The entire programme is focused on the Future, Engage, Deliver model, with Anni helping us articulate the desired future state of our business and using various tools and techniques to effectively engage our people on the journey so that we can successfully deliver.The feedback has been universally positive, with colleagues feeling motivated and inspired to become the leaders we all know and want them to be.
I was very fortunate to be on Anni’s cohort of WoodMackenzie’s Future-Engage-Deliver Leadership workshops in 2017. Anni lead by example in a clear way as she coached our group of senior leaders through the FED program. She impressed me as a walking demonstration of authentic leadership herself. She has a very warm, welcoming, and genuine approach.At the same time, she was capable of establishing her leadership and setting the boundaries in a very effective manner. Prior to FED, I had been involved in several leadership development programs and worked with several coaches and trainers. Anni’s coaching was pretty unique with a profound effect on each of the cohort members. Her style encouraged even the most introverted of senior leaders in the room to open up and share their experiences generously. She was able to lay the ground for a safe, yet dynamic environment where we all ended up looking up forward to challenging and being challenged by each other.At the end of the five-day program my approach and sentiment around seeking and receiving feedback changed dramatically. I now view the exchange of feedback as a tool for engaging and showing up as a leader whose vulnerability is an asset. This is only one example of the transformation that Anni’s coaching instigated.Outside of the group workshops at FED, I have also engaged with Anni on a one-on-one basis. I have come to know her as a strongly principled coach with genuine passion to bring the best out of the leaders she works with. Anni is one of the people that embody the principle of being the change you want to see in the world. Being coached by her could be the best development opportunity for your leadership and a lifeline for your organization.
Anni’s support has helped us to develop the skills to build even stronger and more collaborative teams that have translated into stronger business performance.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Anni on our HO/SO event. She was an excellent facilitator and I learned so much from her style and approach which worked so well with our people. We got great feedback from the events we had and we have already started the next steps in embedding and growing our learning.
Thanks for an awesome session today…I got so much from you – lots of gratitude!
