Tanya has been exemplary in her commitment, dedication, and support. Her leadership by example exhibits every aspect of our LEAD principles that builds a positive and just work culture. It is quite remarkable what Tanya has been able to achieve.

Justin Walsh

Director of Corporate Services

Tanya was fabulous, delivered the exact content we need at the moment and read the room so well. Tan was engaging, informative and made complex concepts understandable. It was great to walk away from the session with something we can use straight away. Tan spoke to all levels of experience in the room and the session will be so helpful to our next steps as a leadership team.



“Tanya was able to quickly respond to our needs. She is intuitive and really able to get to the core issues that needed to be addressed with our team. Her ability to connect across a wide cross section of our workforce was especially appreciated and we got some great feedback from the team who spoke about her warmth and ability to connect quickly and that they felt heard, without soliciting this.”
