Cecilia was fantastic and a perfect fit for the event. She had such great integrity, energy and passion. She really inspired our audience and has rated really well in the feedback. The NZ Marketing Summit
Cecilia was an awesome guest speaker for our conference. What she had to share about her journey was very well received by our group with many of our delegates describing her as ‘motivational'. Even being under a bit of time pressure, due to our earlier session running over time, Cecilia delivered a fulfilling and rousing talk about her work and made it relative to our organisation which our franchisees really appreciated. Her energy is contagious and it was the perfect pick-me-up for the group after lunch! I would have no hesitation in recommending Cecilia as a guest speaker for any organisation. New Zealand Home Loans
