Ariane's session at the Red Bull Amaphiko Academy in Langa was one of the highlights of the 10-day programme. Everyone in the room was touched by her own journey and sense of purpose, and inspired to find the courage to face the changes and challenges that confronted them as individuals. She shared practical pearls of wisdom, from both her stellar VC career and her new-found purpose-filled life. One of the most compelling sessions we've ever had at the Academy.

Attendees were able to relate to and connect with Ariane on a personal and professional level and could apply her messaging to their lives. She was enlightening, entertaining and uplifting, and easily able to bond with her audience through her openness and humour. Staff were grateful to have a dynamic speaker share powerful principles. They described their engagement with Ariane as real and authentic, enabling them to make positive changes in their lives.

"Ariane is a breath of fresh air, talking on a subject that is relevant
to us all right now - change! She did an amazing job in demystifying and
inspiring our staff to embrace the concept, not fear it. I wholeheartedly
recommend her to all businesses who value their staff and are committed to
helping them all navigate change, whether personal or professional.
Business is dynamic, and change inevitable, so lets face it
and learn from it."

Ariane was by far the best speaker of our lineup this year at INEX. She engaged the entire audience and managed to connect with each person on a personal level throughout her talk. As organizers we felt like we hit a home run by selecting such an incredibly dynamic but very personal speaker that appealed to the left brains and right brains in the room.
