I thoroughly enjoyed the “BOOST” session with Joni, even my colleagues couldn’t stop commending her for such good, helpful and meaningful content. I personally took from the session the importance of self-care, not neglecting ones mental health and ultimately the power of resilience. These are life elements which we often take for granted, but after this, I’m starting to be a bit more kinder to myself.

Through her speaking engagements, mentoring, coaching and expertise in a range of content she always has deep impact on her audiences. She is confident, energetic and more importantly interested and interesting which is precisely why her audiences love her. Joni inspires me!
