AS FEATURED IN
Nahla presented the keynote at our Group 'Away Day’. The theme of the day was ‘connections’ and the aim was to set a kind and progressive Group culture. Nahla was brilliant from start to finish. Before the event Nahla asked how I wanted the Group to feel, which really made me think what I wanted to achieve from the talk. I said 'connected and able to rely on each other’, and I have to say that Nahla’s presentation did just that, highlighting the importance of connection, however, it did so much more, convincing us that kindness works for business and inspiring us to be more resilient, kinder human beings. The overall experience was an absolute joy and I am certain the benefits will continue, and multiply, long after.
