"Shona kicked-off our Women's Leadership Summit in December and she was the perfect person to do so. Hosting conferences in the virtual environment is a difficult challenge and Shona made it look effortless. She provided an engaging session that was full of energy, not to mention it was the middle of the night for her as she's based in Australia and we're in the US. Shona provided action items and tips to over 200 of our female attorneys and we received a lot of positive feedback from her session. I highly recommend Shona for your speaking engagement and look forward to working with her on future endeavors."
