World Trade Centre Cyprus

Office Show London, 2018

“Thanks for the inspiration!”

“Talita was a presenter in the keynote area of the Office Show 2018. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious and her honesty is refreshing. Talita’s message resonated with me because I have learnt from experience that sharing one’s vulnerability can be inspirational to other people. The audience was smaller than anticipated due to the bad weather, but Talita shared her bold story with us and we stayed on after the session to discuss Talita’s insights in more detail.”

Karen Richman, Dell EMC

“Really enjoyed your keynote session on Authentic Power.”

As a highly talented speaker she knows how to engage an audience hanging on her lips. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she is a true role model for people trying to rediscover their authentic self, especially in their working life. I strongly recommend that you connect with her and the many other influencers in her network to get yourself a dose of unmistakable Talita tonic!”

Future Insights Forum 2017

what a mind-blowing presentation” I and others really enjoyed and learned from.”

Terry Hodgkinson, CBE

Institute of Directors Advance: Insight workshop 2017

“It was truly inspiring. It reminded me so much of the importance of recognising fulfilment rather than just focusing on achievement. After all, for me fulfilment comes from respecting and enjoying the journey rather then merely seeking happiness in the destination. I believe this will surely gather momentum until it is embraced by so many of us that it reaches a critical mass.”

Anthony Feilden, Director, Psychologist , Resilient Mindset Ltd.

Park Lane Women in Business event, 2016

“Talita spoke at our Women in Business themed event as part of the Electric Week celebration at BMWi on Park Lane. We felt she was a perfect collaborator for the occasion because her evident passion for inspirational leadership, diversity of thought and her constructive challenging of the status quo, complimented the visionary and forward-looking theme of our evening. Her story of international success in such a fast-moving sector was of much interest and had great resonance for those people present.”

Mark Worthington, former Managing Director, BMW Park Lane Ltd

Accenture Annual International Women’s event, 2016

She has the innate ability to hold an inclusive yet challenging debate, while remaining true to her core values. It was refreshing to hear her candid, insightful and humorous perspective on authenticity and why this is critical in leadership today, as well as important to our individual well-being. We had fantastic feedback from the audience thanks to Talita!”
