Check out the feedback from companies that booked Gina to train their employees below!

"My Go To Person for all matters of LGBT inclusion at work! I had the pleasure of working with Gina twice this year when she delivered an authenticity talk to AstraZeneca's LGBT employee resource group and LGBT inclusion training to AstraZeneca's HR team. I am always impressed by the level of energy and enthusiasm that Gina brings into her work. She leads engaging and informative sessions. She is friendly and approachable and fosters a safe environment for thought provoking and non judgemental discussion. I would highly recommend working with Gina on any topic relating to LGBT inclusion and bringing your whole self to work!"
"Thanks for hosting the LGBT training session. I found it to be really interesting and informative. We are keen to regroup as a team so we don’t lose momentum from your session and we can agree some concrete actions to take forward."
“The AstraZeneca group of companies believes people give their best and are at their most creative when they have a great place to work. We see inclusion & feeling valued as core to that experience. It’s important to me as an HR professional that my function role models inclusivity – after all we are the custodians of an employee’s experience with the company from the moment they think about AstraZeneca as a potential employer until the moment they leave us. Recent research reveals that as many as 83% of LGBT people from multiple organisations don’t feel they can be their true self at work. For us this is unacceptable in a business that believes inclusion is vital. Working with Gina to develop our knowledge, awareness and understanding equips our HR team with some new insights which we can use to influence our culture and practices to visibly demonstrate our commitment and aspiration to being more inclusive.”  
“The leadership team of the AstraZeneca LGBT+ employee resource group, recognises that the issues surrounding being LGBT+ in the workplace are complex and not easy to understand without reliable access to contemporary information. We also understand that non-LGBT+ individuals can feel nervous about asking questions for fear of saying the wrong thing. The core purpose of our group is to provide peer support, development opportunities and professional networking for our LGBT+ colleagues. However, we have evolved as a reference point for the business on LGBT+ inclusion, a role we take very seriously. We wanted to achieve a safe space for HR professionals to explore LGBT+ issues and have all questions answered without judgement. We decided to work with Gina after following her work on authenticity. Her collaborative approach to develop and deliver this workshop met our requirements with ease. We achieved a measured improvement in understanding amongst participants with feedback stating a desire to learn more. We are delighted that HR leadership has supported this series of workshops, as it demonstrates a clear commitment to do the right thing, embrace LGBT+ culture and be an inclusive employer of choice.”
"Gina - you are amazing! I think everyone left the session invigorated and I am already seeing posts this morning of how people are energising those who couldn't make it."
"I’m still buzzing from yesterday – what a great day! You were absolutely brilliant. I heard so many people say that your session was the highlight of their day yesterday so thank you for all your work putting it together and running it on the day. It was an absolutely fantastic session, Gina! It was a pleasure to host you and thank you for your inspiration. This is not the end of the conversation on authenticity, just the start."
"Gina is a great trainer and a lovely lady, She kept 20 busy senior leaders fully engaged for 3 hours at the end of a long day on an important topic."
"I had the pleasure of opening an awareness session for colleagues on being your authentic self at work, which Gina kindly delivered for us. The session was very insightful and engaging, and the feedback from delegates was really positive. It definitely gave us an appetite for more understanding on this topic, which is something we’re now planning to take forwards. I’d thoroughly recommend Gina."
"Gina recently hosted a session for us around being your authentic self in the workplace. Inclusion creates a culture where people can come to work & be their true self, feel celebrated & supported & perform better. Our colleagues who attended left feeling inspired & more engaged with the business & Gina kindly offered colleagues a follow up session free! The feedback we had from colleagues has been amazing & we are hoping to do more work with Gina in the future. Any business serious about Diversity & Inclusion would aim to create a culture where people can perform & be their personal best. This was a great session on the journey to achieving that."
"OMG!!!! Your session was just wonderful. I said that I thought you were genuinely amazing and a member of my team said, “that’s because she is amazingly genuine”!! I loved the layout, the time and energy that you put into the simplicity of the terminology and that you spoke to it with integrity and care. We are so thrilled to have had this opportunity and you will be happy to know that after our session, our team conversation stayed on topic. We had people share that within their own families they have gay and transgender family members and that they were so thankful to have been able to gain more insight."
"Inspiring and informative session! Thanks Gina! You have given us a lot to think about to ensure we keep moving the dial around inclusion."
"I wasn’t sure what to expect today but you ran a truly inspirational session Gina. Well done for keeping us to time as well - we are a passionate bunch in the HR department."
