Claude in Action

“The event went really well! Claude’s workshop got her a lot of fans early on, and then the closing keynote was just the right kind of ending we wanted for the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival. It was really good messaging that worked well for the purposes of our event.”

Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival


Claude was truly a genuine, approachable, and engaging presenter at our conference. She gave a crucial, intelligent, and inspiring talk on why focusing on culture works from a human-to-human perspective and as well from a practical perspective on HOW to concretely develop a happy, productive, and creative work environment for business success. Her caring demeanor radiated through clearly and effortlessly on stage, which in turn made people in the room feel safe to connect with her and with themselves in a deeper way. This effect was palpable…and beautiful. She can definitely command a room with such tenderness, a combination of attributes that is hard to find in a presenter. What an honor it has been to have Claude be part of our event!

Claude, words can’t express how amazing I think you are. People loved your lecture and you exude such love and kindness. We all left wondering how Vayner got so lucky. You are truly the best. The first summit seemed to be a hit. In the 48 hours following the meeting, we already have almost 2/3 of the total of this year pre-registered. It’s certainly an exciting ride and YOU played a huge role. Everybody begged me to ask you come back and speak to the team members (almost entirely ladies) next September 2019. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Just,…thank you.
