I was incredibly moved by Shannon's personal account, as were many of the women I spoke to at this event. It was a fantastic opening to the day, I believe the keynote really encouraged and allowed participants to talk more openly about their own lives and tell their own story.
Megan Undrell, Senior Consultant and Event Organiser, Hitachi Consulting
Shannon's knowledge of the sector and her clarity of purpose and vision, along with her flexibility and willingness to step up to the challenge of a very tight deadline, was a blessing. The whole process was incredibly valuable. It was an honour to work with her!
