“Thank you for a wonderful session, Lucy! You gave us valuable strategies for managing stress and anxiety as we try to be more resilient during these challenging times. The level of engagement was excellent and I only wish we had more time for you. But that’s always the difficulty, of course. Please know that we found your talk very helpful and look forward to working with you again in the future.”

"Lucy was a wonderful addition to our sales and marketing conference, offering the chance for us all to be reflective on the challenges we have faced, particularly in the past year, and how we can build our resilience to face the personal and professional targets ahead. Her techniques were simple, and easy to apply in the day to day and the whole team found her talk and methods to be really engaging and thoughtful”
Claire Brenlund, Sales Director, L&Q
“Lucy was a really friendly face and definitely practiced what she preached - her optimism shone through. I also thought she was really good at explaining the technical terms she provided, always giving us examples and presenting the information in an easy to understand way. Also, the speed at which she went through the presentation was good – it was easy to digest and keep up with the information she provided. I found it really useful to learn more about positive psychology and learned optimism, and some of the technical terms associated with this. I like how Lucy gave us tips, time to practice them and also made us think about the way we might normally think and behave. I’ve definitely learned a lot and will do my best to use this starting from today!”
