What previous participants said

“What a fantastic workshop Servane! Both in terms of content plus your mantra of ‘how one works together matters’ – amazing to see how much fertile ground that produces for brainstorming together.” ~Amita Gulati – Private Investor and Strategic Adviser.

Thank you Servane, for expanding my mind with signals, with a group of thoughtful open-minded people, all in an hour on a Monday! Loved that you got us to notice our disagreements, and process our instinctive responses. Taking my insights into my future self with me as a I start the rest of my week. Lots to process still, thank you.” ~Esmee Wilcox – NED and Behavioural Change Specialist.

“The workshop was highly engaging and informative, allowing us to reflect on why we sometimes feel “underqualified” or “not good enough” to do certain things.  While each of our stories was personal and unique, Servane led us through a series of exercises to overcome this mental block. By the end, what connected all of us was a united sense of purpose and new-found confidence to take away into our individual lives.” ~ Jamie. Member at The Conduit, London.

“I found the generative listening workshop with Servane was a fantastic exercise in collective thinking. The way she coached, moderated, explained and queried allowed us, participants, to interact with her and with each other in a way that created what were – at least for me personally – many new insights, and not only into this particular topic. The workshop has deepened my understanding and enhanced my capacity to listen.

My freshest thinking: I’m going to re-appreciate all that’s gone right when I have trusted, professionally and personally. Far more than what’s gone wrong :)”. ~ Emilie Goodall. Impact Investment specialist.

“It’s amazing what you can uncover in such a short time!”

“Thank you for the opportunity, Servane. Your session brought a round trip back to myself, breaking barriers one step at the time”

“[I find] SO many situations where learnings from your listening workshop are coming-in handy, particularly at this stage still, awareness what I could have said (or, more accurately, what I could have not said!”

I was recently given the opportunity to take part in a workshop called ‘The ten components of the thinking environment’ with Servane Mouazan. I wasn’t sure what to expect – I didn’t feel like I had any particular difficulties thinking, and questioned whether this was an effective use of my time. I was wrong to doubt. What I experienced in the hour will have a lasting, positive impact – on me, those around me and the relationships I build in the future. This was fascinating, thought provoking, engaging and good fun. Thank you Servane – I am truly grateful for everything you shared with us. ~Davina Beattie – Business Transformation Director, The Hive Consultancy.
