Two decades as a social entrepreneur, and overcoming personal adversity, hasn't taught me everything.
I don't have ALL the answers but I have quite a few, and I'll have your back.
I know how to set the scene for conversation and connection.
And the questions to ask to support you... Let's take a walk and chat?
“Vanessa is one of a kind!!! She is super switched on, dedicated and always innovating and has a genuine desire to help! Vanessa's expertise as a mentor is second to none. Vanessa's webinars are always new exciting and different, always pushing the boundaries and looking to think outside the square ! Thanks for being YOU Vanessa!”
“It was wonderful to discuss our challenges with our small business during the pandemic. Vanessa is thoroughly versed in many aspects of business as well as being very personable and intuitive. She was able to highlight strengths with our brand and gave insight on how to navigate onward. Vanessa is a delight, so helpful and I applaud her on her charity work. She had great referrals and is a keen problem solver. I look forward to working with her in the future and continuing to be inspired.”
“Vanessa is an wonderfully perceptive individual! We talked at length about a digital platform I was developing. Bringing her wealth of experience, Vanessa helped me better understand my own product, the questions that need to be asked and the kind of conversations to have (and with whom) to bring it to the next level. She's extraordinarily personable, so if you come to her in a panic, you'll leave feeling better!”
