What our
clients say

Grainne Ferrari,
Vistage Chair

The workshop was really polished... There was a real emotion relayed and a great balance of engagement – fun, upbeat, serious and informal. Exercises with different learning modes to generate change in the energy in the room. Throughout the workshop there were thought provoking exercises with time for personal application and reflection. It was inclusive for each individual, including our Member from Germany who was ‘zoomed in’ on the day, armed with the PDF slides for ease of following. A huge amount of applicable takeaways, teaching us to lean into the tough stuff.

Twas a great honour and terrific fun to share the stage with @ThePaulaReid polar explorer and round-the-world sailor. Her keen insights on Adventure Psychology have so many parallels for navigating disruptive technology. “You can’t predict the future but you can prepare for it!


I thoroughly enjoyed Paula’s talk, as she truly made it resonate to our daily working lives.  She was inspirational and made me rethink how I set goals for myself, my determination to succeed through adversity and extreme challenges, and above all else to never give up. She was fantastic

I highly recommend Paula as a great speaker - she is hugely inspirational but also truly grounded - she is a woman doing extraordinary things

Paula Reid inspired the employees at Dunstan Thomas at the inaugural annual conference. Her engaging and at times enthralling tales of her adventures to the South Pole helped to set the stage on how we can be prepared for the unpredictable future and understanding on how to thrive in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous world. The key to success is to address ambiguity and lack of knowledge as quickly as possible. Each of these demands slightly different responses and preparations, together these make for resilient and successful businesses and purposeful lives in which personal growth can be a constant and positive feature. Paula is a determined, driven and inspirational adventurer, we could all aspire to “Go into the unknown” with determination and focus
