Testimonials for Women Leadership Programmes

“Inge Woudstra defined and hosted a workshop session at our Connecting Women in Technology event – You PLC. Inge’s workshop session entitled Be Gender Smart, focused on diversity in the workplace, how to recognise it and how to manage it to your best advantage.

Inge put in considerable effort to the event and delivered a thoroughly professional, thought provocative and stimulating session. The workshop was repeated twice during the afternoon and both slots overran due to numerous questions and interesting debate generated by the participants. I would thoroughly recommend Inge as a speaker or facilitator at any workshop related to gender and diversity.”

Nina Wilson, Director Client Service, Avaya

“Great session at the recent Connecting Women in Technology event (which I lead for IBM, along with 7 other tech companies). The information and activities provided in Inga’s session were insightful and helpful in guiding you to understand “You” better, for your career development.”

Liz Henderson, Data Director, IBM

“Inge is a very engaging speaker and I found the session full of what I call “ah ha” moments.  What I really enjoyed was how this was kept very positive – focussed on the benefits of recognising and understanding the differences.”

Female participant in financial services, London

“Inge delivered a very insightful and powerful session. The views and topics discussed were backed up with factual research which really resounded with our group. Those who attended walked away with a renewed perspective on how to utilize the differences between men and women in the workplace, as well as a deeper appreciation for the opinions and reactions of those they work with.”

Stacy Smolinski, Lead in Women’s Network at Shell – Aberdeen

“Inge manages to open up a balanced discussion on a topic where people could get quite defensive. Other people’s experiences made me re-think my own management approach. I would like to know more!”

Jo Ann Hughes, Equality & Diversity Manager, NHS UK

“I would like to thank you very much for the benefit of the course you gave us. I benefit from your course a lot. I notice the difference. I speak up more for my ideas, and say more often what I think. I am happy you told us about the gender differences, which I can notice at work. I am proud of myself.”

Senior Executive in Accounting, Sohar Aluminium, Oman

“The emphasis you put on the ‘value’ of gender differences, plus the way you approached the topic were exemplary to me, especially that your voice is coming from the West which has been pounding us here in the East with the notions of gender equality for years, which we instinctively disbelieved in.”

Senior manager, PDO, Oman
