“We worked with Vivian to gain more information and familiarise ourselves with the important, but sensitive, DEI topic within our Commonland organisation. She provided a few workshops and conducted a survey. The results of the survey gave a good indication of where we stand related to DEI. We are also using Vivian’s Amplifie DEI Academy with lots of short videos about DEI topics. Vivian is open to discuss what is the best way to introduce DEI topics to the team and also after the workshops she still is available for questions.”
– Anouk Breukers, People Director, Commonland

“Vivian was a great speaker for us here at Swift for our Black History Month’s session on DEI.
I highly recommend her if you are looking for a dynamite, energetic, and attentive speaker to bring insight on DEI topics to not only the management team but also to staff. Her presentation was full of invaluable data and goals set forth that was understandable and attainable. She was readily available when we were in communication with her for the preparation of the event and was also engaging afterwards. She went above and beyond our expectations and we received a lot of great reviews afterwards.”
– Amy Hunter, People Development, SWIFT

“Vivian gave a thought provoking presentation, Amplify Diversity in the Workplace, in our quarterly DEI webinar series for all employees. Throughout the presentation, Vivian used engaging tools to interact with the audience and maintain engagement. She even worked with me to increase awareness of our ERGs and what they do at Lighthouse by including this information in the presentation. I also appreciate how easy and fun she was to work with.”
– Tim Hammon, Associate Training Director, Lighthouse Document Technologies

“At C.H. Robinson we had the pleasure of connecting with Vivian to join one of our external speaker events for our European Women’s Network. She presented “Amplifying Allyship” to our network, helping to illustrate the tools needed to take action in support of DEI initiatives. The event was interactive keeping all participants engaged as well as creating a safe space for people to exercise their learning process on these topics. Vivian sets a great example and we need more people like her in the world to help generate change and create an environment where all people feel comfortable and can thrive. Would recommend Vivian to anyone looking for support to have an impact on their DEI initiatives or a thought evoking conversation. Vivian is easy to talk to and has a lot of experience! Excited to align again in the future and implement her teachings into our daily lives.”
– Stephanie Leduc, Manager Account Management, C.H. Robinson

“Vivian delivered tailored workshops for Indeed’s Inclusion Resource Group (IRG) leaders globally across Europe, Asia and North America. The focus was to reflect, pause and re-energize IRG leaders who often taken on extra burdens as they champion diversity, inclusion and belonging in the workplace and in our product offerings. Vivian helped us all to take a step back and focus on our own mental health and wellbeing as we drive transformational change.”
– Gill Quinn, DEIB Program Manager, Indeed
