What Gaia Grant's clients say
"Superbly presented, scoring a very high evaluation feedback of 6.8 out of 7. Gaia is a knowledgeable and entertaining trainer who presented an excellent session for us, really well facilitated and introduced. Really enjoyed it and liked the creative presentation through the game."
"I was delighted with the workshop Who Killed Creativity? which has both quality and depth. The combination of your depth of knowledge, presentation skills, and the delightful game made the experience safe, enlightening, and most important, change-enabling. The experience is both easy and fun. We know that experiential learning has the most likely chance of changing behaviour over the long term, and the extended value is in the likelihood of the experience 'sticking'. Business, education, and government need to engage the new learnings you offer through your program."
