Official Testimonials

Gina Buckney is regularly booked to engage audiences at events, read their latest feedback below:

“Working with Gina over the last few months has been a pleasure. Not only is she infectiously positive but she really took time to understand our business and our requirements for an engagement talk with Aegon colleagues. The session was well attended and really delivered what we needed it to, a talk on how delivering exceptional experiences in a busy environment is as much about looking after yourself as it is about looking after our customers. Thank you.”

Claire, Aegon

“Gina is an incredible speaker and really lifts the aura of the room with her presence. Gina really broke down the gender bias and opened up interesting conversations within the workplace. It’s important to see and hear role models like Gina to highlight how important diversity is and how her real life examples have made her the successful ambitious women she is. I think having Gina as part of a well-being programme is key for any company that is looking to take care of their employees. Thank you Gina for an eye opening session.”

Steve, Director, Talent Acquisition and Development, Chemetall
