Here's what some of our participants said about their time with Elevate:

“I have learnt so many things and/or just get the awareness of attitudes and actions that I was doing without knowing about it…It is pragmatic, the format of 1h per month is very convenient and gives us time to think about the learnings and try to apply them.”

Delphine Baudouin, Manager, Product Panning - Volvo
"Something tangible that I can take away and apply immediately. Highly recommended for those who are serious about their career."

Jan Sinclair - IBM
"Your session has become the highlight of the month – I really enjoy every minute!"

Emma Lindoff - Volvo
"I must say I am loving the Elevate Webinars. Very practical. Very useful. Very applicable."

Simone Weber - SKF
"This is by far the best leadership training I have taken! The content will follow me for the rest of my career."

Olivia Sesevic - Volvo
