⚡️What students and graduates have to say...

"I attended 6 workshops which allowed me to recognise the doubts that I had about my skills and instead concentrate on my skills and the attributes that make me unique. The sessions left me feeling empowered and in a mood of self reflection".

Associate Candidate Care Partner at Hays

"Cel is one of the best guides for students and she has empowered me a lot. She looks for things that we are confused about or afraid of and helps us confront them".

"I am so glad to have been introduced to Cel. Her words of encouragement have been vital for me in getting through this pandemic. The perseverance and positivity she holds is what makes me truly admire her".

Khadija Mussa

Final Year Management Student

"My experiences with Cel were nothing less than magnificent. Her electrifying personality lit up our workshops, and I am grateful for the lessons she taught my colleagues and me in the Diversity, Inclusion, and Acceptance Student Collective. One of her excellent traits that I believe is unparalleled and extremely rare is her ability to bring the best out of people. For example, I joined the DIA Student Collective in the fall of 2019, but due to COVID-19, I managed to have brief interactions with the team. In a span of 6 workshops, she managed to open our minds and hearts to tell each other what we like, what we dislike, and what we want in life. Us being close to strangers, I feel that her workshops allowed a fantastic transition from the closed-off world we used to live in, to an open and friendly space that benefited us to work as a team. Cel impressed us so much that we invited her to be a speaker in our first ever DIA Student Collective - Speaker Series because we believed that she needed to be brought to the mass market. Our Speaker Series grossed over 120 attendees and I truly believe we could not have done it without Cel. I highly recommend Cel for Personal Development, Driving Results, and Motivational & Public Speaking. Thank you so much, Cel!

Cel is an excellent communicator and has a unique ability to engage her audience. It was inspiring to witness her effortlessly establish a personal rapport with our students despite being restricted to the online platform. The students visibly blossomed in her presence as she gently yet firmly encouraged them to ‘recognise their inner champions’ and offered them practical advice on ‘realising their potential and manifesting their goals. Cel's optimism is infectious and firmly built on the foundations of pragmatism. She strikes me as a person who creates and sees unlimited opportunities rather than being defined by labels or constrained by circumstances. This positive attitude in an environment where negativity abounds, is refreshing and relevant".
