Testimonials for Rechelle Hawkes OAM
Rechelle was brilliant and a lot of what Rechelle shared with regards to teamwork, resilience, collaboration resonated with the messages we were looking to provide our management team. Rechelle spoke from a position of knowledge and with passion and humility. Afterwards Rechelle was very giving of her time and all of our managers really appreciated how approachable and real she is/was, handing out her three gold medals to be passed around taking the time to pose with many of our managers for photos and spending time at the majority of tables for discussions. No question was too hard and nothing flustered her even when we had some technical difficulties with playing a video. Our managers were still talking about the experience the day after. I would highly recommend Rechelle for future engagements.
