“I recently completed the Strategic Leadership Effect programme run by Veronica Canning and was thoroughly impressed by the experience. The programme delivered immediate value to me across a number of key areas; from managing one’s career in a practical and strategic manner through the clarification of career goals and objectives and addressing key areas of development which are critical to one’s professional advancement. By bringing a select group of high calibre, talented professionals together in a highly focused group expertly facilitated and lead by Veronica, we had a rare and invaluable opportunity to actively learn from other participants experience and input. Veronica’s ongoing support and contact between the monthly targeted group sessions, ensured we stayed focused and got the maximum return on our investment of time and training budget. Critical outputs of the programme included a strong tool kit of frameworks, methodologies and enhanced skills to enable professionals to effectively navigate the increasingly challenging business environment, the ability to more accurately and quickly assess challenging business situations as they arise and formulate strong strategic and operational responses and most importantly resulted in a strong network of professionals to refer to during and after the programme had concluded. I would highly recommend the programme to any driven professional who wants to take their career to the next level quickly and successfully, and I look forward to working with Veronica again in the near future.”
- Geraldine Finn, Human Resources Manager, ServiceSource International
“When developing my Weigh Less program I engaged with veronica due to the wealth of knowledge she has working with women in business. She is practical in her ideas, honest in her views and gave me many different perspectives that I would not have thought to look at myself, perspectives that have helped me drive my business forward. She has incredible knowledge of her subject and delivers it in a down to earth way that makes it a simple approach rather than complicated strategy. Above all, I found her fun to work which I think always produces better results and would highly recommend Veronica to anyone woman in business who wants to progress or any woman who is starting out in business. I have read her book on more than one occasion and have purchased it for friends and colleagues.”

“Veronica brought me on board to help out with some elements of her communications plan, but within a very short period of time, it became clear that I was learning more from her than she was from me.
