“Emile's passion and insights for leadership is unmatched. The workshop was well presented and added so much value. We learned that truly great leaders are examples for others to follow and that we should choose our thoughts, words and actions wisely. Emile connected with us on a deeper level and created a safe space for our young leaders to be vulnerable. It added value to our lives and our leaders are now inspired to have a positive influence in the world."

“I liked the calm, relaxed and professional manner in which the workshop was presented. I enjoyed the fact that everyone was able to engage in conversation. The workshop enabled all educators to realise their potential, to embrace the values and develop them on a daily basis. It served as a reminder that we have a responsibility to embrace the values that our school stands for and strive towards significance in the workplace”

“The facilitation style of Emile Neethling was learner-centred and organic, which meant that learners were arriving at the key principles and practices of leadership through their group discussions and plenary sessions. The results exceeded our expectations by far and proved that the workshop had been highly successful”
