Attracta Lagan has featured as a keynote speaker on several of Liquid Learning’s’ conferences presenting mainly on the topics of ethics, leadership and corporate governance. The feedback from all of her sessions has been outstanding with audiences providing very positive feedback across the board. Personally, I attribute this to her engaging / interactive style and well thought out session material. Dr Lagan has unique ability to demonstrate how complex concepts can be applied, providing immediate value to participants. Based on my experience working with her, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Attracta Lagan as a keynote speaker or facilitator.
Whoever decided to include Attracta in the program after several long days of executive speak showed excellent judgment. From her opening remarks my interest was sparked as the words “Here’s the real deal’ started running through my head. Attracta raised the bar in many ways, shifting many entrenched urban myths and challenging us to think deeply about our values and how they played out in our professional lives on a day to day basis. So if you think exploring your values is about as useful to your organisation as motherhood statements, world peace and other utopias then you need Attracta at your next corporate get together.
