Ciara Lancaster was a great addition to our global conference! She was very adaptable to our unusual circumstances and was able to help problem-solve with us to make it a great event. The content was highly relevant to the audience and very well received; we had a lot of people telling us they were interested in reading Reimagine Change after seeing her dynamic presentations. Ciara was highly professional before, during and after the event and brought a lot of positive energy and “can do” spirit to the whole experience. Ciara should be on everyone’s shortlist for keynote speakers! IBM/Cubewise

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ciara for our event. Her topic on resilience and overcoming change fatigue was very topical at the time of our conference (when most of Australia was in lockdown) but would be equally relevant to any time or place, as her keynote provided a sense of optimism and togetherness, and contributed to a positive message on which to end the conference week. Ciara was professional, organized, and an absolute pleasure to engage with. She was also very keen to understand our sector, to ensure her session was tailored to our audience.

Australian International Education Conference

Ciara went above and beyond to prepare for the event and tailor her presentation to our audience. She delivered a thought-provoking presentation.

Australian Accredited Certifier Conference

Ciara provided exceptional value for our community at Mental Health & Change During Challenging Times, we look forward to having her back!

Change Management Institute

It was great having Ciara join us at our recent company update. Her content was expansive and in particular, her pointers around celebrating experimentation, encouraging our people to take risks and fail, and to challenge each other to ensure we don’t repeat what might have worked in the past was particularly powerful and relevant for our business.
