She believes passionately in a reinvigoration of the traditional training approach and the evolution of courses that are more dynamic, more experiential and interactive, and more impactful through practical applications. Phoenix Leaders builds on Valentina’s cross-cultural and cross-generational experience to encompass all levels throughout an organisation, recognising the shift in leadership models and the changing influences that are disrupting our work environments.
