Following the success of my first foreign language workshop, I will be giving another workshop in May 2023. Here are some of the comments from participants:

I have been a professional opera for 30 years but with Julie I learned to use my voice with greater freedom . Rita

The most beautiful thing for me is to discover new ways to forget my worst habits and keep new ones using both body and voice. The work with Julie opened me to new possibilities to express myself.

Julie Parker is one of very few facilitators I would recommend. The challenge was to develop strategies to embrace change, deepen cross-portfolio collaboration and support executive well-being.

Julie’s application of Action Learning techniques was highly effective and elicited strong engagement from my senior team.

The techniques gave us easily applicable strategies that we have successfully embedded within the team to develop cohesion and mutual support.

The techniques also enhance our strategic and creative thinking to ensure inclusive and genuinely empathetic listening and decision-making.
