Testimonials

Ariane was one of the best and most moving speakers I saw at the conference and by 10am Ariane’s book, was already sold out.

Whether speaking as part of a panel, leading a workshop, or filling in at the last minute as a keynote speaker for 5,000, our attendees have nothing but rave reviews for Ariane. It is clear that not only is she a gifted speaker who is able to connect with audiences of all sizes, but that her message is always on target. Her passion and commitment are evident and I’ve watched attendees eagerly seek her out after sessions, hoping for more words of encouragement. The personal time and attention Ariane gave to each person in line generated more excitement and commitment not just for their goals, but also for the conference that had brought them to her. These are the kinds of connections that create satisfied, repeat customers who become our advocates and over time are very influential in growing our events by word of mouth.

Jennifer DeVan Troutman, Program Director, Conferences for Women
She’s a woman who’s going places because she’s been places. Her passion comes through as she tells her stories and makes you realize that change is your friend. Her points are valid, honest, and real. As one attendee noted, ‘she literally changed my life.

Kimberly Lyons, VP, Connections Experience Designer, Starcom MediaVest
It was the perfect speech for the time in my life. It was not only inspirational; it motivated me. I have been trying to change careers for a little while, but was afraid (for various reasons) to do it. In the workshop, Ariane made me feel okay about my feelings, but also taught me how to move forward. To use my fear, and not expect results right away. I have been thinking now non-stop…which is what I needed to figure out what I want to do! Now I’m excited about change!

Attendee of the Massachusetts Conference for Women
Ariane de Bonvoisin attended our 2010 Nestlé Nutrition National Sales Conference in Orlando Florida and provided valuable tips on how to navigate change successfully. Ariane described 9 principles of change that our sales associates are adopting in their approach to work and healthy living. One of our sales leaders utilized her book, “The First 30 Days of Living Healthier” as the foundation for their quarterly sales meeting.

Kathleen Kelly, Director, Sales Communications, Nestle
When Ariane de Bonvoisin speaks, you listen – everyone listens. She has the commanding presence of a natural leader, delivering words of wisdom with compassion, integrity, humor and authenticity. Audiences love her – a caring friend, a dedicated teacher, an inspiring, transformational thinker…she blows wind into everyone’s sails.

Sharlene Schneier, Owner/Producer of In Person Presents, “Extraordinary Events…Conversations With Inspirational People
Our audience loved Ariane! She is authentic and passionate about helping people navigate change. Her message resonated with our audience as we all face some of the most challenging times of change in decades. We couldn’t have made a better choice for our keynote speaker this year. Ariane was unknown to our audience prior to the luncheon, but she left with everyone feeling they had just made a best friend. Witty, poignant, direct and right on target, her speech was engaging, timely and very appropriate for our Girl Scout Women of Distinction luncheon.

We invited Ariane to the Inter American Development Bank where she drew a full house of our Private Sector Women’s Council members. Her inspirational presentation provided food for thought for all attendees who were appreciative of her eloquent yet down-to-earth style as well as her fundamental, liberating message.

Steven Puig, VP Private Sector
How do you get 450 elementary school teachers, to nod with acknowledgment, wipe a tear, laugh, and reflect, then have them rise to their feet for a thunderous ovation? That is exactly what happened in Union City, NJ when Ariane shared her story with us.  The perfect keynote, to set the right tone for our faculty event.  Thought provoking, inspiring, and practical, were some of the words that our faculty used to describe Ariane.
