"While listening to the keynote speaker at this years Connected Women’s of North Carolina’s signature event, I was mesmerized by Arianne de Bonvoisin’s talent. She had the packed house spellbound as we journeyed with her through her story. She spoke about life, about experiences, that for a moment, were no longer her story but resembled bits and pieces of mine. Then, as I looked around the audience, I could see that she was also telling their story. The nine principals of change were delivered like I was sitting in the living room with a good friend, sharing truths, empathy, laughter and sisterhood; inspiring even this seasoned ‘change expert’ to believe that with ‘an understanding of of the way life works’ we can overcome even the most daunting hurdles – can land on our feet stronger and wiser!"

My interview with Ariane was nothing but smooth, professional, and a hell of a lot of fun. Not the usual 20 questions. Highly recommended.
