"Preetie Shehkkar is the consummate professional as an executive coach, mentor, key note speaker and in the delivery of professional development. Having worked with Preetie for over 10 years in both her role as executive coach and professional development she has the unique ability to engage with the audience, ensuring powerful delivery backed by a breath of skills, knowledge and experience. Working with IT teams who had become jaded with cookie cutter professional development, Preetie energised the team, delivered content that was relevant and most importantly was acted on by the teams. It was a clear difference in performance, motivation and engagement following the training and allowed a platform of development of soft skills that made a real difference to the business. As mentor and coach, Preetie understands the challenges and personalities involved and works to make you are a better person, not just in a work context but overall to ensure you are the best you can be. Preetie provides content expertise, emotional intelligence, an easy ability to connect, honesty in her dealings and an ego free environment to build for the now and the future. If you want to develop yourself or your teams, then look no further than Preetie."
"I was sceptical of the benefits of executive coaching based on past experiences until I met Pre. She tailored every session of our coaching to the current situation or need and knew when to press and when to listen. Pre was instrumental in helping me develop the behaviours I needed to move to the next level and excel in a tough environment. I thoroughly recommend engaging Pre on her executive coaching programme."
"Just wanted to thank you again for an interesting day yesterday. I wasn’t looking forward to it as I assumed it would be the usual dry and dusty approach of legal jargon, documentation and dotting the 'i's and crossing the 't's. Instead, it was something different and more aligned with what vendor management can be (and covering areas Boral ICT is seriously challenged with at the moment)."
"It was so rewarding to have made the effort to allow ourselves to commit to a day off our busy schedules to reflect on concepts that are so critical to how we improve the way we operate on an everyday basis."
"This is the first Glass Rock training I have attended and I love the design and style of how the content is presented and the groups are facilitated. I love that there was no PowerPoint. Awesome session!"
