Jayne brings 15 years ED&I expertise in an area that is critical to our business success and growth, the workshop was engaging and it brought to life a topic at the heart of every successful business.

Thornton Tomasetti

The Boost Your Career session was fantastic, with some very valuable and relatable key takeaways. We had a brilliant turnout for the session across our UK and US offices, and really positive feedback was received from all. I would highly recommend Skills4 – their insight and expertise, as well as their first-hand experience of the challenges faced by women in our sector, really brought the session to life and ensured the maximum impact on the attendees. I hope to work with Skills4 again in the future and look forward to putting some of my personal learnings into action.
