“Ariane’s philosophy and insights about the privilege and responsibility it is to raise other humans in this world is both refreshing and exciting! She is an eloquent and captivating speaker, close to her subject and to her audience. Her talk, interview, and Q&A were real highlights of our festival. Her words regarding change and adaptability were especially timely and enlightening.”
Cristian Movilă, Founder of Unfinished Festival
“Ariane’s session at the Red Bull Amaphiko Academy was one of the highlights of the 10-day programme. Everyone in the room was touched by her own journey and sense of purpose, and inspired to find the courage to face the changes and challenges that confronted them as individuals. She shared practical pearls of wisdom, from both her stellar VC career and her new-found purpose-filled life. One of the most compelling sessions we ever had.”
Ian Calvert , Founder at FURTHER | Ex Global Project Leader, Red Bull Amaphiko
“Educators today are seeking relevant professional development opportunities. The challenge that school administrators face is choosing a speaker that can deliver a message that resonates with the majority of the attendees. Ariane has met and exceeded our expectations. Our school district was tasked with the distribution of laptops to all elementary teachers (600 +) on a Saturday morning. As everyone gathered in the auditorium, renewing friendships and speaking with colleagues, the sense of optimism was neutralized by anxiousness. However, as the audience turned their attention to Ariane, and listened to her message, the reactions varied from smiles, to laughter to tears and concluded with a standing ovation. Ariane’s message of embracing change was followed by the distribution of her book “The First 30-Days”. The days and weeks after this convocation the group remained to be energized, citing sequences from the book, and asking when Ariane could return so they could share the success she inspired.”
