“Evelyne has a great approach in communicating and engaging with the attendees. She delivered 2 sessions to Bayt.com employees in Abu Dhabi and Dubai’s offices of which each was for an hour of a topic taken of her Springboard® program and she for sure had left us hungry for more knowledge. Her passion and belief in the positive impact this program would leave; is really very impressive. Evelyne is for sure a trainer any would enjoy dealing with and benefit from her experience”

“It empowers individuals to change themselves. It motivates women to do something about the problems they face by changing themselves and how they relate.  It made me believe that the power is within ME and not in others.”
Suzan Zawari, Lecturer, Saudi Arabia

“Like any working mother, it can be a struggle to find enough time and there are also still traditional views of women, which can make it difficult to get good jobs or promotions. What made Springboard® different was that it was about learning to balance responsibilities as a wife and mother with your professional responsibilities. I also loved that the course was positive about being a woman – so many women in Oman think that to succeed, you have to be like a man, or become ruthless and forget your family life.”
Nada Al-AjmI, Oman

“A terrific programme for women at all stages of life.”

“After two years, many of the woman remain highly motivated, are still setting new goals, seeking new responsibilities and are still achieving – there are clear benefits to the organisation.”
