“Saskia gave me a communication training ahead of a talk for an audience of 20.000 people. It went very well, but beyond that, she gave me some really useful tools to structure and deliver an impactful talk to diverse and disparate audiences. I have put this into practice many times since then. And she does not shy away from giving you feedback and pointers on your presentation style and message.”
