Resilience is consciously learning how to experience life as if it’s happening FOR you and not to you ...
be the opportunist of your situation rather than a victim of your circumstances...

WHAT THEY SAY…

 

 
I realised a new way of walking after listening to Vashti speak. And I say “realised” rather than “found” for a reason. After her utterly captivating Keynote - I mean really, I was shook with knowledge - I realised my potential has always been here. I just didn’t know what tools I needed to grasp it.

The most gifted facilitator I have experienced in my professional career...
— Carol Jadraque Sustainability Advisor | Strategy & Innovation Expert
As lead facilitator Vashti was just brilliant from start to finish! She does nothing half-heartedly and brought her complete self to the course. Her decades of experience, her own personal triumphs and tragedies, and her amazingly unique perspective to take life and squeeze every drop out of it with pure love, intention and purpose brought magic to the course. It was such a wonderful journey to be immersed in this magic over the entire course that it left a very deep and positive impact on me forever.

Vashti has a unique style that is somewhat hard to describe: raw, professional, captivating, intelligent that has you laughing, reflecting and thinking.
— Kylie Fahey (CEO – Institute of Quarrying Australia).  
I first met Vashti Whitfield as a Keynote Speaker where she presented an awe inspiring presentation on the importance of Legacy Driven Leadership. Vashti then hosted and facilitated the NSW WIQ Diversity and Leadership Summit. Her capacity to create a hugely inclusive, engaging and motivating environment was outstanding. Her humour and knowledge combined, was as entertaining as it was impactful, successfully dissolving and uniting a vastly diverse audience. Along with adding enormous dynamism and value to our day long discussion on Diversity and Inclusion, Vashti also expertly facilitated an Inclusive Leadership workshop on Unconscious Bias, where she artfully wove the speaker’s content and theme of the day, into a hugely insightful and action-based leadership workshop. A true master of ceremonies! 
— Peter Lawlor | NSW Chairperson of Quarrying Australia.
I first experienced Vashti as a Keynote Speaker - where along with her fearless and candid delve into making her documentary Be Here Now, she also explored the whole relationship between resilience and mindset. After hearing her speak and then watching her documentary I felt compelled to seek her out as a Coach. I can honestly say she has become one of the most pivotal human beings in my life. The amount I have grown and transformed in one year is a testament to her nature, her expertise, and her purpose. 
I would recommend Vashti as a Speaker, Coach or Facilitator to any person, team, business or organisation who is looking to gain clarity, perspective and motivation to brave the necessary steps of change…

Vashti was a wonderful MC for our Conversations about Death and Dying event. Vashti was highly articulate and knowledgeable on all areas of topic and contributed greatly to the overall content of the conversations. She intuitively read the audience and knew how and when to change pace and energy, and when to expand topics and discussions further. We were very grateful to be guided by Vashti’s experience during the day. We received fabulous feedback from the audience and speakers about her energy and her contribution to our annual event. Her passion for facilitating conversations about death and dying is invaluable as we increase discussion around these topics in our community.
