“Gina was invited to speak at our Inspiring Women event as our closing speaker. She targeted her talk to the audience perfectly, she was instantly engaging and grabbed the attention of the whole audience straight away. Her talk was entertaining but touching at the same time and I would highly recommend her as a speaker at any event.”

“I was fortunate enough to hear Gina speak about Marketing & the Power of People at a networking event. Gina’s 20 mins presentation was clear, brilliantly thought out, punchy and amusing. Gina’s sparky, friendly character shone through throughout the talk. She illustrated her learning points brilliantly, using different tones of voice, keeping the talk at a pace that kept her audience with her for the duration. I was so impressed, I asked Gina to speak at my subsequent Athena Network launch event, where she had the same impact. I have no doubt she would make an enlightening, engaging, informed and amusing after-dinner speaker. Highly recommended.”

“Having Gina on stage on an opening speech guarantees that the entire audience is energized, engaged and smiling. Gina has an open, likable personality that makes it easy to work with her, but she doesn’t take the success of her presentation for granted. She will do her best to shine, she wants to deliver a perfect presentation and she is very open to any feedback. During our event, Gina’s presentation was in the top of the best valued presentations, as recorded by our guests feedback.”

“It was such a brilliant experience hearing you speak. Talk about inspirational and someone ready to genuinely motivate and inspire other women, with practical tips in life!! Thank you so much, I honestly appreciated your reaching out and talking to me after the event as well… you honestly, helped me overcome some elements of self doubt and fear that had started building up inside me.”

“Gina Balarin has spoken at our organisation many times, and each time she leaves the audience feeling happier and more inspired than before they heard her. I have no hesitation in recommending her for professional speaking opportunities, as she has proven herself, time and again, to be a credible, powerful and persuasive speaker with a thorough grasp of marketing, business and how to motivate teams, leaders and customers alike.”

“Gina’s business training and presentation for my Athena Network meeting was excellent. She inspired our group and educated them about the power that each of them have to make a difference, using the members of their “Secret Army” to support them. If you want to feel uplifted after a presentation, Gina is the lady who always delivers and you always learn something new when Gina presents or speaks.”
