"Vicki Townsley is a very talented, committed and inspirational practitioner in the arenas of leadership development, culture change and personal development. Vicki is brilliant to work with – she brings huge drive, creativity, and deep knowledge of process and theory to her work. She is also is a gifted communicator – particularly in her use of story, imagery and music to connect with people both intellectually and emotionally. As Learning and Development Manager at Television New Zealand I engaged Vicki to design and deliver a Leadership + Management Development Programme that would enable participants to make significant shifts in their capability as leaders and managers and to achieve significant business and personal goals. Vicki was fantastic – her instructional design methodology, stakeholder engagement, one-on-one coaching and group facilitation was spot on. I would recommend Vicki to anyone looking to get more from themselves, their team and business in general."Caroline Spencer, Learning & Development Specialist (Leadership Development), New Zealand Post
"Vicki is a strong professional who makes deep human connections with people and this enables her to be a strong a positive force for change. This is an essential ingredient in managing personal and institutional change."Ketan Patel, CEO of Greater Pacific Capital and author of “The Master Strategist"
"Our investment firm hired Vicki on several occasions during the last 7 years to participate with our staff on various projects, such as personality assessments, leadership training, presentation skills, and team building. As a result, I have benefited first-hand from Vicki's energetic and proactive style of coaching and training; both in group workshops and in one-on-one sessions. I believe that Vicki had a positive impact on the firm's development. The projects that she helped us with were all successful, and she also helped me to develop as a manager and as an individual. I would say that Vicki's most valuable attribute is her ability to lead a group, and then in short order to switch gears and focus on each person separately. In both circumstances she is direct and strong, but not overbearing or prone to getting her own message across. Rather, she is adept at facilitating consensus-building and encouraging personal choices, and I have seen her do this with a senior management team as well as with junior staff. -Matt Hansen (International Legal Consultant and Budding Entrepreneur) "Matt Hansen (International Legal Consultant and Entrepreneur)
