I had the pleasure of working with her twice recently and at both events she was engaging, informative and she got people really fired up and excited to take what they’d learned back into their professional and personal lives. It’s a real skill to be able to handle powerful issues like race and diversity in the compassionate and sensitive way that Nova does. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Nova hosted a very engaging session for Change.org on Intersectionality and the Importance of Diversity in the Workplace. It was a solution-based presentation that led to a thought-provoking discussion. Nova was well-prepared and delightful to work with. The team appreciated her willingness to continue the conversation if people had further questions or thoughts. We strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker in this area. CHANGE.ORG
We love working with Nova, her diversity talk gave a fresh new angle for our team to think about. On the feedback her talk was voted ‘most enjoyable of the day’! We look forward to working with her again soon”
Principal Hotel London
During a dedicated workshop on diversity and bias, Nova Reid offered a safe space where our participants could reflect on our pre-programmed realities, biases and prejudices. Her workshop was an interactive session, filled with laughter, aha-moments and even tears. We highly recommend her workshops, just a short interaction with her can evoke change. She has a calm and kind way of presenting that truly connected and inspired not only our participants but management to continue bringing awareness and promote inclusion. We can’t speak highly enough of Nova or her workshops.
