In relation to the IWD theme #breakthebias, Dr Juliette can help you understand how bias operates in the workplace, how you are biased, and how you counteract bias in the workforce. She encourages individuals, leaders and organisations to rethink their approach to diversity. Breaking the bias won’t work; we need to shift the focus from costly and ineffective efforts that change individuals to cost-effective smart solutions focused on workplace design. That works!

Juliette is a fabulous speaker! We needed a speaker to help connect the dots between psychology and its impact on diversity in the workplace. Juliette’s customised presentations, high energy, and smart insight absolutely hit the mark. In fact, her message resonated so much with our attendees and myself that we talked about her presentation at and after the events.

We were looking for a behavioural insights expert that not only had the theoretical expertise in the topic but the private sector experience to show our young professionals audience how behavioural insights is used in the private sector. Juliette had not only this precise experience but the ability to present on the topic in an engaging way that enhanced the understanding of the audience in the topic. The positive audience feedback supported my view that Juliette was an excellent presenter on this topic, and I would not hesitate recommending her to speak on the topic to others.
