Gosia Syta

Personal Impact Expert helping women in male-dominated industries step into bigger roles by developing their leadership presence

Here is what some of Gosia's clients have to say about her talks:

"I had the pleasure of participating in Gosia's virtual workshop "Get Heard in Meetings," which catered to women in the workplace. She offered very insightful and incredibly useful tips on how to improve my experience and make myself heard in a workplace setting, with both coworkers and clients. Just days later, I have already noticed a difference in my quality of work!" (Austin, Customer Relationship Advisor, Costar)

“Gosia's session has really helped me slow down and consider how I present myself to other people. I have never been particularly confident in group situations nor with public speaking of any sort, but her advice, tips and guidance have shown me that I can influence people successfully and also manage difficult situations where before I would have withdrawn.” (Lisa, Process Planner, ExxonMobil)

"Gosia was an absolute pleasure to work with! The content was incredible - thought-provoking and unique, an incredibly hard task these days when there is so much information available on body language and confidence building. The workshop Gosia ran was packed to the rim and the feedback has been excellent so far, looking forward to continuing our relationship." (Michaela, tech conference organiser)
