One of the goals of our events is to provide an outside perspective to motivate and inspire our employees, both personally and professionally. Ariane brought an energy, passion and relatability that was felt not only by those in the room, but also from employees in remote locations around the world. She was a perfect complement to the theme of the event and helped set a foundational and positive tone we will refer back to throughout the year.

Ariane's session at the Red Bull Amaphiko Academy in Langa was one of the highlights of the 10-day programme. Everyone in the room was touched by her own journey and sense of purpose, and inspired to find the courage to face the changes and challenges that confronted them as individuals. She shared practical pearls of wisdom, from both her stellar VC career and her new-found purpose-filled life. One of the most compelling sessions we've ever had at the Academy.

Red Bull Amaphiko

At O, The Oprah Magazine's recent O You! event our magazine hosted 5,400 people, and Ariane de Bonvoisin was one of the three speakers we had lined up, with Oprah Winfrey herself, headlining. I'd heard Ariane speak before but she really brought something so special to our event. I believe her words resonated with every woman in the room because what she had to say came from her inherent authenticity, and her desire to always speak her truth. She inspired me, personally, before I took to the stage, with her mantra, ‘You are pure potential.’ It’s a message every woman, from every walk of life, needs to channel, believe and execute. We will always be thankful for her message of hope.

The Oprah Magazine

Ariane inspired us to think about how we can apply the 9 principles of change to any aspect of our lives. We had a jam-packed room, thought provoking questions and meaningful answers. We can all learn a thing or two about change from Ariane.
