Testimonial Quote about Anne Jaakke
Anne is practical, commercial, fair, and fun and had significant input into every strategic decision of the business. David Lloyd Europe became a very successful company, and a great deal of the credit for this belongs to Anne. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending her for a senior board role.

Testimonial Quote about Anne Jaakke
Anne’s absolutely a bliss to work with. She is really great, mindboggling and at times confronting. In just 3 sessions we were able to unraffle ‘me’ in terms of my ‘recipe for success, my ‘drivers’, my ‘purpose‘, my ‘strongholds and a defined ‘personal brand’.
I have worked with a coaches before but have never gained more results than working with Anne. I highly recommend her to everyone, and that is not only for who works in HR

Testimonial Quote about Anne Jaakke
Anne's personal coaching and CHRO leadership program is a one-of-a-kind experience. I am fueled with inspiration (energy) to further explore my next step and the impact I can have in my life. All this, with a group of outstanding women in leadership positions that I would not have met otherwise. An innovative agenda with insights (outside-in, inside-out),  inspiration, compassion and magical orchestration.  I am ready - since a long time - to spread my wings and believe in our female power.
