“Walk of Life really helped me think about my long-term career goals and how to position myself effectively in order to build the experience and relationships to achieve those goals. Shortly after my coaching sessions, I received a promotion involving a significant step up in terms of profile and responsibility.”
“Walk of Life opened my mind to the lingo of the impact sector, which has allowed me to identify precisely what I want to do and helped me create the marketing materials I need to sell myself for those roles. These materials are so effective - I've been getting scores of compliments and, more importantly, networking meetings and interviews.”
“I cannot say enough great things about Shannon and the work I did with her… I so appreciate her gift for helping me crystallize who I am, what I do and how I do it, and then getting that translated into my CV, bio and LinkedIn profile. She is focused, sharp, efficient and pragmatic in her approach, and very well connected in the CSR/Sustainability space. You will love the pace and focus on results. Plus it’s fun.”
