"Nadja's workshop on IT Security and Protection against Cyber risks successfully linked emotional intelligence with Cybersecurity, making it a significant business impact."

Gregory Edwards, FEMA CISO

"The webinar on Emotional Intelligence and Resilience was perfectly executed; an amazing and talented presenter, highly recommended for agencies facing resilience challenges."

Linda McDermott, Conference Director PMI Ireland

"Nadja, a thought leader in cyber resilience and emotional firewalls, possesses a remarkable ability to connect with the audience and deliver powerful insights on resilience in today's digital landscape."


“The biggest change for me is that I now totally accept it can happen. And that doesn't sound like much but trust me, there is a fundamental difference in approach between organisations that accept it could happen and those that think they can repel it. Because if you think you can repel it, you do what we did before the attack, which is you have no adequate plans in place as to what you're going to do."
