“Lita and her team are a joy to work with. She brings passion and enthusiasm to every engagement. Work with Lita if you can!
Coachee, Senior Manager
“Something that stood out for me in our interactions was her non-judgemental approach, particularly when I was explaining a personal issue that I needed to solve. Her patience, while encouraging me to discover the answers, seemed boundless. Lita has tremendous life experience, which is clearly reflected in her agility when discerning the cause behind the issue at hand.
“Thank you Lita for a wonderful workshop. The skills and tools you taught us, will be extremely valuable going forward. A wonderful combination of useful learning and lots of fun. Being artistically challenged I would never have believed that I was capable of drawing something that could actually convey a message! Communication is one of the biggest challenges in the workplace and this skill certainly helps to crystallise thoughts and I am sure retention of the knowledge is so much better for it. Many thanks for an excellent workshop.”
Linda Buckley, Henley Business School
‘Lita has become an indispensable part of our design and implementation process at Henley. I particularly enjoy the positive client reactions when she shares what she has been harvesting. Lita listens to what is (and isn’t) being said and cleverly captures the ideas, flow and nuances of the conversation in the room, be it virtual or face to face. Her depiction adds a further dimension to a meeting, event and/or design or programme revamp session. This allows us to remain true to our collective design as the programme unfolds, as it is easier to grasp a comprehensive visual image (that can be amended) and to recall it whenever and wherever necessary. Lita’s vast experience in the corporate world is such a plus, as she really understands the more intangible aspects of the discussions. Output = valuable, meaningful, eye-catching visuals!’
Alex Rodal, YPO
“I have had the pleasure of hosting a few high calibre speakers at YPO.org, where Lita has helped us graphic record the webinars for our global audiences. It is quite engaging for our participants to see the graphics being created in front of their eyes. Lita is gifted at capturing the key messages, ultimately creating not only a most memorable visual but a quick go to guide for future reference. Highly recommend her.”
“Lita was a fantastic facilitator and gave me the confidence to believe that I could draw.”
“Since attending Lita’s course I have had delegates tell me that my flipcharts are brilliant – they take photos to share and don’t need to write them up…so, a more effective and efficient process for everyone. And easier on the eye!”
“Due to Lita’s deep and wide understanding of business, leadership and management, she has the ability to quickly and effectively define a business strategy / opportunity with absolute clarity. Her passion is unrivalled for what she does and the nature of her approach leaves you energised and excited about your work. Every interaction I have personally had with Lita has improved my ability to build strong narratives, present clearly and structure my approach deliberately to the relevant target audience.”
Manager, Institute of Directors
“Using Lita to graphically facilitate our Director Certification information session helped us achieve 2 objectives – to provide information to our participants so that they understand what is required and how it works in a visual and clearly set out manner and, ensuring that the presentation remained interested and kept their attention. Lita’s skill changed the way in which we will approach our sessions going forward!”
Coachees, Middle Management
“Through our sessions, I have grown immensely personally and professionally. I have taken charge of my growth and I appreciate my contribution small or big. I have learned to put myself first which allowed me to be happier and give more of myself without hating my roles – wife, mom, team leader. You are one of the great coaches I know.”
“She asks relevant questions during discussions that helps me realize my personal goal as well as that of our organization. She provides me with the relevant responses but will have the direct discussion that opens my mind to think further on how I can personally improve and guide me through my journey.”
“This was a truly inspirational, fun and valuable workshop. The ability to graphically create in the business world in a meaningful visual way is extremely powerful.”
“She was great in how she handled the groups and took a very foreign concept and made it practical. Great use in change communication initiatives.”
“At first I was sceptical. I did not think there was going to be value from this, boy was I wrong. I learned the value of visual presentation and drawing. The whole process also had a calming effect on me.”
“I would like you to know how much I appreciate the impact you’ve had in my life. I can handle life’s challenges onwards with all the tools you have equipped me with.”

We recently worked with Lita on several change projects that required creative and “out of the box” thinking. The products of her work were very well received by the business and has really assisted in creating an understanding of the change initiatives; or building capability. Lita is very good at interpreting requests and has the ability to translate this into a creative and understandable story – and this is done in record time. – Patricia Bosch
Ricky Robinson, CEO, LRMG
“Grateful thanks Lita. I think your work is fantastic and added a lot of value in the flow today. It saves the delegates a lot of note-taking and sums up key learnings, given and received from both facilitators and participants, as they happen.”
