"Victoria is a member of the French Chamber of Commerce and we had the chance in 2018 to hear her as main speaker on how to attract, develop and retain millennials. The event was fully booked and the feedback was unanimously excellent on the content (real expertise and experience sharing) and on the way she presented it. It was engaging, the audience was easily motivated, and she showed all her leadership skills. Thanks again Victoria!"
