What are people saying about Julie Riga?

Julie was interviewed on the ACA Club Life Coffee and was fantastic. She is not only knowledgeable but also very personal and puts things in a way that everyone can apply. Personally, each time I speak with her my perspectives change a bit and I'm more equipped. One thing that must be said: Despite her vast knowledge and experience, she has such a desire to help others and an attitude of humility that is not always found. Highly recommend! - HOST of ACA Club


Julie is a motivating leader who engages all levels of management to address multiple learning areas and issues. Her TED talk inspired everyone. She is an amazing speaker and brings passion and humanity to all she does. She is an asset to the team! Global Head of Operations - Novartis


Julie helped me to create a 3 day F2F workshop for an entire group, which I had just taken over as an interim group lead. The preparation and the actual workshop conduct were one of the most fun opportunities in my job. Julie did a great job as a workshop facilitator and also in following up on resulting action items. This workshop helped my group to reset the focus and we became way more efficient. Head of Statistics - Bayer


Julie’s engagement with my organization included mentorship, training, workshop organization, and facilitation. Her preparation before the events, confidence, passion, and personality enabled for all of the engagements to be a great success. Often, I received overwhelmingly positive feedback from my team members and other participants. VP Data Sciences


Julie's Tedx Talk, was fantastic! Her openness, wisdom, and sense of humor made it a motivating lesson for all. I resonated with many parts of her speech, and was truly inspired from the advice to “focus on what you can control”. In today’s world, I think that couldn’t be any more true. Clinical Intern


Super impressed by Julie's TEDx she did a great job and it was very well done! Chief Learning Officer - Novartis.
