Geraldine is not only a strong People Sourcer, she is a strong voice, heard internationally, behind the fact that Sourcing is critical in today’s Recruiting and that companies must seriously invest in it in order to remain competitive as a recruiting function and, consequently, for companies’ success.
Geraldine was one of the first people to appreciate and help to create awareness of the People Sourcing Certification program, that is now getting interest from all the major corporations; as program founder, I am grateful for that.

I will always be grateful to Geraldine for the time she spent with me, skilfully stretching my points of view to face some of my misplaced fears, see alternative possibilities and, which gave me the courage to have some critical conversations. I honestly believe it saved my career and helped me rebuild relationships that I would have given up on.
Being coached by Geraldine is indeed a gift
