According to Wadlinger's decades old study, social connections are the most important indicator in predicting happiness. At Inspire People we are all about connection: from public speaking where you connect with your audience, to cultural differences where you connect with the "other", to empowerment where you connect to yourself. That's our mission.

Reach your goals through our masterclasses, workshops, and one-to-one coaching sessions.

Aviva & Cari ont été d'un grand professionalisme, leurs exercices et leurs conseils m'ont permis de faire un grand pas dans la prise de parole. Bravo les filles ! et merci !

Absolument géniales ! Elles captivent, elles sont bienveillantes, patientes, de bon conseil. Mon seul regret est le confinement. Déjà que leurs cours à distance était super, je n'imagine pas en vrai !

I had the pleasure to meet Aviva during a professional training session for speaking in public. Aviva was full of energy and adapted her examples and remarks to each of the participants. All the participants in the training had different backgrounds, but Aviva managed to relate to each one of us and made everyone feel included and gave customized answers to their type of positions. Thanks again for this enriching day both on human and professional levels.

Hi Cari, I was just telling my boss how impressed I was by the training on Friday and the feedback I've had has been very positive. He would like to organize a session for the sales management team.
