The Nike EMEA Women’s Network has been collaborating with Hustle & Heart Consultancy for over 2 years for multiple types of sessions on personal branding, public speaking and unstuck sessions. We love Shenin’s way of working: her professionalism and talent for public speaking, her openness during the sessions and her ability to bring the audience on a smooth journey to discover the areas they want to improve and get ready for the future.
As a trainer, Shenin always strives for women to discover their strengths and be confident to talk about them. She is not afraid to discuss tough topics and blockers during the process, and she does this with grace. She makes people feel at ease by sharing her own story and experiences and this sets the tone for the group.
Each time Shenin took the stage for internal sessions of the Nike women’s network; the group left with so much energy and enthusiasm. Thank you Shenin!

We organized a lunch session with Shenin on Personal Branding and loved it! Despite having only 1.5 hours, Shenin gave us a concise overview of Personal Branding, created a safe space to discuss the topic with each other and gave us practical pointers that we could take back to our day to work. What worked well for our group was that she brought a lot of energy, examples from her own careerpath and a structured method to ‘tackle’ a topic such as Personal Branding. If you’re looking for someone who can do all that and is a pleasant person to work with, we would highly recommend her!
