Diversity & Inclusion
Griselda has an outstanding reputation as a trusted provider of high-quality D&I learning solutions and consulting services through her businesses.
Her approach is an inclusive, open and collaborative one – working in partnership with business leaders, managers, and their teams to facilitate the behavioural, cultural and systemic changes needed to create inclusive corporate cultures and workplaces. Griselda advises companies on inclusive culture – why it matters, how to implement it, and how to achieve it.
Her diversity and inclusion programmes have improved outcomes for women leaders, employees from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups, giving senior leaders the confidence and tools to become inclusive leaders and allies of marginalised groups.

Gain focus and get more done with less stress
Griselda Togobo is an inspiring individual who does amazing work on diversity & inclusion and leadership development. Her approach of using data and psychology gets to the heart of the challenges that hold organisations back from creating cultures that allow human potential to thrive and deliver high performance. She did an amazing job speaking at an event for Said Business School, University of Oxford and I can highly recommend her as a speaker and consultant.

Partner - Global Head of Nuclear
Griselda is talented at clarifying complexities and really honing in on the real issues. She left me with a renewed sense of what I am doing was really worthwhile and that with a relatively small realignment and focus things are really not as complicated as I thought! Would not hesitate to work with Griselda again.
Inclusion Manager (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion) at Diamond Light Source
Griselda is an outstanding consultant and I feel she is also one of a kind. A rare mixture of a strategic business mind, amazing down-to-earth personality and a passion to help her clients' business. The day spent with Griselda working on my business strategy has been one of the best as a business owner. Her advice was spot-on, creative, challenging and workable. My business is already more productive and focused as a result. Working on your own, it can be difficult to see where your business is heading and how to make the most of the opportunities. With Griselda, you know you are not alone but in the company of a talented, highly skilled and passionate advisor

Making it easier to do business with Latin America.
Griselda has been a great ‘business friend' over the last few months and I have found her insights and wealth of knowledge invaluable. Her blogs and newsletters are full of practical advice that brings results (as long as you put them into practice!) plus she is very considerate and approachable. If you're looking for business support I would highly recommend her 1-2-1 coaching or online group coaching to any business owner, new or established.
