What audiences say about Aboodi

“You are very knowledgeable about coaching in my opinion and you express your knowledge with clarity and humility. You are great at holding the attention of your audience too. That seems a lot like emotional intelligence, the bedrock on which all good coaches must stand.”
Sir John Whitmore, author of “Coaching for Performance”

“Aboodi delivered a fantastic session for my company alumni event. He had 40 of us completely engaged for 3 hours. A brilliant mix of inspiring thought leadership and fun participation. I can’t recommend him enough.”
Geradline Gallagher

“Aboodi is an accomplished, highly inspiring, thought-provoking speaker who embodies what he preaches. He has presented at a few Coaching at Work conferences, and run a masterclass for us, and the feedback has been excellent. He is a pleasure to work with too.”
Liz Hall
