What people say about Dawn

"I was privileged to work with Dawn Metcalfe for the TiE Dubai Summit in 2018 when she held a HardTalk workshop. The event gave our attendees the tools to have the difficult conversations both on professional and personal levels. She was professional, personable and practised what she preached. Highly recommended that she be part of conversations in a multi-cultural environment where messages can be lost in translation."

Mita Srinivasan

Director of Events, TiE Dubai

"As part of the outreach program through The Emirates Literature Festival, Dawn Metcalfe came into EISM and met with our year 12 students. She delivered an adapted "HardTalk" to our students, offering a practical and rational perspective on the purpose and effects of having difficult conversations in life. Dawn used data drawn from our students to make her session with them meaningful and relevant, and our students left with pragmatic skills on how to tackle conversations with grace."

Kathyrn Dyche-Nichols

Principal, Emirates International School Meadows

"Dawn has honed her business and communications skills over the years, and following her book and its success ‘HardTalk’ has been the ‘go-to’ person for organisations, large and small, to help executives find ways of speaking up.

There are often difficult situations at work, and all of us shy away from tackling. However, with Dawn’s expert help and training, we can find a way to express ourselves, and still be direct, frank and compassionate."
