WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“Walk of Life really helped me think about my long-term career goals and how to position myself effectively in order to build the experience and relationships to achieve those goals. Shortly after my coaching sessions, I received a promotion involving a significant step up in terms of profile and responsibility.”

Paul Spraycar, Sr Project Director, The Nature Conservancy

“Walk of Life opened my mind to the lingo of the impact sector, which has allowed me to identify precisely what I want to do and helped me create the marketing materials I need to sell myself for those roles. These materials are so effective - I've been getting scores of compliments and, more importantly, networking meetings and interviews.”

Vijay Padmanabhan, Esq., Policy Advisor, Google

“I cannot say enough great things about Shannon and the work I did with her… I so appreciate her gift for helping me crystallize who I am, what I do and how I do it, and then getting that translated into my CV, bio and LinkedIn profile. She is focused, sharp, efficient and pragmatic in her approach, and very well connected in the CSR/Sustainability space. You will love the pace and focus on results. Plus it’s fun.”

Liz Hilton, Strategic Advisor and Change Leader for clients, Silicon Valley Bank, CatchLight, Bank of the West | BNP Paribas Group, Pymwymic, MacArthur Foundation
