"Sejal is amazing! I have spent over 10 years searching for a trainer to partner with that gets what attendees need to learn and how to effectively deliver training content. One of the highlights of my career has been to work with and mentor Sejal. She is that rare breed of trainer who uses stories and vignettes that are relatable to what managers and non-managers actually go through in the workplace. Ways I can describe Sejal: high energy, intuitive, spontaneous, knowledgeable, inquisitive, sensitive and thoughtful. She injects humor in a professional manner and engages audiences so that they actually want to keep listening. They want to learn. She gets them to think. Sejal uses her employment law background to weave in teachable moments that will last a lifetime. My clients love Sejal and I look forward to partnering with Sejal for years to come."

"Why am I recommending Sejal Thakkar — as a trainer, a facilitator, a speaker, or simply as a national authority on workplace civility and diversity & inclusion? I could simply rely on her deep level of subject matter expertise, which alone justifies her presence at any table. Or, I could cite her level-headed, open, and inviting demeanor which, combined with humor, makes her workshops and facilitations singularly informative and engaging. I could even harp on her reputation, since everyone who is anyone in the field seems to know and respect her. But instead, I will laser-focus on how all of these characteristics have combined with her lived experience — her fundamental humanity — to create a trainer whose knowledge, skill, and passion bring credibility and engagement to the fore every time she speaks. If it’s not obvious, I am a fan. Hire Sejal and you will be too."

"Sejal facilitated a training on Civility in the Workplace and our entire company gave her rave reviews! Sejal took an incredible amount of valuable information and condensed it into two hours. The teams enjoyed the Zoom breakout rooms where they shared about their personal experiences on bias in the workplace and reported back to the whole group. She is very warm and welcoming in her demeanor and her personal and professional stories are very relatable. I highly recommend Sejal and her trainings to any company that is looking to bring awareness about diversity, equity, and inclusion to their workforce!"

"I have been around the block in leadership development and management training as a Corporate captive. I was curious to see Sejal in action, which I was privileged to be able to do last week at the CPS HR training for public entity supervisors. The segment I attended was on sexual harassment in the workplace - just a small part of the 3 day training. I have also attended a recent ATD meeting where Sejal was one of the panelists on managing sexual harassment in the workplace. I remain impressed with her business acumen, her collegial style, and her fresh perspectives, but most of all by the stories she tells to make the content come alive to the participants. She is professional, engaging, actually "captivating" is a better word. She is our go to expert Training Consultant to the Green Lewis Group!"

"I have known Sejal for several months now and have had the opportunity to connect with her both in-person and on LinkedIn. As I think about all that Sejal is as a professional and how she walks her path, it is difficult for me to even know where to begin. Right off, I would say that Sejal is one of the most authentic, resilient, and committed people I know. She is one of the best community connectors that I have ever met. She is an amazing speaker and she is passionate about upholding the rights of others. She is a fantastic speaker, trainer, and she has a wealth of knowledge and gained wisdom. Sejal is highly regarded by her community and would be a wise choice for anyone looking for an expert trainer, consultant or speaker!"

"Sejal’s workshop on ‘Civility’ is superb on a number of levels… It is challenging, thought-provoking, stuffed with useful information on the topic and presented with real energy, charm & gusto. What really stuck with me, though, were her personal stories of working as an Attorney and representing clients on cases that touch this area. That’s where her lived experience memorably illuminates the topic and was the root of my learning from the session. And I’ve spoken to others for whom different elements of this resonated in a similarly powerful way… in short, I would recommend this session across the board (and already have to my own clients) - no matter what area of business you’re in this is an important topic, as we all know, and Sejal has found a way of presenting it in a way that genuinely lands."

"Sejal is an amazing speaker and teacher! Her civility at work training is captivating, moving, and informative. She uses real-life examples, events she has witnessed in her personal and professional life to connect her audience to the material. These stories stay with you and help guide our team to look inward and make a commitment to making our work environment the best it can be!"

"I had the privilege of working with Sejal as a co-facilitator, organizing an event, “Survive to Thrive: Your Past Does Not Determine Your Future.” What impressed me the most from collaborating with Sejal is her ability to deliver on the tasks she said she would (true go-getter mindset), and go above and beyond in helping us secure the much needed resources in order to make such experience possible. At the event, I was impressed by her knowledge of how to recognize unconscious bias, and her ability to ask others questions in helping them recognize the different biases they make throughout the day. I highly recommend Sejal to any organization looking to transform the lives of others!!!"
