Contino Female Influencers in Tech, Feb 2020

Friska’s talk “No change, no progress”, and the overwhelming response that we received from the audience was incredible. Friska has a very natural, calm and confident ability to speak and really connect with the audience. During her presentation she spoke very candidly about her life experiences, reliving her personal transformation to take the audience on a journey and be a real life example of what resilience can do for both your career as well as your character. It was truly one of the most inspirational live talks that I’ve heard.

That particular talk was so successful that she was asked by numerous people to present it again in their organisations. – Valeriya Samokhvalova
