What I love about Ophelia is her calm way of approach what for so many is a nearly impossible topic of conversation. So I hope you’ll get real with us for the next few minutes and explore your own understanding of what grief is and the important role it plays in our lives.

This workshop was a safe space for women’ entrepreneurs to name their feelings surrounding grief and loss for their businesses. Ophelia met each individual with unconditional empathy and validated their experiences while providing tools to support business leaders in their daily work, as well as in their personal lives. My greatest takeaway from this event was to take time to pre- plan for significant events such as a loss in an employee’s life by ensuring there is a clear and concise plan for arranging for flowers, food, cards, etc. Ophelia really drives home to plan when we are in a clear headspace so when we are in times of crisis, we can fall back on our created plan. Ophelia's genuine approach to grief and loss makes her presence as a facilitator relatable - which ultimately increases viewers participation. She is quick to form connections with participants and uses witty humor to personalize the discussion. Ophelia is a knowledgeable, confident facilitator with years of experience in both the mental health and the business fields, which makes her the perfect host for events which combine the two. Her presentations are professional and her facilitator skills keep everyone engaged, which is why I would recommend Ophelia Rigault for future presentations.
