“The workshop is created in such a way that it combines the theory and practical part at the same time which makes it easy to understand. The mentors are passionate and would really like to see us progress. They were willing to give us extra time and attention whenever needed and I am not the same person as yesterday.”
“Many, many, many thanks Mary – the jury gave me the feedback that my presentation made me the clear winner. That would not have been possible without the very clear and specific feedback that you gave me. It helped me to rework my presentation to exactly what it should be! I cannot thank you enough for that.”
“I have always been wary of ‘coaching type workshops’ which I personally find very male orientated, but the Cartier 2010 Entrepreneurial workshop was amazing. Mary Cronin’s feedback on my Cartier Business Plan Presentation was crucial. I am sure, if it wasn’t for her honest appraisal, the jury members would not have come to me and commented on my ‘excellent presentation skills’ and lay out. Personally, Thousand Seeds have clarified my role as a social entrepreneur, and delivered much needed information as a female entrepreneur. I would highly recommend other entrepreneurs to check out ThousandSeeds.”

“As an entrepreneur and social entrepreneur, I understand that the right type of guidance is critical to help my start-up company push the bar to next level. In October 2010 I was nominated as one of the 15 most promising International enterprises by the Cartier Women’s Initiatives Awards and was invited to Paris for the finals. As part of this ThousandSeeds ran the Entrepreneurial workshop for the finalists. I had no idea what to expect from this workshop? But to my delight, ThousandSeeds surpassed any exceeded my expectations. Mary, Raomal & Laure were always very straight to the point coupled with getting us working on how to build our businesses. The workshop was inspirational, motivational and efficient. In only a few hours I felt I had received years of business experience – summed up. Working with Thousand Seeds is no doubt one of the most remarkable moments in my professional life.”
“This workshop surpassed my expectations and prepared me to see the competition as an opportunity, not an ordeal.”
“I came to the Paris for the Cartier Women’s Initiative not really knowing what to expect, but I can honestly say the trip has been worth it. I have been encouraged and inspired and most importantly equipped with useful entrepreneurial skills which I know will help me to take my business to the next level. The workshop was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”
“The whole ThousandSeeds workshop and perspective was amazing. It gave us a chance to share and learn more about each other. An opportunity to connect, learn and stop and think.”
“The ThousandSeeds workshop was very useful and it was inspiring to get to know the other finalists and their projects.”
