10/10 - Engaging, entertaining, and most important "learning"
Testimonials From Participants
I attended this workshop not really knowing what to expect. It turned out to be an interactive and interesting experience on how to connect with, and leave an impression on people even within the first few seconds of meeting them. Usually ‘breaking the ice’ is the most difficult and this workshop helped overcome this! Shazaf was an excellent trainer and her insights made the workshop an overall fun experience. I’m looking forward to her future group meets!

What a great workshop and I couldn't really think of a better way to spend my Saturday morning. I got a lot out of your techniques, and especially your positive energy.
- Y.H Dual Member
I liked the interactive activities. I also found it refreshing and enlightening to learn about the barriers to active listening and follow up. Most other talks would tell you what to do without acknowledging that there are barriers to overcome too.

It was fun. I believe training on raising awareness of stereotypes and biases is critical to reducing barriers between people and creating a more harmonious society. This is the only example I've seen in Singapore.

Testimonials From Qualified Professionals
Dr. Ann Marie Lew
Former Head of Counselling and Psychological Services, National University of Singapore. PhD Clinical Psychology (Princeton University, USA) MBA (Oxford University, UK)
In her time at CPS, Shazaf provided clinical guidance to junior colleagues, supervised practicum students, and provided consultations to faculty and staff regarding high risk cases and critical incidents on campus.
In all her managerial duties, Shazaf demonstrated extremely strong leadership skills and very high ethical standards. She could always be relied on to provide astute assessements and sound recommendations for difficult clinical and administrative situations. In spite of a busy portfolio, which included therapy and assessments, Shazaf never failed to spend time with colleagues who sought her out for support.
Other qualities I admire greatly about Shazaf are her strong work ethic, organizational skills and her verve and creative energy- Shazaf could always be relied on to do a job extreamely well. She never stopped at just "good enough"; she always ensured that her work was fully thought out and reflected upon.
Finally, Shazaf is a highly loyal colleague with a generous spirit and heart to all. She also has a keen sense of humor that was greatly appreciated. Her departure from CPS was a real loss for many of us.

Shazaf and I were colleagues in NUS, where we worked together running groups. Shazaf has very good organization and group facilitation skills. She is a responsible practitioner of psychology and can be trusted to behave ethically at all times.
Shazaf has a good understanding of different cultures, having lived in various places at different times in her life. I think she has the creativity and maturity that it takes to help people develop fulfilling relationships.
