What people are saying

The session I had with you changed my perspective afterwards. You and Opportunity Desk have blessed me. In addition, you have made me believe in myself, apply for opportunities and strengthened me I have the power to change the narrative no matter how backwards I've been.
- Anya Itse, Nigeria
Momentswithbren gave me step by step guidance on how to write CVs, cover letters, SOPs, etc, and I make good money out of it. I am so proud of myself. Thank you, Bren.
- Latifat Iriafe, Nigeria
I wanted to thank you for all you do. I used your CV and LinkedIn review service and I went from struggling to even get a call back to turning down interviews and job offers. I am now settled into my new role and think I wouldn't be here without your help.
- Client from England, UK
I am so glad that you took out time to coach and re-educate me, making me realize my strengths, weaknesses and opportunities yet to be explored. I really appreciate.
