Nisha Anand

“Being a Renegade has given me the tools, tips, and the confidence to say this is who I am and watch me thrive. Knowing that you can reach out to someone who has achieved what you're looking to achieve already and get advice, council, or even just a listening ear, it is invaluable.”

Cathy Beans

Director, Global Brand, Creative and Experiential Change Management and Organizational Readiness, Dell Technologies

“Renegade, just by its nature, is a positive disrupter. There are so many leadership development programs that fall flat. This experience was interactive and got our team communicating in transformational ways. We now know each other on a personal level, which goes a long way moving a business forward.”

SVP of Global Brand, Dell Technologies
