Sevil Sabancı, Member of Board, Sabancı Group
During her college years at Richmond, the American International University in London, my daughter Melisa Tapan was in need of professional guidance, communication training, and mentoring.
Her participation in the activities of the Group as the granddaughter of Sakıp Sabancı, the founder of Sabancı Group, made her want to improve her public speaking and communication skills. We also felt it was important for her to identify her strenghts and carve her own path in life while still being able to work able to work in the business professional world.
I discovered that Mrs. Ilbas worked with young adults precisely on these subjects, and she was widely known as being very successful.
Working with Mrs. Ilbas has tremendously improved my daughter's confidence and her ability to articulate herself. She became much more self-aware, poised, and improved her presentation skills.
Mrs. Ilbas not only inspired Melisa, she made herself available in a continuous basis which provided my daughter with a sounding board whenever she needed one.
