Anna Dafna’s journey is a testament to resilience, determination, and a passion for making a meaningful impact. From her early experiences working in specialist inner-city schools to her innovative approaches in leadership development, diversity, and inclusion training, Anna has emerged as a transformative figure in the fields of neurodiversity, psychology, and mental health.

Her recognition at the 2023 Business Awards UK for “Best Leadership Development & Best Diversity and Inclusion Training” underscores the impact of her innovative mentoring and coaching techniques. She has taken on issues like ADHD with groundbreaking approaches that are reshaping industries and challenging traditional norms.
Anna, who was selected at the 500 Global Brainz Awards in 2021 as one of the top leaders recognised for their dedication to supporting others and impact in the industry, also has an MEd in psychology and a holistic approach to her work. Her modern success is reflected in her impressive clientele, including high-powered executives, KPIs, and changemakers. Her unique ability to help individuals maximise confidence, happiness, and work performance has positioned her as a highly sought-after expert.
