"Cor Hutton has been my first choice inspirational speaker for the last 2 years on a seminar I run on gender diversity. It is a session that aims to motivate and educate my delegates in equal measure and Cor’s talk is one of the most inspirational and motivational stories I’ve heard and the perfect way to close my event. Cor is passionate, humble and heart-warming but delivers her talk with ambition and humour. The reaction she receives to her story is lovely to see as delegates are left with a smile (sometimes a tear) and a whole lot of admiration. I would absolutely recommend Cor as a speaker at any event. She is a true inspiration of what grit and determination can achieve."
“Celia Hodson is a powerful, inspirational and thought provoking speaker. Celia’s passion is infectious and her dynamism really captures a room and challenges you to think differently. Celia is not only a thought leader, her advice gives real life examples and tips that can be applied every day. I have been fortunate to work with Celia at different events across the last few years and she never fails to bring a fresh perspective, positive energy and motivational attitude to each.”
“In our work as a charitable foundation, one of our most pressing challenges is to help ourselves and others think more systemically about issues.
" Lauren Currie is the most fantastic guide to creating the sort of voice rich culture that is an absolute prerequisite to doing so. She has a warm, original and practical take on how to get going on these areas. We really couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
"In 2019 we welcomed Manal Rostom as our Keynote speaker in a C-Level event in Germany where she inspired with her personal story about change & growth. Manal is an outstanding personality, is very reliable and easy to work with. She is truly an enrichment for every event as a speaker"
“Lauren Currie is a great storyteller… her passion is not only engaging but also completely infectious and inspirational. She loves design and making things better as much as tartan and the colour red… this is not an exaggeration.”
