"I have had the pleasure of hearing Lorna Collins speaking publicly several times: she is an excellent communicator, who can engage her audience both at the intellectual and emotional level. Truly inspirational speaker."
"Alister Gray and his Mindful Talent delivered an amazing workshop to my team on how to leverage our breath to affect our energy, mood, and stress levels both inside and outside the workplace. It was a real eye-opener to understand both the science behind breath and how we can use our breath to get us through the day, whether we need an energy boost or a calming moment. We have already started putting the techniques to work in the office as a team! I would highly recommend working with them."
"Laura Willis was absolutely brilliant...both personally and in terms of really relevant, current and important content. Far and away the best external contribution we’ve had...an inspired choice so well done for finding her!”
"At our recent Conservation and Technology conference in Nottingham University, Nick Lyth’s dynamic, knowledgeable and challenging approach brought to life the whole session.
Nick is a very skilled speaker. He talks with honesty and passion. No-one was alienated; everyone was engaged. He was able to help us see ourselves the way others see us, and understand how that could be best mobilised to our advantage. If you want to be shaken and stirred and come out revitalised then Nick fits that bill."
"Nicki Williams is a must for organisations wishing to support, empower and improve the performance of their female employees. I highly recommend Nicki."
