“Our Year 10 pupils were lucky enough to spend an hour in the company of Michelle Moore. She delivered a motivational talk that not only fired up their aspirations, but also left them feeling inspired about how education could help them achieve their ambitions. The pupils without exception, were able to relate to her story, they were intrigued about her journey and had many questions to pose to her during the Q&A. I would highly recommend Michelle to speak at any school. Our Year 10’s want to know when she is coming back!”
Emma Thurston, Deputy HeadteacherSt Matthew’s Academy

“Michelle’s fresh approach spoke to all of us, everybody there came away with a new way of seeing the world and a new confidence about communicating with one another. I liked how she showed us so many ways to stand in another person’s shoes. It was great to see the lecture hall packed with students, staff and friends of the University fizzing with Michelle Moore’s inspirational energy.”

She absolutely cut through to the essence of what this is about and engaged the group – She was an inspiration with her energy and absolute conviction and the quietly effective way she opened up the subject. She gave me courage to talk about sensitive issues.”
