All of the students, staff and parents were left completely amazed by her life and stories.

It was a phenomenal evening and we cannot thank you enough for arranging her to visit." - Karen, Bridgwater & Taunton College

"Ann Daniels spoke at our International Women’s Day event last night (Thursday). She was absolutely brilliant! Ann was a very engaging and really interesting speaker. Her achievements are exceptional and she was hugely inspiring. Her ‘can do’ attitude made us feel that anything is possible if we put our minds to it and have self-belief. We had brilliant feedback and there was universal praise for Ann who despite being incredibly accomplished was down to earth and personable. Please do pass on our very sincere thanks to Ann for making our evening a real success. I thank you also for your help in putting this all together for us." - Francesca, McGuire Woods
