"Hilary Devey went down an absolute storm at this year’s Business Show! She was the final speaker on the last day of the show and hundreds of people remained to watch her. She was interviewed on stage and delivered a thought provoking seminar full of hilarious anecdotes about her life and her business. With the crowd in the palm of her hand, she eloquently relayed the successes and failures from her life in a way that both captivated and inspired the audience. I approached Hilary’s team knowing that she was a popular figure with a very large fan base, but I never imagined it to be so well received. Even when a herd of people were trying to get Hilary’s autograph and picture at the end of the interview, she handled it fantastically and had a great deal of time for her fans, offering kind words of support and the opportunity to contact her after the show with their queries. It also must be said that Hilary and her team were an absolute delight to work with from start to finish and we’d be delighted to invite her to speak at any of our events in future." - Hassan, The Business Show

"Hilary Devey recently spoke for us at a conference for 120 owner/managers of small and medium sized B2B supplies companies. The audience were enthralled by her presentation in which she highlighted her personal journey from childhood, through the trials and tribulations of starting and building a business, to her position today as a highly successful entrepreneur and TV personality. The audience felt Hilary was one of their own, and were inspired to believe that they too had the opportunity to achieve what she has. It was a tribute to her empathy and natural, witty approach." - David, The Sporting Dining Club
