Feedback from virtual events and webinars:

"We can say with confidence that Hope delivered a very positive and passionate message and had the audience captivated, we wanted even more! The Q&A bar was very well utilised by the audience as far as Scotland locally and internationally - we held a healthy session with her. She was inspiring and encouraging and many asked when we will host another event!" - Sam, Bedfordshire Police

"The webinar went great, and Hope was a wonderful and engaging speaker. We received great feedback on her experience overall and her disarming approach. She was both impressive and extremely relatable, and drew many parallels to issues and causes we champion within our organization, from empowerment, grit, allyship, perseverance and dedication." - PineBridge Investments
