“I have never known such a response to a speaker before. So many staff and pupils have spoken to or emailed me already, saying they think you should come back next year – or next week actually! – as you were the most amazing speaker we’ve ever had and your topic and project are so hugely relevant. I felt as though my eyes had been opened.” - Cathy, Bablake School

“Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Thank you so much - by far one of the most engaged audiences we've had and I'm not surprised - as someone has said it's just such a beautifully simple idea it's delightful to see the fires it's lit. Really well done.” - Elaine, Ogilvy

“On behalf of the partners of Taylor Wessing LLP I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Laura for presenting at our offices last week. Her presentation was pitched at just the right level and was considered by us all to be a huge success – hard hitting but thoughtful and insightful at the same time. We've had some great feedback from many of the attendees and that is exactly what we were hoping to achieve.” - Tandeep, Taylor Wessing LLP
