"On International Women’s Day, my team and I wanted a local female speaker for our networking event. We wanted someone who was a natural networker in terms of her ability to engage with people. A decision was taken to ask Parveen to speak to our members. I have had the pleasure of tasting Parveen’s amazing food when I hired her to cater for several of our high-end clients, including a Soirée at a Maserati showroom when launching our new magazine. Parveen is passionate about her profession and that is evident when she speaks. However, it’s her ability to connect with her audiences that we were impressed with - she had us all laughing at her humorous anecdotes one minute, then in tears the next, when talking about late mother who is the inspiration behind her new cookbook. Parveen sense of humour and sense of fun makes her talks engaging and a joy to watch. I would recommend her services without hesitation."

"Parveen came to speak to our Business Management students about her business in February 2018. She is an inspirational speaker, really engaging with a great delivery and able to grip an audience right from the beginning. She brought along a range of relevant visual aids that helped students picture what her business was about. She has a great style and the students stayed behind after her talk to find out more about what she does. I would have no hesitation in recommending Parveen as a speaker for a wide variety of events. Her passion and commitment are evident and the time she spent with us went very quickly because of her top quality presentational skills. After her presentation she took a wide range of questions and was able to handle them expertly."

"Ragged Edge Productions has recently completed the second national tour of The Chef Show. This unique production was a comedy play that incorporated a guest chef local to each venue we played in. Our guest chefs were on stage throughout the performance delivering an extended cookery demonstration and at several points in the production they were the subject of live, semi-improvised conversations with our professional actors about the culture and working practice of Asian cuisine.Parveen Ashraf (Parveen the Spice Queen) was an outstanding guest chef. She was very comfortable in a public performance setting - natural, well-informed and prepared with an engaging and entertaining personality. Parveen was so enthusiastic about the project she appeared in three shows. Our production team thoroughly enjoyed working with Parveen - she offered many creative ideas, collaborated well with the actors and had a very savvy approach to dealing with the audience and public in promoting the production. I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future."
