Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

Feedback from In-Person Events:

"Susannah was fantastic. She spoke extremely well. Through powerful anecdotes and real-life experiences, she not only conveyed the importance of resilience, discipline and hard work, but also emphasised the significance of embracing one's unique voice and individuality." - Mr Kenneally, Assistant Headteacher, Trinity School

"Susannah was amazing - hugely relevant and very personable! Great energy - the team thoroughly enjoyed hearing about her journey, but also freely answering our questions. Rest assured - we'll be in touch for future events..." - Chris, CEO, WeShape

"Susannah is a brilliant speaker, she spoke from the heart and what she said resonated with a lot of things that we have to deal with ourselves in our work. She called out kindness and empathy, as well as active listening, being present and talking openly & honestly which align to our values. I think for a virtual speaker we had an expectation and it was definitely more engaging and inspiring than we were expecting. Really pleased we chose Susannah. From a logistical standpoint, it was a great experience!" - Julie, Highways England 

"All I can say is Susannah was excellent! She gave a full and frank account of her journey into intentional hockey, including the low points which showed our girls that it’s not all plain sailing even at that level. She spoke very eloquently, without any visual aids, but never once hesitated or lost her train of thought. The audience were fully engaged with her and were totally fascinated to be hearing a genuine ‘behind the scenes’ account of what it’s like to work for and ultimately win an Olympic gold medal. She was brilliant and I would highly recommend her." - Alex, Bromley High School

"Susannah was incredible! The feedback on her was incredible, she was so warm and welcoming, and it felt like she fit into the carwow family! She stayed very flexible with our requests and we would 100% use her again in the future." - Zaina, Culture & Inclusion Manager, Carwow
