Joy Marsden: I have just returned to my office after the interview event and I can only say how wonderful our students were. I think your presentation yesterday hit just the right note and prepared them in advance, not only to face the interview but to have the confidence to approach businesses just to ‘chat’. Thank you so much for being involved in this event and I look forward to seeing you in the future– Karen Betty, Skills for Life Co-ordinator, Northampton Academy
Truly incredible from beginning to end! His presentation was pitched perfectly for our students who sat in stunned silence listening intently to his amazing story. We really couldn’t have asked for a more passionate or inspirational speaker!– Lisa Green, National Enterprise Academy
The presentation was truly inspiring; our students really enjoyed listening to John's experiences in the Royal Marines and his role working for TV companies in the jungle and they realised they could be just like him. By working hard, broadening their horizons, learning new skills and believing in themselves, they too could achieve anything they put their hearts into. An inspiring day that left an enduring impression - fantastic.– Adrian Barber, Project Manager, Bigger Picture Arts
Just a quick note to say how much we all enjoyed Alex’s talk. He was an absolute trooper getting through 2 hours of talking with his voice slowly getting more hoarse! The students were fascinated by his story and the advice he gave them was priceless. Nothing I could have told them about the world of work could have had so much impact. The students were rapt and he responded very well to their questions. The talk was very memorable, funny and informative. We will definitely be looking to book him again next year.– Heather Wilson, Teacher of English/ Head of PHSCE, Portland Place School
Claire’s speech showed that she fully understood the ethos of the school; it was informative, encouraging and motivational. Pupils and parents have commented on how much they enjoyed listening to her and how much they appreciated the care she took to make our prize winners feel special. We will certainly use her ‘top tips’ to reinforce the valuable messages she passed on. Our only problem now is how to follow this next year!– Elizabeth Thomas, Head Mistress, Stonar School
Dynamic, forthright, bold, but utterly charming, Claire showed insight and understanding, offering pertinent advice to individuals and groups alike. A consummate professional and a true inspiration to all young women.– Ian Edwards, Head of Business, Tudorhall School
From my experience of working with Emma-Jane I would feel comfortable in recommending her self-esteem & confidence workshops and hope we can collaborate on some work in the future.– Sarah Green - Owner of Cerato Services
