“To see a room full of young people from different educational establishments focused with no distractions was excellent. That can only happen when the speaker, is engaging, entertaining as well as informative. Joy Marsden is that person and reached staff in attendance as well as learners. I would recommend her as a motivational speaker in any setting (education, business, community)
