"Fran came to deliver a talk and give out prizes at our speech day in the prep school. She was an inspirational, awe inspiring and enthusiastic speaker. Fran pitched her talk perfectly for the age group 3-11years and had all the children and parents engaged. Her visuals were perfect and despite a few issues we had with the IT she didn't let that stop her delivery. Fran also stayed to the afternoon tea and was surrounded by children wanting to see her medals and parents wanting to express their thanks for delivering such an amazing speech. I would highly recommend her to any prep school and would like to say another huge thank you - it was the perfect addition to our speech day"

– Maria Stephen, Head Of Prep, Abbot's Hill School​
