Testimonials from Teachers

"All students, parents and staff who attended the Awards evening found Michelle engaging, relatable and truly inspirational. She delivered an exceptional motivational speech, which left everyone in the hall feeling they could do anything with hard work and sheer determination. Michelle exceeded our expectations and I would urge anyone who requires a speaker who can show that failures and circumstance can be turned into a positive, to book Michelle; she is down to earth with a sense of humor which alongside her story helped make her visit even more memorable."

– Alex Brook, Administrative Systems Coordinator, Chislehurst School for Girls

"Our Year 10 pupils were lucky enough to spend an hour in the company of Michelle Moore. She delivered a motivational talk that not only fired up their aspirations, but also left them feeling inspired about how education could help them achieve their ambitions. The pupils without exception, were able to relate to her story, they were intrigued about her journey and had many questions to pose during the Q&A. I would highly recommend Michelle to speak at any school. Our Year 10's want to know when she is coming back!"

– Emma Thurston, Deputy Headteacher, St Matthew's Academy​

"It's both my pleasure and honour to acknowledge Michelle Moore presenting her 'Playing To Win' assembly to our Year 10 students during International Women's Week. Michelle's candid style and humour won over the packed assembly hall of 250 students and staff the moment she began speaking. And to no surprise, she received the highest ratings of all our speakers during the week. So much so in fact, that bringing her back next year is a 'no-brainer'. So if you have a chance to bring her into your school, do it before someone else books her"

– Rosemary Okocha, Curriculum Leader of Physical Education, Plumstead Manor School​

"Michelle's fresh approach spoke to all of us, everybody there came away with a new way of seeing the world and a new confidence about communicating with one another. I liked how she showed us so many ways to stand in another person's shoes. It was great to see the lecture room packed fizzing with Michelle Moore's inspirational energy."

– University Governor, The University of Worcester​
