  • Mandy gave a marvellous, entertaining and inspirational presentation to a group of Professional Services Staff at the University of Hull yesterday - we wish she had come 20 years ago! Outstanding!

  • Mandy embodies the true meaning of a motivational speaker. She is genuine in her desire to inspire others through her own experience and comes across as a warm down to earth person with a great sense of humour and plenty of get-up-and-go.
    Rachel Maunder, Athena Network
  • Mandy spoke recently at an all Wales HFMA event, taking the last slot at a full days conference. Not an ideal time to talk. The motivational presentation was excellent, absorbing, amusing and refreshing. It was measured to suit delegates and Mandy had done her homework on the audience.
    Chris Tidwell, Head of CIPFA Wales
  • Mandy was absolute brilliant, I would highly recommend Mandy for any event We hung on ever word and still wanted more after two & half hours. I personally came out on a massive high.
    Sarah Pasco, Sales & Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey
  • Mandy is an exceptional speaker with a fascinating "back story" from her days as an RAF fighter pilot. With her warm personality, she has the ability to captivate, inspire and motivate an audience and I cannot recommend her too highly.
    Mike Warner, Principal at Warner & Company
  • I first heard Mandy at a networking event and was fascinated by the effortless way she put her story across. As a motivational speaker she has to be right up there; there are not many people, let alone women, who can talk so eloquently about a career as a fast jet pilot without intimidating the hell out of everyone. This is why I sought her out to take part in a debate on the lack of women in technology and she didn't disappoint. She is a true inspiration to men and women alike on how to make it in an alien environment, against the odds and with little encouragement. If you need motivation, enthusiasm and inspiration, get in touch with Mandy. I guarantee you won't be disappointed either.

  • Mandy is a fantastic public speaker. She is both inspirational and extremely well prepared. Her ability to relate her own experience working under extreme pressure and in highly performing teams to everyday situations is most impressive. She tops it all with a wonderful sense of humour and great modesty. Listening to her talking about the many challenges that she has successfully overcome should be compulsory for all girls!
