"We had incredibly positive feedback from the event - most of that related to Vicky’s talk. It was extremely honest, funny and engaging. I have heard people discussing it and quoting her phrases ever since! The way Vicky spoke about multiple identities, and touched on all aspects of our activities, really spoke to people and helped them all to feel part of the event. Thanks to Vicky, we now have a very eager team of volunteers who are keen to do great things and to share the message throughout our workforce. We can’t thank Vicky enough for sharing her story with us in such a powerful way." - Clare Harvey, Senior Consultant & Diversity Specialist, KPMG
"Vicky gave a brilliant, thought-provoking talk. We attracted the maximum capacity for our venue to hear her speak for 45 minutes. Through a frank and moving account of her life, Vicky spoke of the destructive effect which self-denial of her gay identity had on her - and how her life and well-being had been transformed since her coming out. This was brilliantly linked back to the workplace and made everyone think about the importance of all staff being themselves. I would highly recommend Vicky to any organisation for corporate speaking events and will certainly consider inviting her to another event in the future." - Colette Comerford, Inclusion Manager, M&G Investments
