This Girl Speaks

Brenda is an energetic, engaging, and effervescent speaker, passionate about creating interactivity and dialogue at events. She has spoken at a number of national and international events, with audiences ranging from 10 to 100 people.

Brenda hosted a workshop for the Monzo From Scratch Makers’ Festival on the topic of building a brand with social media. The session was incredibly well prepared, mixing interactive practical exercises with thought provoking group discussion. She delivered this session with energy and infectious enthusiasm, breaking down content in an inclusive and accessible way for attendees.

Brenda has spoken for us at a number of our events and has consistently delivered excellent, engaging and tailored content for a youth audience.

She is diligent and prepared, as well as being open and approachable to delegates. Initially attending one of our smaller regional conferences, we quickly realised Brenda’s talent as a speaker and we have since booked her for two years running at our national conference, with more than 150 delegates attending from across two countries.

The SPA would not hesitate to recommend Brenda to speak at any event.
