What they say

We have visited over 200 different schools giving talks to many young people.

The comments below are from both teachers and students and reflect the genuine opinions of many others who have benefited greatly from both the subject matter and delivery technique Alex and Amy provide in their talks.

Bedford Girls’ School

“Alex talked to our Year 13 students.

Alex is a great speaker, presenting in an honest and entertaining manner. The talk ‘Leaving School & Moving On’ provides the students with valuable information as they prepare to embark on the wider world of travel, university and work. The research and information is appropriate, relevant and up-to-date.

I would recommend this talk to your school.”

Pippa Milton Head of PSHE

Marlborough College

“Alex has been delivering presentations to Years 10 and 11 at Marlborough College for many years.

Her style is approachable, upfront, honest and compassionate – she draws a clear distinction of style and content between the two yeargroups without losing her essential warmth and sense of connection.

Alex strikes exactly the right balance between familiarity and expert knowledge: her background in health education, and her experience in schools and as a parent, puts her firmly “on the wavelength” on the young people she addresses. Yet she does not go for cheap points – instead she speaks with clear authority, and the warnings she offers about taking risks with sexual and emotional health are made clearly and uncompromisingly. It is very clear that she cares deeply about young people – and this conveys itself quickly to her audience. This, plus her detailed knowledge of legal and health issues, gives her presentation a credibility and impact with the young that lasts well beyond her time at the College.”

Kate Cayley – Head of Boarding

Bristol Grammar School

Amy’s talk was relatable to our age and the topics were talked about in a suitable way. I really liked her presentation as it was very informative and she wasn’t just saying we can’t/shouldn’t do things. Her enthusiasm was amazing and it seemed like she really knew the questions everyone probably had but didn’t say.

“Thank you so much for coming in to speak to our Year 6, 7 and 8 boys; the feedback from the sessions has been nothing but positive. Honestly, our staff are raving about the talks and the boys all said how useful and interesting they were. We would love to have you come in to speak to the boys again and I think it worked really well speaking in the Summer Term. Thanks so much again…”

We became more confident about sex and growing up. Also, Amy was very honest and didn’t make us feel embarrassed.
