What clients and delegates are saying... 

  
"I wish to thank you personally for a great motivational session at the SHE show Milton Keynes. It was in all honesty a session which i found stress-free and educational and made me best of all laugh.   

Your session / presentation was very different what we have had at previous SHE shows, to which we should have more of your fun, your thoughts, your experience and best of all your motivation, enthusiasm and inspiration to help and guide people in the future  

It will be a day Ishall remember for along long time for all the great things i heard and saw but seemed to go so so quickly  It was great to talk over lunch together and as you said I do have silver hair not grey or should I say distinguished hair!
 
 Even talking about your family and my family was as BT said it was good to talk   And as you said to all in the presentation “Thank Goodness I’M Fabulous” (maybe) be you are fantastic to listen to and be inspired by  I hope to meet you and hear one of your sessions in the future."

"Just meeting Eilidh was a communications boost. I was interviewed at a corporate conference where Eilidh was the keynote speaker, lucky for me! Her overall presentation got the entire audience upbeat and excited about enhancing communications and pursuing leadership goals with confidence. Eilidh's exercises helped me break down a complex message I've struggled with for a while. She made it so simple and joyous. She is deceptively masterful to put so many people at ease so quickly and to sharpen communications skills for professionals of varied backgrounds and experience!"

Marjorie Tsang, Experienced Global Investment Executive (Pension Fund & Institutional Capital, Fiduciary & Legal Expertise)

"Working with Eilidh doesn't feel like work! She has a great skill of bringing fun, energy, and passion to the workplace. I had the pleasure to work with Eilidh for a conference with my organization and she was easy to communicate and work with from day one. Her ability to listen and understand our organization was matched by none. In addition to an energetic keynote speech, Eilidh was able to bring tailored sessions to our organisation to take advantage of her time while in the US. It was a pleasure and refreshing experience to work with Eilidh and I hope our paths cross again soon!"

Debbie Brin, Vice President HR LaSalle, Chicago.

Eilidh recently came and spoke to a group of 150 H&S professionals at the IOSH Food & Drink Conference after two exiciting, but long days. 
As soon as she took to the stage the audience were enthralled. 'Captain Positive' as Eilidh is known was fantastic - she encouraged the audience to improve their presentation skills by using props, making their messages authentic, the power of three and communicating using story telling techniques. Thank you Eilidh for a great presentation I look forward to hearing you speak again in the future. "

Eilidh gave us all the pleasure of her company and her expertise in Dublin at our monthly meeting of the PSAI last weekend.  As a keynote speaker, she is a thorough professional. 
She is prepared for every eventuality. Her content and commitment to deliver value is exceptional. 
What I especially liked was the way in which Eilidh encouraged/cajoled/bullied us into making a commitment to action, the primary danger of any speaker being that you leave them happy but unchanged.  

What surprised me ( and it shouldn't have given my experience of her as PSA President) was her total generosity in giving advice and support to anyone who asked or needed. Needless to say, Eilidh has a grace and presence that puts everybody at their ease, gets them involved and just makes it all look so easy. 

Does that seem like a glowing recommendation? It is meant to. I look forward to seeing the lady in action again and wish her continued success in her great work in changing the world, one willing person at a time.

The world of health and safety is a challenging one and as professionals we need many tools in our box to educate and motivate senior managers and the workforce to want to go home at the end of their working day without any injury or ill health. This means tools to motivate others but also tools to motivate ourselves, which is equally important. 

Eilidh leaves a long lasting impression on those she interacts with and her follow up contact continues to provide valuable nuggets. I highly recommend Eilidh for any event whether it be as part of the formal session or after dinner, as whoever we are we can always learn, and importantly keep smiling and be positive.  

Andy Melachrino, Chair of the Dairy UK Occupational Health and Safety Committee

"It was an absolute pleasure to see Eilidh in action at a customer centricity conference in Southampton recently. Eilidh was able to bring out the need for positivity and motivation as a critical ingredient for modern day success leaving the audience not only understanding how powerful her thinking can be but inspired to go away and bring it into their everyday life. The board of champions in pretty well any walk of life is not always the most capable or empowered - it is the most motivated, and that is where Eilidh makes that critical difference. " 

Charles Bennett, Director The Next Ten Years

"Eilidh’s larger than life personality and sunny, outgoing disposition made a huge impact on those in attendance. She presented a day conference for primary headteachers in Cumbria organised by the Cumbria Primary Headteachers’ Association in conjunction with Cumbria Children’s Services. Our day was well- attended and the theme was based around Headteacher Well-Being, an area high on the current agenda"

Alex Wilkinson Executive Officer Cumbria PHA 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Eilidh is a captivating conference speaker who has an uncannily accurate way of classifying different kinds people - and to help others better understand their fellow humans. She interacts with people on a group and one-to-one level with an irresistible folksy charm. This brings out the best in others and generates a good humoured, upbeat learning environment as she imparts her insights and wisdom.”

Michael Dodd

"Eilidh's results are amazing 9.08 out of 10 one of the highest scores we’ve ever had. Her brief was to tell us a little bit about some of the many things that might prove useful to Headteachers. What we got was a reminder to me of a high quality taster menu I once had in South Africa...well presented, good value, most enjoyable...and leaving me wanting much much more!" 

Sharon Flowers conference organiser
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Eilidh made a long overdue return to speak at the headteachers annual leadership conference earlier this year.  The general theme of the conference was Well-being and, as previously, Eilidh fitted in well with the requirements of the day. All evaluation sheets rated Eilidh very highly, not surprising as her sessions delivered meaningful messages in a relaxed and humorous way that was specifically relevant to the delegates. Eilidh’s personality is lively and friendly, she is always well prepared, easy to work with and professional in every way."

Val Cotterill - Head teacher and Chair of CAPH

Eilidh helped me to believe in me again; helped me to see that the whole process could be FUN if you are in the right mode and can engage... I got the job I wanted! I cannot recommend Eilidh highly enough... "
