“Really interesting, fun evening with Ladies Who Impress”

Clare Balding, OBE

“I’m so glad I was, at last, able to attend one of your evenings! It was great, very inspiring and affirming to be with other empowered but lovely women.

I feel what you’re pursuing and building is something so worthwhile and exciting! Long may it continue. You are an impressive lady!” 

Kim MacConnell

“Massive congratulations on last night! Your first event was a triumph. I really thought it was fabulous and there was such an inspiring buzz in the room with such a gathering of like-minded females. Can’t wait for the next one. I’ll be thinking for days, but I think one thing I took away from it was that ‘you can do anything, but you don’t have to do everything’.”

Laura Stevens

“At last, an event for women who are not afraid to question things, to stand out, to engage with the world and make it count. I feel inspired and relieved – with ladies as impressive as these that glass ceiling is looking decidedly flimsy..” 

Abby Chicken

“Really interesting, fun and entertaining. I’m definitely coming back!”

Amy Barton

“Inspiring – at least one quote from each speaker has been ringing in my head since. I also thought the organiser’s efforts to introduce people were great – encouraging mingling is really important at this sort of event.”

Katie Westlake

“Just a quick one to say “congratulations” on your evening!! Great turn out, and you had really good and engaging speakers! Well done. I look forward to the next one!!”

“Fantastic. Inspiring, motivating, reassuring, stimulating. Extremely well planned: the order the speakers were structured was, in my opinion, perfect. Like a good play, a warm start, followed by words to get one to really think just before the intermission and a grand finale that rounds up, reasserts and sums up, so one can go home feeling inspired and reassured, not alone and eager to think more and (hopefully) act.”

Liliana Lombardero

“I just wanted to thank you for putting on such a great event. You were the perfect host and all three women were so inspiring. I came away from it feeling really happy, confident and ready to take on the world, so thank you! “

Ana Foster-Adams

“Great night, many thanks. It was good to attend such an inspiring event and also to attend an event with lots of lovely inspiring ladies and not an annoying power woman in sight!”

“You were a brilliant hostess and the interviews were great. Very well done for organising such a great event and thank you, I felt very inspired!”
