“Articulate, informed, and inspirational… a consummate professional; Daisy is a clear cut above the rest making difficult subjects both interesting and accessible.’”- Daniel Macaulay, CEO of BrandWave
“We booked Daisy to help us understand how to speak to diverse audiences better; in only 30 minutes, Daisy taught us so much about belonging, visibility and language. It was a fascinating introduction into how to use creative storytelling to be more authentic and meaningful, both to connect with our people internally but also our customers and wider audiences. Daisy put us at ease straightaway and was warm and funny; there was a queue for questions afterwards! We will definitely be rebooking her again as we continue our diversity journey.” – Charlotte Pearce, co-founder of Inkpact and Forbes 30 under 30 winner
