Vanessa was our guest speaker at this year’s Founder’s Day. She pitched her talk so brilliantly that she grabbed the attention of all the pupils, who ranged in age from 11 to 18. She was honest and direct, and her talk was both practical and reflective. She made her address so lively and interesting that the girls kept her here for an extra hour, firing questions at her! She was really inspirational.

Mrs Jo Heywood, Headmistress Heathfield School

Vanessa is a very inspiring person, providing practical tips on how to develop one’s network and career. Her enthusiasm is contagious!
