Mandy's story is an exceptionally engaging one. We invited her to address a group of our Senior Managers using her time in training and active duty as a backdrop for the bigger theme of Empowerment. Right from the start, Mandy had our audience of senior business people enthralled with stories of front line conflict. Inviting us into an audio-visual experience of her "office" was a particularly effective way to draw us right into her world and we certainly felt our pulse rates rising! Having created a realistic sense of the danger and high stakes under which she and her colleagues worked daily, Mandy drew our attention to the absolute necessity of building an empowering and trusting environment for our own people. As managers we were left with a powerful impression of the importance of making decisions that actively empower our teams to step up and to learn, first on safe "training ground" and ultimately in high stakes contexts. I would thoroughly recommend Mandy as a speaker. She tells her story impressively, and with great humour, and works hard to understand the situation into which she is speaking. Thank you Mandy for an excellent event.
I would be grateful if you could pass on to Mandy Hickson our very great thanks for her wonderful talk at our Annual Federation Meeting last Wednesday. Feedback from the members indicates that many of them thought that she was one of the best speakers the Federation has ever had. She was informative, interesting, amusing and definitely inspiring. We wish her well in her new enterprise of Inspiring Women into Work.
Many thanks for your contributions to the SPRA Dinner. It requires a lot of pizazz to keep an audience of predominantly males in the roofing industry onside and you achieved that with great aplomb!

We found the delivery and content of her talk to be highly relevant, motivational and inspirational. Having followed up with some of our prospective customers from Npower, for example, they were particularly pleased to see a lady on the agenda, being ladies themselves this might not be a surprise! We would be delighted to endorse Mandy's professionalism and attention to detail and were appreciative of the humour that she brought to bear on the subject matter. The highlight of the talk for me, was her ability to share her personal experience on the mission and to bring the audience along with her. There was complete silence in the large conference room and rapt attention from the diverse audience, which is always a wholly positive sign.
We have been trying to get Mandy for two years now and she was worth the wait. Her presentation was spot on!

Mandy was empathetic, well prepared and very professional. She was extremely pleasant to work with. Her presentation was spot on – an excellent mixture of personal experience combined with learning points on leadership, plus good quality visuals and film.

Just a note to say that Mandy was excellent! The feedback from our audience was that they found her inspirational and motivating. She was a perfect fit for our day and we would recommend her to others – thank you.
The feedback we had from our sales team about Mandy's talk was without exception the best ever. Really well done, thank you. Her story is a great one but the way she linked it to our company goals was ‘spot-on’ and made it more useful. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as the best speaker we have employed and we’ve been doing this for 15 years. I realise that I might be a little biased being a burgeoning pilot or even ‘star struck’ in the presence of a Tornado pilot, but the feedback was the same from the non-flyers as well, tremendous!
Totally captivating. One of the best motivational speakers I have heard

Mandy spoke at our virtual event celebrating International Women's Day. What an inspiring session with and full of comedy too! She was passionate, engaging and has a great message. She was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and we’d highly recommend her as a guest speaker.
