What Laura Bates's clients say
"Thank you so much for today, it was an amazing message for our school community to hear. Thanks for planning and delivering it so well. The content is so important and for all of us who have been subject to sexism in all its forms. You pitched it perfectly and your mastery when it came to adapting it for the older ones was impressive. The staff room was buzzing and so were our kids."
"On behalf of the partners of Taylor Wessing LLP I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Laura for presenting at our offices last week. Her presentation was pitched at just the right level and was considered by us all to be a huge success – hard hitting but thoughtful and insightful at the same time. We've had some great feedback from many of the attendees and that is exactly what we were hoping to achieve."
"What an inspirational talk for us! Thank you so much for delivering such an empowering and encouraging message with such clarity, confidence and intelligence. Girls and staff were all raving about it afterwards."
"Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Thank you so much - by far one of the most engaged audiences we've had and I'm not surprised - as someone has said it's just such a beautifully simple idea it's delightful to see the fires it's lit. Really well done."
"Many thanks for your fantastic talk at GSS. For many people, yours was the highlight of the conference."
"I have never known such a response to a speaker before. So many staff and pupils have spoken to or emailed me already, saying they think you should come back next year – or next week actually! – as you were the most amazing speaker we’ve ever had and your topic and project are so hugely relevant. I felt as though my eyes had been opened."
"Your talk was fantastically engaging and debunked so many of the myths we hear and even hold subconsciously as women. My colleagues were still talking about your talk at lunchtime – people left the room very invigorated and spurred to action."
"Your visit last time was truly inspirational for all. It was a wonderful highlight of the year… a truly fabulous session. If I may say so, there was no finer guest speaker in my nineteen years here."
"Genuinely had a bit of a cry listening to Laura. Don’t know if it’s just feeling validated and that my own experience isn’t me ‘being dramatic’. But thank you. Incredibly stark and scary but I think that having a talk like this really had a massive impact."
"I have received many positive comments from staff and boys alike about the day and I would like to thank you once again for the tremendous work that you did for us."
"Laura was an absolutely brilliant speaker -- her presentation was accessible, powerful, impeccably researched and evidenced and engaging. It was a masterclass and did a tremendous amount to elevate our event and the dialogues that took place during it."
