What Maggie Aderin Pocock's clients say
"The audience were utterly hooked on the material and I don't think I've met anyone quite so warm and engaging in an age. The passion she has for the subject matter is utterly infectious. Please pass on our thanks for a truly fantastic talk."
"A different type of speaker for us - and the feedback was very enthusiastic"
"She did very well indeed - we wanted a speaker who would enthuse and inspire and Maggie's natural enthusiasm is infectious and although her work is more focused on 'space' her more general message about reaching high and being bold was equally strong"
"Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock met and exceeded all of our objectives. She was able to use tales of her own life and career to inspire the audience to pursue their dreams. The audience were very pleased with the speaker and came out of the ceremony feeling motivated. The audience were also very interested to hear that Dr. Aderin- Pocock had been working on the Rosetta Mission the week before, as this was another exciting story which she was able to share. Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock was extremely personable as she added humor to her speech to engage the audience."
"She received a great response and we had lots of teachers in the audience saying that if only she had taught them science, they would be astronauts by now!! Our event went down very well and her positive and funny presentation was a joy to listen to. More importantly, it pushed a love of STEM subjects and called for more females to take the lead in science which was a positive message that many of our delegates strongly agree with. Please do pass on my personal thanks to her - she was a highlight of the day."
