Feedback: “I thought the talk was very inspiring and it captured the attention of my sixteen year old son, who has felt quite unfocused and de-motivated this year with lockdown and lack of face to face teaching, it was a much needed healthy dose of positive can-do’ness.”

“I thought Miss Bell did an EXCELLENT job telling her story as well as offering encouragement and practical suggestions for young people who may be interested in this career direction. It was a very natural, easy and informative talk.”

“Great event and superb enthusiasm from the presenter.”

“We all thought this was one of the best presentations we’ve seen in a long time. Dr Bell was AWESOME!”
