“Annie gave a wonderful presentation to an audience of around 150 people from the Exeter Business community. She painted a very real picture of the extraordinary commitment both physically and emotionally that is demanded of a world class athlete and included many personal gems of information in a most entertaining way of what it was like behind the scenes. For ordinary mortals it is very stimulating to meet someone who has pushed herself to such exceptional lengths and heights.”

Annie took great care to understand what we wanted from her presentation, and on the day she really delivered. Her speech was inspiring, motivating and full of advice tailored to our organisation, and the activities she prepared helped us put her words into practice. Friendly, engaging, and a natural public speaker, she made a witty, fascinating speech that had everyone’s attention from the start and gave us all food for thought.

We knew we needed to provide a special evening and that Annie would be the speaker to do so.  Her easy but assured ability to communicate inspired the audience.

Of all the interviews I’ve done, Olympic ones too, I felt that you understood best what I was trying to say, and asked the most thoughtful questions.

Annie gave a warm and lively speech … Her speech was very well received by alumni who have requested to have her speak again in future.  Her talk really contributed to the event, and brought a personal touch.

Annie speaks with clarity, without hesitation and in a straightforward manner holding the attention of her audience.
