'A Superior Learning' with Champion Simon Bucknall "High Impact Speaking" Workshop at MLP London Bridge Speakers - March 2018
"In 2018, Simon coached me with public speaking, style, helped write my pitch, and gave me every imaginable tip to manage my nerves, present with esteem, conviction and win over the audience - with his help I went on to pitch to 3,000 people and win the World Social Enterprise competition.
