Amna was an incredible speaker and very engaging. Great feedback from all who attended.
Amna was an absolute pleasure to deal with – very relaxed and nothing was a fuss or bother. She is an excellent speaker – very natural and authentic, which resonated with our people. She took the time to meet with staff afterwards which was really lovely of her. It was particularly lovely to see how many of our culturally diverse female staff met with her and shared how her story had inspired them. I’d absolutely recommend her to anyone.
Amna was great – she had the audience captivated throughout the event.

We have just concluded our Global Inclusion Month, the month of October here at Norton Rose Fulbright and I wanted to email to say a huge thank you for your wonderful presentation.
We had a range of events during Global Inclusion Month and none of them received the feedback that your speech received. People were so inspired by your warmth, your success and the way you talk about creating inclusion authentically. We are truly grateful for the effort you put into tailoring what you were saying to a group of “corporates” but also to the theme of our Global Inclusion Month, thinking differently together.
