Sam Turner was our featured speaker for our Wear it Purple Day event in 2018. In providing an on point, tailored and inspiring speech that met the brief we gave her Sam exceeded our expectations. Her combination of personal story, demonstrated business impact, and vision for the future generated an ongoing conversation and impetus for working for inclusion. I recommend Sam highly to those looking for an insightful, engaging and visionary speaker who can inspire commitment to change.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sam Turner talk about the importance of having targets around Inclusion & Diversity, including not only the white anglo saxon females but the inclusion of women of colour and LGBTI, women with a disability, and other groups. In particular, I thought it was really interesting hearing Sam Turner explain bias, and how to identify it and then flip it on its head! Thank you for your invaluable insights, humour and honesty which made the event such a success.
