Adah is a delight. Her energy and enthusiasm are matched only by her knowledge and intellect and she possesses that enviable attribute to truly engage an audience. Her presentations weave useful, salient points throughout a highly personal narrative meaning delegates always leave with something. That she’s super organised and knows just about everyone is simply a bonus!
