Testimonials

“Ayesha gave us some real and no-punches-pulled insight into Labour and politics more widely, which is something you don’t hear that often at a corporate gig. She managed to make everyone laugh while maintaining a serious presentation. She is also a very uplifting presence on stage, if that makes sense. I’m a big fan and expected her to be good – but she was superb. Feedback from the audience has been uniformly excellent.”
