Type Of Speaker


Tanya´s combination of science, research, guidance and advice was clear, accessible, fascinating and entertaining. Feedback from our colleagues has been very positive and many of our teams are now using that advice to improve their work environment and interaction. An hour spent in Tanya´s company was a great investment, and I have no hesitation in recommending her to other companies and organizations.”

Head of Corporate Affairs, Siemens Gamesa

“Tanya spoke at our General Counsel Forum to our senior clients on digital wellbeing. She engaged very effectively with what could potentially have been a cynical or challenging audience and delivered a serious message in a relaxed manner, generating a range of questions and demonstrating her depth of knowledge through Q&As. She was most definitely a hit and I have no hesitation in recommending her.”

Partner, Eversheds Sutherland

“Tanya’s talk was engaging and interactive and generated lots of questions and discussion from the pupils, I would have no hesitation in recommending Tanya to other schools.”

Head of Year, St Paul’s Girls’ School

“Tanya is a joy to work with. She is an expert in the field of tech-life balance, a subject that is relevant for all employees to be reflecting about in today’s fast-paced connected world. Tanya delivered a session for International Women’s Week that resonated across 20 markets and different job roles. As a client, I found Tanya to be flexible, evidence-based, credible – but most importantly – she made us laugh.”

Talent & Diversity Senior Manager, Vodafone

“We were hugely impressed with Tanya’s presentation to our Year 8 pupils and a separate session to parents. Tanya has a wealth of experience to share, and she conveys her knowledge and digital wisdom engagingly and with authority. We look forward to welcoming her back to our school in the near future.”

Deputy Head, Magdalen College School

“The feedback from Tanya’s digital detox keynote at our client dinner has been excellent. It was definitely an enjoyable evening for all who attended. I was asked a few times – “How did you find Tanya? She was so good, she pitched it at just the right level”. Others were sure it was going to be anti-tech and were pleasantly surprised. She really made the evening memorable.”

Managing Director, Aon

“I’ve had the pleasure of having Tanya speak twice now for me in a corporate setting and both times she has been exceptional. Her ability to command an audience and bring stories to life is second to none. Her talks are engaging and very relevant. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a speaker and am looking forward to future engagements.”

Head of Information Security

“We have had some fantastic feedback from Tanya’s talk at the Big Retreat Festival, a few stating it has been life-changing for them. I really hope she can join us again next year!”

Co-Founder, The Big Retreat Festival

What can I say about Tanya? We couldn’t have asked for a better presenter for a top like digital detox, which is so relevant to most adults. Tanya is insightful, fun, full of content and makes her points in a very effective and thought-provoking way. She had her audience’s attention throughout with her easy presenting style and left very practical and achievable tips to improve our wellbeing, as well as pushing across some bigger challenges. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tanya for content/presentations on this topic.
Managing Director, Standard Chartered Bank

The feedback we have had from Tanya’s session was just how brilliant she was. The host found her professional and knowledgeable, other sources have told us that they felt they got lots of takeaways with lots of top tips. It was also incredibly well attended.
Head of Programming, StylistLIVE

Tanya gave a talk to our year 6, 7 and 8s on navigating the digital world. The messages given to the pupils were clear, sensible and reinforced everything that we have been teaching them through form time and PSHCE lessons. Her presentations to the parents in the evening on ‘Teens and Screens’ was spot on! It was lively, entertaining and full of practical advice which the parents found very informative. In this fast-moving digital world, parents were delighted to hear from an expert giving some helpful tips to ensure that their children use technology in a healthy and sensible manner.
Deputy Head (Pastoral), Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls

Tanya gave a superb talk on “digital detoxing” to our virtual partners’ conference a few days ago. The audience is traditionally a sceptical one, to put it mildly. Tanya was excellent. Her delivery was calm, measured and well-judged and her content first class. The talk at our virtual networking after the conference was of little else. We have all been doing our best to bear Tanya’s advice in mind and to put some of her tips into practice – with, inevitably, varying degrees of success. It can sometimes be a little too glib to give a glowing online recommendation, but I would thoroughly recommend Tanya. Her presentation was thoughtful, practical, well-crafted and intelligently made.
