Type Of Speaker


Winnie was a fantastic guest speaker for our client – a high-profile haircare brand team. Super inspiring and engaging, she shared her fresh insights and expertise in beauty and tech innovations to inspire the team. Highly recommend and delightful to work with.
Carla Dowling, Unilever

Winnie, your session was brilliant – so insightful, so thought-provoking, so enlightening. You were magic up on our big Salon Smart stage and provided attendees with stacks to think about. AND you were name-checked by quite a few other speakers – from the stage – afterwards! Honestly, you were MADE for the stage! – and here’s hoping you can stay the day next time.

We’re just super stoked we got to have you for the time we did. I hope you are feeling very proud of yourself, as we are of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for giving up your precious time to join us at this sell-out event, and for helping to make it so special.

Thank you so much Winnie, you gave us such an incredible and truly inspirational start to AcrossRCA multidisciplinary programme.
Tom Snowden, Royal College of Art

Not only was Winnie’s delivery seamless, but she expertly captivated our in-person audience whilst simultaneously engaging our online viewers, ensuring the conversation flowed organically. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Winnie for events and speaker engagements, and I’m always assured that the segment/s will run smoothly.
