Official Testimonials

Shereen Daniels is regularly booked to engage audiences at events, read their latest feedback below:

It was an absolute pleasure and a ball to work with Shereen on this year’s Women in IT UK virtual summit. Shereen was one of our co-hosts throughout the day. Her energy was infectious, and the dynamic on screen with Ramat Tejain was brilliant. Shereen was well prepared, provided valuable summaries of each session and was an excellent time keeper. Her knowledge of the DEI and professional development topics made the transition between sessions absolutely seamless. I could not recommend her more as a host. Thank you, Shereen. I cannot wait for us to work together again soon.

Tania, Director of Events, Stubben Edge Group

Shereen gave an inspiring and informative presentation at the UKIC Digital 2020 event yesterday focusing on the skills needed to thrive in the new digital age.

I invited Shereen to speak at one of our HR focused conferences, on the tricky topic of Brexit. Shereen was fantastic to work with and gave an excellent presentation which received great feedback from delegates. We would be thrilled to have her back again. Shereen is a really confident public speaker and clearly very passionate about what she does. Any of our competitors would be lucky to have her on one of their programmes.
