Testimonials as a Motivational Speaker 

“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

“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

“A thought provoking and engaging speech; made me think about how much time I spend on my phone rather than engaging in the real world. I spent the train journey home looking out of the window rather than checking Facebook! Thank you Tanya for pointing out that excessive use of technology can damage our well being.”

Global Coordinator, Lockton Global

“We have had fantastic feedback from Tanya’s ‘Digital Wellbeing’ talk, I think she got a lot of people thinking and her presentation style was amazing – natural and engaging.”

Executive Director, Nomura

“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 came to speak to the Simply Business team as part of our Wellbeing Week. Her talk was engaging and informative and we’ve had great feedback on her session and the practical tips. We would highly recommend her to other businesses looking to explore digital wellbeing.”

People Partner, Simply Business

Tanya’s warm and conversational approach was highly engaging and inclusive for our audience and she was so flexible in shaping her workshop around our specific needs. I would highly recommend her for any corporate workshops or keynote speaking requirements.”

Director, Clive

“Tanya came to talk to our Global HR Leaders Conference about digital wellbeing. We worked together effectively to tailor some great content which we are now using as the cornerstone of our internal Digital Balance proposition. Tanya’s delivery and knowledge of the subject, and effervescent personality, really helped us gain huge support in our journey to being an organisation with a holistic view on wellbeing.”

Director, Safety and Wellbeing, Vodafone

“This was one of the best sessions at Nomura that I have ever attended! The content was really fascinating, thought-provoking and extremely useful. I am certainly going to act on some of the themes that were raised by Tanya. I would also praise Tanya – she was a really effective presenter and kept my attention for the full session.”

Participant, Digital Wellbeing workshop, Nomura

“Tanya recently spoke at an event for the Royal Society for Public Health on social media and young people’s mental health. She is a great speaker in the digital space, with credibility, long expertise and excellent delivery. She was also really good on a panel answering questions from the audience. I would highly recommend her as a speaker.”


“What can I say about Tanya? We couldn’t have asked for a better presenter for a topic 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

“Absolutely fascinating presentation from Tanya at Eversheds Sutherlands today and an important reminder that reducing screen time does not mean a reduction in work efficiency and productivity.”

Senior Marketing Manager, Eversheds Sutherlands

“We thoroughly enjoyed the talk yesterday – came out of the room feeling uplifted and very engaged – she is a very good speaker.”

Participant, Standard Chartered Bank

“Tanya gave a fascinating talk on the need for digital detoxing to staff at The Inner Temple, introducing ideas that will be useful both inside and outside work. The session has certainly stimulated discussion about our own policies and practices!”

Leader of Staff Wellbeing Team, The Inner Temple

“The organisation is constantly looking at issues that affect the health and wellbeing of staff.  Inviting Tanya to give information to our Health and Wellbeing Advocates was an area we really considered to be important to staff and their families. 

The delegates at the workshop agreed that they hadn’t previously considered how much they spend on digital devices during the average day and how that affects them and their life.  Thanks to Tanya, a very thought provoking session and something our Advocates will share with their colleagues back in their own office locations.”

Health & Wellbeing Manager, Royal College of Nursing

“Tanya is a fount of knowledge and wisdom on the subject of ‘Digital Overload’. She peppers her talk with fascinating facts, amusing anecdotes, and gives practical advice on how we can tear ourselves away from our screens!

Director, Women of the Year

“We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Tanya as guest speaker to our first Cyber Protect & Young People conference in Hampshire. Tanya gave a 90 minute input to an audience of teachers, youth workers, school and college education co-ordinators, plus colleagues from within our force and other visiting police forces.

Her insight into the digital world and the impact it can have on young people, and how we can actively encourage them to ‘step away from their devices’ and well-being was extremely valuable and incisive. It seriously had me considering my own digital behaviour and detoxing!

She has a depth of knowledge and a clear passion for her expert subject area which was well received by all delegates. Tanya is an excellent, engaging speaker and we very much look forward to working with her and welcoming her to Hampshire again in the future.
