Testimonials as a Speaker for Schools

 

“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 presentation 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 some helpful tips to ensure that their children use technology in a healthy and sensible manner. Thank you, Tanya!”

Deputy Head (Pastoral), Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls

“Tanya delivered a talk to the Years 5 & 6 girls and then to our staff and whole school parental body. We found her talk to be instructive and thought provoking.  She provided plenty of practical ideas for parents and staff concerned about children’s digital lives. I would highly recommend her for parent & teacher talks! Her friendly, but no nonsense approach, encouraged parents to take action regarding children’s use of screens.

Associate Head of Curriculum, Norland Place School

“Tanya spoke to our Vth form and separately to the whole school parents. Her no-nonsense and sensible approach engaged the students and also empowered the parents with regards to the issues surrounding device use.  We have had excellent feedback and parents have stated that they feel significantly more confident with laying out clear boundaries at home.  In addition, it has helped the school evaluate our procedures with regards to screen time so that we can take positive steps forward.”

Deputy Head Pastoral, Hurstpierpoint College

“Tanya visited our school in October 2017, her presentation to parents was excellent. Tanya targeted the need to raise awareness of the effect social media has on young people today. Having statistics drawn from recent research had a positive impact and I’m certain the parents and staff came away with a wealth of knowledge that will help them manage their children’s use of ‘screen time’ in the future. 

We will most certainly be welcoming Tanya back in to school so that she can speak to the children themselves and enhance our safeguarding and pastoral care.

Assistant Head (Designated Safeguarding Lead), The Oratory Prep School

Headmaster, St Benedict’s School, Ealing

“Tanya has given a number of talks at St Mary’s School Ascot to parents and pupils from Year 8 to Upper VI over the last two years. Tanya has addressed a variety of topics including social media envy, privacy and safety, internet addiction and building a positive online profile. We have found Tanya’s talks to be clear, current, insightful and well received by both pupils and parents who have found them very relevant. I would highly recommend Tanya as a speaker in schools.”

Deputy Headmistress, St Mary’s School Ascot

“Tanya talked to our Year 10s on internet addiction and managing their digital lives, her talk was really informative and engaging! I would definitely recommend her to other schools looking for a speaker on the subject.”

PSHE Coordinator, Balcarras School, Cheltenham

“Tanya’s presentation on Managing your Digital Footprint was perceptive and revealing, delving into current issues such as internet addition, dealing with your brand online and how other people see you, as well as the distortion of reality on social media. The Lower VI students found it informative and thoroughly engaging.”

Enrichment Coordinator and Director of Studies, d’Overbroeck’s, Oxford

“Tanya gave a series of engaging and informative talks to Year 8 and 9 students and also to parents. She was a most impressive speaker.”

Parent, Senior school talk

“Great, engaging speech. I feel empowered to wrestle those phones off them now!”

Parent, Junior school talk

“Tanya kick-started our Year 6 ‘Stepping into Business’ project with a thought-provoking yet entertaining talk. The girls were enraptured from the very beginning and were fascinated to learn more about entrepreneurship and how to succeed in business. Tanya is an inspiring role model for the girls and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to other schools or ask her to be involved in future projects.”

Director of Studies, Kensington Prep School 

“Thank you so much for coming to my school to do your talk, I found it really interesting and useful!”
