Karen, your dinner presentation with Tim was amazing! Your style of presenting was highly professional, informative and engaging. You were very tuned into the audience, and clearly knew what you were talking about. Feedback included: ‘my highlight was Karen Armstrong’ and ‘I was impressed with the inclusion, from left field, of a presentation on self-defence. This is extremely important for all women, and increased knowledge leads to an increase in overall confidence.
