I wanted to take this opportunity to say a warm thank you to Baroness Benjamin for a truly thought-provoking, powerful and amazing inspirational talk at this year’s Deloitte Black History Month celebration. I can honestly say everyone is still buzzing from last week. Here is just a sprinkle of some of the wonderful feedback I have been inundated with following Floella’s inspirational talk:

‘It shook me to my core – the strength of Baroness Benjamin’s story and experience, and the power of her inspirational message abo ut changing the future – I laughed, cried (lots) and came away feeling truly inspired’.

‘I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the event and was certainly not expecting to be taken on such a rollercoaster of emotions. I was completely enthralled by the Baroness. Truly inspirational lady and a beautiful human being’.
