“Paris’ session was informative, imaginative and intriguing! The learners were encouraged greatly by her motivational nature and the interactive feature of her session. Feedback was that they felt their opinions and thoughts were valued as much as the person sitting beside them. As a result I can happily say many of the learners have reached their aims and goals in employment. We cannot thank Paris enough!”

Christophe Ah-Hang, Catch22 Employability & Training Manager for Under 25s.
”Our students thoroughly enjoyed the presentation Paris delivered, it was inspiring and they learnt a lot from it. Our students are nervous & apprehensive before starting the course, some have been going through depression, stress & anxiety which is extremely demotivating.
Paris has a style which boosts their confidence and self-esteem, encourages them to not giving up, using her words of wisdom and stories of hope. She’s a great teacher, motivator and all round speaker. Awesome!”Jamie Easton – Head of School, Newham College of Further Education, London.”Paris was well organised, keen and positive with very good subject knowledge, who related clearly and professionally to the students who were motivated by her. Her skills as a speaker are unique and inspiring. Some of our most disadvantaged students were moved by what she had to say .”
Gus Nwanokwu Programme Manager, Westminster College
