Type Of Speaker


“Winnie was a fantastic guest speaker for our client – a high profile haircare brand team. Super inspiring and engaging, she shared her fresh insights and expertise in beauty and tech innovations to inspire the team. Highly recommended and delightful to work with.”

Thank you soooooo much for your amazing talk! I know I was inspired and we have already got feedback from people saying they loved it too. We can pass on any feedback people have if you want? It’s mainly how much they loved you! (which is always nice to hear).


“In my role as Events Director of GLAMOUR, I had the absolute pleasure of working with and booking Winnie as a speaker for a number of different events. Most recently Winnie was a segment moderator for GLAMOUR’s popular Black Beauty series and hosted The Black Hair Conversation. Not only was Winnie’s delivery seamless, but she expertly captivated our in-person audience whilst simultaneously engaging our online viewers. Winnie also ensured our brand partners and sponsors were name checked – as per the brief – whilst ensuring the conversation flowed organically. Equally, Winnie ensured the Creators being interviewed remained engaging and on topic. I thoroughly enjoy working with Winnie for events and speaker engagements, particularly as when she is booked to speak or moderate, I’m always assured that the segment/s will run smoothly.”
