“If you could pass on our thanks to Suzie, what a great talk, had amazing feedback from the team, they found it really interesting and informative and I just wanted Suzie to know that she had a massive impact on them. We had 94 participants at one point which is pretty impressive when we are all zoom fatigued and I have had many requests for the recording from those who couldn’t see it. Suzie brought a greater understanding on climate change to us all.”
“Thank you so much for coming to our event last night and for your wonderful and inspiring presentation to our crowd. You hit absolutely the right notes for what we are hoping to achieve with Antarctica In Sight – to engage with Antarctica, its past, present and future and how we might understand and protect it – I couldn’t be happier. The feedback we have had from the event has been tremendous, and we owe that in no small part to you, the room was buzzing afterward.”
“We were delighted with Suzie, thank you. The lunch went really well and the pupils (and staff) enjoyed what Suzie had to say, she was a great blend of humour and inspiration. Thank you very much for the connection!”
