Education Testimonials

"so many outstanding comments...

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 15:10

"Joy was recommended to me by someone whom I have used previously. Her enthusiasm, her willingness to support and her absolute promise was exceeded 10-fold. The event was a Student Conference which the College holds annually. I asked Joy to speak about Behaviour, Expectation, Aspiration and Motivation (BEAM) and that's exactly what she did. I have never seen students or staff for that matter, so engaged, completely absorbed by her stories of motivation. And I have never had so many outstanding comments about one person's 1 hour input. Thank you so much Joy" — Paula McQuilkin, Quality, Performance & Standards, Kirklees College

"Joy is a really wonderful speaker and is extremely wise. If I could learn this much from her in just an hour I can imagine what she is capable of.

Her workshops are creative, inspiring, knowledgable and presented with a passion that comes from the heart. Joy has made a positive lasting impression on me and all the other SIFE Loughborough students who have met her. I think it's fair to say she has provided more inspiration and motivation than all of my University lecturers put together! Thank you Joy". - Rose Marie Almond - SIFE - Students in Free Enterprise - Loughborough University

"When thinking of motivational speakers for our recent Teaching Assistant Conference in Northamptonshire, Joy Marsden was the first to pop into my mind! We were privileged and honoured to have Joy deliver our key note speech to over 80 Primary School Teaching Assistants.

She was inspiring, motivating, insightful and uplifting...definitely set the scene for a really engaging development day! Further evidenced by comments from the audience..." Joy was amazing, very inspirational and made us all feel uplifted and better about ourselves and what we are doing in school".

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Joy and look forward to working with her again in the future. Thank you Joy! Meena Mistry, Organisational and Workforce Development Advisor, LGSS
