"Yesterday was a huge success. I hope Ruby enjoyed being at Google, as much as we enjoyed hosting her."


"We thought you were brilliant. You were lovely to work with and the audience was captivated. The reason they had you on last was to keep the delegates at the event and the room was bursting to the seams. You did a fantastic job and had everyone in the room joining in the mind exercises."


"She offered us not just a funny, moving and thoughtful performance, but was willing to share what are clearly tough memories and allow us to enter into her thinking about issues that are absolutely pertinent to the daily working lives of Headteachers. She gave us new ideas, bold and startling insights and above all, hope - no mean feat for an after dinner speech."
