Her presentations include how to recognise your unconscious bias, why and how are we all biased? Positive and negative bias and how to become an inclusive leader.

Hayley’s session was really interesting and you could see the passion she has for her subject. We had the best feedback we have ever had from an event and delegates really took her message on board.
A great session, thank you so much! I have already contacted HR to look at if we can make some changes around our bank holidays to accommodate those who celebrate other religious festivals as thought that was a great idea! I will be taking a few things away, including ‘boomerang’, taking 2 extra seconds and talking last!
Fantastic opportunity to spend dedicated time on D&I and really brought to life with all the examples.
Thanks for a great session. Made what can sometimes feel like a minefield much more accessible and approachable.
Hayley recently ran an inclusive leadership session for all our people Leaders covering unconscious bias. I think it’s clear to say Hayley exceeded our expectations. What was really impactful was the fact that Hayley doesn’t deliver her session in the normal training style but rather in a more natural engaging and participative way which captured the attention of everyone!
We have embarked on our DE&I journey. Thank you for your inspiring, engaging and insightful presentation during our Leadership Conference. You raised our awareness but also our confidence in this important topic.
Hayley recently delivered her inspiring session to over 3000 people at our annual conference. She really tailored her messaging to our colleagues and business and managed to make D&I practical and tangible. I know she has already received really great feedback from the audience, and we continue to hear how enlightening, thought provoking and interesting her session was.
Hayley spoke to our whole firm as part of our IWD events. Her talk was a fantastic mix of theory, practical tips and personal anecdotes and struck the perfect note. We’ve had some great feedback and it’s created just the right platform for further conversations and work. I’d highly recommend Hayley to anyone looking for something similar.
Hayley recently spoke at our global company meeting on the topic of Diversity, Unconscious Bias and Inclusivity in the workplace. Hayley and her team were a joy to work with when finalising the details of the content and deliverables. The talk was engaging, thought-provoking and a great kick off to our speaker series. I would highly recommend Hayley as her talk really takes you on the journey with her!
Hayley ran a webinar for us as part of us celebrating International Women’s Day. She was engaging, authentic and thought provoking. Her session was filled with really useful tips and ideas to help overcome limiting beliefs and step outside your comfort zone. She brings her messages to life by sharing real life personal stories which leave you feeling very inspired and ready to seize the day! Thank you Hayley.
Hayley delivered a course of sessions for us on Inclusive Leadership. The course content was interesting and provocative, generating ideas for practical steps to interrupt bias at work. Importantly she created a safe space for attendees to share their views. I really enjoyed the session and Hayley’s open and non-judgmental style – would definitely recommend to others!
