"Dear Sharon (Founder of NBGN)…..a massive thank you for leading our conference on Saturday. I really enjoyed it, and found you a very relaxing speaker to listen to! It was motivating and practical and offered solutions. I wish we had had more folk to join us,  they really missed out, but  I was pleased anyway.


I felt it was absolutely the right agenda, and was pleased that our Black and Asian governors felt affirmed having you lead it…I love your style and the easy way that you present..You know exactly what you are talking about, and make it very accessible for everyone."

"I have taken on a Parent Governor role at my son's primary school. I have found learning the role a challenge, with few people to ask for help, except the Chairperson.
Since listening to your Podcasts I have learnt so much and I am only on session 8. I listen to you both as I walk my dog around the park. You are both so knowledgeable, speak so eloquently and make the understanding of being a governor so accessible. Thanks to you, for the first time tonight, I am going to a meeting prepared, with my papers and questions to ask all organised. Thanks for sharing your expertise and for helping me understand the role."
