"Pippa was an engaging and thought-provoking speaker at our annual conference. It was fascinating to hear her inside view on the biggest scoops of the last few years and listen to her speak passionately about the principles that drive her investigative journalism. She also never forgot her audience, relating her stories back to the experiences of those listening."
"The feedback I heard was really positive and one delegate said that they loved that you weaved in the latest news in your keynote so it really was the most recent information you were including."
"Pippa was absolutely great. Genuine, interesting, fun. Perfect."
"Pippa’s session definitely was the busiest final session we have had in a while as delegates stayied to hear her so that was great."
