“I thought that Nicola did an extremely good job at engaging with the room. Her talk generated lots of discussion and questions which shows how much people connected with the message of her presentation. Her delivery was informed, funny and relatable. As a self-avowed bookworm I liked how she recommended books so that I can explore the ideas she introduced in more detail”

Titania are a great company to work with and it's been a pleasure to work with Nicola who I believe is a passionate and visionary leader. Titania have a huge amount to offer the security world and their product is innovative and world leading.
It's the first time I've been able to see Nicola present for one of our Boot camps, however she was without a doubt my favorite speaker from the day and when I fed that back internally, there was no surprise. Katy (Digital Catapult) commented "she is always one of our strongest mentors whenever she's able to attend"
Nicola's Presentation was fantastic. She always approaches subjects from a unique angle to ensure the audience really engages with her and hangs on her every word. When she gains their interest she makes sure she pays it off with excellent knowledge and actionable advice. Nicola is one of the best speakers on the Cyber speaker track.
“Nicola is a thoroughly engaging speaker who really goes the extra mile to deliver thought-provoking content. Nicola is naturally a very warm and friendly person, who has an excellent ability to use wit and humour to keep complex subject matters digestible and interesting. Overall, a brilliant speaker with excellent feedback from delegates who attended our event.”
"Nicola presented at our Women's Business Forum in September to around 100 business professionals. Nicola's delivery was exceptional, her humerous presentation was enjoyed by everyone and her knowledge in her specialist field shone through."
