Testimonials

“Juliette was a joy to work with both from an organiser’s perspective and from the feedback from attendees. She is a brilliant speaker and hit exactly the right balance between serious and irreverent in her contribution. The feedback from her session was 100% positive with many saying she was the highlight of the conference for them. I very much hope she will continue to be engaged with us and many thanks from Feminism in London!”

Julian Norman – Programme Manager (Feminism in London Conference 2015 – Juliette was a speaker on 25 October 2015)

 

“Juliette tells her own story of mental health with a rare candour and honest humour that can’t fail to challenge audiences. She compels people to question their own attitudes, or perhaps judgements, and in so doing makes an invaluable contribution to the fight against the stigma and discrimination that still surrounds mental health problems. In exposing her personal story through comedy, Juliette makes the very real issue of mental health accessible – inspiring discussion and igniting a spark of personal empowerment in us all.”

Paul Farmer – CEO of Mind (Juliette spoke at Mind’s CEO conference on 3rd November 2015)

 

“You made an excellent contribution at our [Time To Change] events and the feedback we’ve had, has been fantastic. People found you amazing, refreshing, informative, engaging and funny. You really spoke from the heart and brought a very difficult subject to life for your audience.”

Dorothy Deacon (Health & Wellbeing)/ Gavin Morris (Strategy Planning) – Time To Change campaign – (Department of Business Innovation and Skills speaker – October 2015)

 

“We can’t thank Juliette enough for her wonderful performance and for the impact she had on our night. She’s a remarkable, brave and caring woman, who is an inspiration to those who are affected by mental health. Her performance brought the reality of mental health issues to the surface, whilst bringing humour to the room. She accommodated her speech to fit specifically with our cause and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Weeks later and we still have guests telling us how incredible they thought Juliette was and the impact her words had on them”.

Scarlett Jeffrey – Westmeria Counselling Services – (annual ball guest speaker – October 2015)

 

“A fantastic, witty, intelligent and professional host. Juliette was full of energy and enthusiasm both on, and off the stage, interacting and keeping our audience laughing and on the edge of their seats throughout. She is laugh out loud funny but with the ability to address serious issues in an engaging and unique way. An absolute joy to work with!”

Tim Pottle, Director of Content, TEDxWarwick

 

“I wanted to personally thank you for presenting at the awards last week. You were really amazing and I know how many people your words touched. We’ve had fantastic feedback from the launch week and hope the campaign will now go from strength to strength. I really hope you will continue to be involved as an ambassador.”

Deborah Potts – YMCA England

 

“Many thanks for coming in yesterday! You really are fantastic! You really were incredibly inspirational to the students and my colleagues were also raving about how good the show was.”

Anna Myatt – Stoke Newington School

 

“Last night I was talking to the audience members from your show….every one of them enjoyed it, some said it was the best they’d seen so far in this year’s festival and were profoundly moved by it.”

Keith Walker – Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival

 

“I would just like to thank you so much for performing at our ComEDy Gala on Monday. We have had fantastic feedback on the event. I have had the privilege of seeing Juliette perform her different shows on a number of occasions. I have always been very impressed with the quality of her work and the way that she makes serious  issues such as body image and eating disorders funny and accessible to her audience. I would highly recommend Juliette.”

Cheryl Armitage – Beat (beating eating disorders)

 

“You’re a real professional. It’s so great to see how you’ve managed to turn your experience with body image into such a positive thing through your show and I think your story is one so many people can learn from.”

Becci Gould – Be Real campaign (Forster Communications)
