 Institutional Investor says she was “voted the best/favourite” 

The Economist says they were “inundated with enthusiastic feedback” 

EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards “top rated speaker”

Showstopper status “and her “ability to captivate a room is uncanny.

Pippa was just what we were looking for in a speaker as far as energy and topic. She was one of the highlights of the entire event, and a great way to kick off the Top Women Advisors Summit. Pippa is so smart and knowledgeable, yet her content was still very relatable and easy to understand. She struck a chord with everyone in the audience.

This morning’s speech was easily one of the best I’ve heard – if not THE best – in the last ten years of Capital Connection events, and the feedback I’ve received thus far has been stellar as well. I honestly think Pippa could still be fielding questions from the audience if we had enough time to allow it.

Pippa is one of the most engaging and powerful speakers I have seen in many years as an event producer, and she has the valuable ability to talk about complex ideas with perfect clarity.
