"Joanne and Marie gave a wonderful and heartfelt speaker session at ManyPets last week - to continue our Pride celebrations and shine a light on transgender issues across our global business. Both Joanne and Marie were succinct, open, and inspirational and it was fascinating to hear of her journey from both sides of their relationship. I'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in my network who is looking to raise awareness and understand more about how we can all be allies to people in the trans community. Thank you again for your time!"

Jennifer Gabrielle - Talent Acquisition at ManyPets

"By chance, I just happened to meet Joanne Lockwood just before I delivered my talk at the People Power conference. Joanne kindly stayed for my talk so out of courtesy I thought it only polite to do the same. I arrogantly however, thought I pretty much knew most things about Diversity and Inclusion so thought it would be interesting, because Joanne seemed lovely and interesting, but if I'm to be totally honest... I didn't think I'd learn anything new. My goodness how wrong could I be!!!!! Not only did Joanne open my eyes to so many things I hadn't considered before but I also don't remember feeling so inspired by a speaker who can turn a subject about something we all think we know more than we actually do, into something so interesting, clever and moving! So, a massive thank you to you Joanne, I'm so lucky and grateful that I just so happened to sit next to you!"

Lysa Morrison - Strategic HR Management at The Shiny Happy People

"Straight out of an engaging inclusion session with the fabulous Joanne Lockwood, such a calm influencer on such an emotive subject, managed to get our entire management team listening and learning about all thing’s equality, can’t recommend Joanne enough… helping us put our learning into meaningful action and educating us all the way… you rock Joanne."
