"Rebecca has natural charisma and enthusiasm and is clearly an emerging thought leader in this field with an untold amount of knowledge. She is an inspiration for people living with dementia."

We were fortunate enough to have Rebecca deliver a really thought provoking and engaging presentation about dementia.

In 45 minutes I felt I went from being a novice to feeling much more confident about understanding the symptoms and its effects. I subsequently found myself having conversations with friends and family afterwards about their experiences of dementia, and I even felt like I was at times, a guru, such was the information I was able to take in.

"Rebecca delivered a Dementia Friends session for staff at Arsenal F.C. as part of our drive to be part of Islington’s push to be a dementia friendly borough."

The session was well delivered and very relevant to many areas of our operations.
