Oxford University Student Union, Engagement Coordinator

"The presentation really challenged and broadened the perspectives of the young people and it was just what they needed to help them take their next steps in social impact and careers. It was spot on the brief and has set a new benchmark for the quality of training and speakers."


"Time flies when you’re having fun. And that’s exactly how Bofta’s presentation at our association was today: F-U-N! Not only was she very professional, engaging, energetic and confident, but her material was insightful, relevant and well-structured."


"Bofta is a top-notch speaker and content curator. With minimal direction from our team, she delivered outstanding, engaging, professional content that was tailored specifically to our customer's needs. Not only were our customers happy...but we are thrilled and hope to work with Bofta again in the future."
