What Clients Say

What Clients Say

"Let’s be honest. Speaking to teens is not for the faint of heart. They can smell a fake from a mile away and aren’t shy about sharing their feelings of disinterest or boredom. This has never been the case with Harriet. Harriet is the only speaker I will use for my teen empowerment events and here’s why - she is authentic. Harriet does not talk down to or patronize her audience. She takes the time to form a genuine bond with students by sharing personal experiences and general observations of everyday life. She is not afraid to confront uncomfortable topics - like bullying or eating disorders - head on with teens. It’s like they’ve just been waiting for an adult to acknowledge all the serious pressures they face, and that’s what Harriet does. She is able to look right at them and say, 'I know what you’re dealing with and I know it’s hard but you are better than this and you can get through it.'

Harriet consistently reaches my students on a level that I can only hope to achieve. I will never use anyone else."
