As a speaker, Mairi was engaging and well prepared. The delegates unanimously loved her presentation, which was not only really interesting, funny and entertaining, but also very informative, and brought up new research that’s highly relevant for our practice and, potentially, our marketing.

I was impressed with the way Mairi laid out a wide body of knowledge in such a way that allowed the small group to pick up specifics and explore some topics in more detail. Altogether a very comfortable, educational, and insightful day. I would happily recommend.

Dr MacLeod gave a wonderful talk on a subject which overlapped the themes of the conference, and despite the brief that entertainment was the primary objective, she also included wonderful science related to our field of Assisted Reproductive Technology, but from an evolutionary biology point of view

Bert Stewart, Chief Embryologist
Reproductive Health Group

The sessions were a great grounding in some of the science behind gender imbalance and how this can play out in the Corporate world but also our personal lives… Mairi was really informative and engaging as a speaker with a relaxed style who spoke about an already much debated topic from a different perspective.

Mairi perfectly blends current scientific thinking and humour into a truly entertaining and educational experience.

Mairi was highly engaging and encouraged an interactive session where the audience felt invigorated to make a difference in empowering women in their various workplaces in the banking and finance industry.

I would recommend Mairi as a public speaker and thinker who has the rare capability of demystifying complex subjects whilst putting the room at ease with them.

Mairi is engaging, amusing and fascinating and has such a wealth of knowledge. She seems able to adapt her talks to be relevant and interesting to many different audiences.

Mairi spoke for Enterprise Nation at Festival of Female Entrepreneurs in June 2019. Her presentation got the whole room of 200+ guests thinking .. laughing .. and pondering what next. Mairi is a very considered speaker. She clearly does her preparation – on who is the audience and what they’re after. If you’re looking for someone to inform and entertain, Mairi is your lady!

Emma Jones

It was great to have Mairi come into Edinburgh Business School to talk to students. She contributed presentations on diversity and equality in my classes on Leadership and Entrepreneurship. Most often, diversity is studied through a social lens, and Mairi’s addition of exploring these things from an evolutionary perspective was a brilliant complement. How we got here and why are key considerations in terms of how we approach gender and other diversity and equality agendas, not the least in terms of using what we know to develop and support people so that both individual and organisation may feel the benefits. Mairi’s style is thoughtful and very engaging and I highly recommend her services and support.
