Anne's presentation was intriguing, touching, personal, refreshing, surprising and energising all in one. She challenged the conference attendees to look outside their own square, seeking barriers to change within themselves. I will never forget Anne's memorable words and presentation - she is amazing. I cannot recommend Anne Riches highly enough to any industry in any situation - she knew very little of our industry when we first met but you would never have known with such a well prepared and delivered presentation.
