"We invited Nina to participate as a panellist to discuss the experiences of menopause for Black Women, at our conference for Black Female Professionals and Allies. . Her level of preparation and expertise truly stood out, leaving a lasting impression on everyone in the audience. Nina demonstrated an exceptional depth of knowledge on the subject, presenting the latest insights and research with clarity and confidence. Her ability to translate complex information into practical, actionable steps was remarkable."
"Nina brought a wealth of knowledge and an engaging speaking style. Her presentation was not only informative but importantly, she opened up the conversation about a topic that is often brushed under the rug, creating a safe and welcoming environment for discussion. She debunked myths, clarified how intersectionality plays such a huge part in people's menopause experiences, and provided practical solutions for employers, colleagues and family/friends. Her insights and real-life examples made our people feel comfortable continuing the conversation after the session finished."
"We could listen to Nina talk Menopause all day! We can't thank her enough for taking part in our recent NHS Menopause Hub Lunch and Learn week. She provided us with such interesting insight and knowledge into experiencing Menopause as a Black woman and those that attended got so much from the session. It's such important work that Nina is doing, and we are looking forward to working with her closely in the future to help support our colleagues across the NHS. Thank you for sowing such wonderful Meno seeds."

"I was fascinated by Nina's talk which really helped me to understand some of the additional challenges faced by black women who are experiencing the menopause. Her description of the significance of the scarcity of black role models in the UK, particularly resonated with me. Her address was clear, insightful, well-illustrated and relatable."
"Thank you for such a powerful and thought-provoking presentation. You genuinely taught me a lot and opened my eyes to my own ignorance."
