Katie Hibbs, NYSCB Child Sexual Exploitation Project Lead

I first became aware of Adele’s work when she spoke at a conference I attended in Wakefield early in 2015. I was incredibly impressed by her delivery style & the way she engages the audience in a particularly difficult topic area.

She has a calm & assured manner which facilitates the delivery of, at times, uncomfortable & challenging information, & I was keen to engage her in work with North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board.

I commissioned Adele to speak at our annual NYSCB CSE Conference in March 2015, & she did not disappoint. She ensured I had a preview of her material for delivery on the day, checked it met the desired aims & objectives required and was a consummate professional throughout my interactions with her.

Described by delegates attending as:

  • An inspirational speaker
  • Good presentation from Adele….made me think of importance of multi-agency working
  • Adele has made me ask “why?”…consider the consent aspect, the fact they will say it’s their own choice
  • Second speaker [Adele] really interesting & knowledgeable
  • Excellent & very important presentation
  • Speaker…..excellent…so informed & genuinely feel ‘enlightened’ & better able to do my job

I would work with Adele again in a heartbeat – quality, quality, quality!
