I worked with Alysia to produce a number of different masterclasses at BAFTA. She appeared at various BAFTA events as both Host, Speaker and Personality. Alysia always brought fantastic insight, energy and empathy to every appearance and I would highly recommend her for a wide range of speaking engagements. She was a complete professional, cool throughout any chaos and cleverly matched the energy of the room."

I was introduced to Alysia when searching for speakers for Yorkshire Games Festival 2020 who could really connect with our young audience of aspiring game makers. Alysia gave a brilliant talk on how to talk to the games media and also chaired an insightful discussion about responsibility in children’s video game play. Alysia was a joy to work with; engaged, professional and super-efficient. I hope this year’s festival was the start of a long term relationship.
