Our presentation night was a huge success due to Michelle’s contribution. We had planned Michelle to speak for about half an hour. As we had a quiet time between courses and she came over to volunteered to fill in for some more time. the audience with a delightful energetic and inspirational talk over the night. She is a very enthusiastic speaker who’s passion shines through and I believe it is very contagious. If the people in the room did not enjoy her talk then they must have been asleep. I noticed when she reached the key points in her address, people in the audience were nodding at each point, especially my boss. On the behalf of ALCOA to publically say that she was one of the best that we have had the pleasure of listening too.
