Harriet is a rare speaker in that she is an accomplished author, journalist, and teacher, but she is also a passionate mother and advocate for patients and families working with eating disorders. With an easygoing demeanor, flexible speaking style, and multiple topics with which to engage her audience, Harriet’s message resonated on many levels. She was a pleasure to work with, and her presentation made a lasting impression not only on the students, teachers and community members to whom she presented, but most significantly with clinicians.
Harriet Brown’s ability to connect with diverse audiences is amazing.
Harriet Brown is a fantastic speaker. Throughout her talk, she provides a good balance between personal experience/insight and scientific research. Her approach is sincere, well-spoken, and direct. Her message was well received by the variety of people in our audience: community members, parents, college students, and survivors. The talk was truly interactive with a dynamic question/answer period with she handled with professional composure and a personal touch. We were thrilled.
She did a good job of mixing in the personal and the political. Her story helped put a face on a very real problem in America. My students learned a good deal.
