Ingrid's talks are better described as experiences that take audiences on a mind-blowing journey. Customised to meet your goals, they include awesome slides and fun, whole audience participation to demonstrate key points. Her talks empower primarily women to not to see themselves stereotypically, but rather, to express themselves fully and influence change.
"I am a woman, a woman of colour and a single mother. The stereotypes state that as a black single mother from South East London that I should be written off. Yet, when my son was just a wee toddler, it was when I was at my most successful with properties and a thriving business in prestigious Islington. Nonetheless, for over forty years there was still one stereotype I was unable to shake which broke my confidence and took me to the brink of insanity. I eventually broke its impact though simply getting badass. I now empower others to get badass too, that is, to not see themselves as a stereotype, but rather, to discover their authentic voices and positively impact the world."

Talk on Unconscious Bias in Artificial IntellegenceI:"Always love listening to the wonderful Ingrid Marsh"— Robert McCargow, PWC, Artificial Intelligence Programme Leader and the 38th most influential person in the world in AI.
Talk on Unconscious Bias in AI at Tech for good:"Hello. Just wanted to say thank you for the talk on Monday. It has certainly got us thinking about the unconscious bias that might exist in the work we do. We spend a lot of time trying to avoid personal bias, that's important for great design but I've never really considered there might be a gender, race, social bias lurking within the design patterns we choose. it's helpful to be reminded where our blind spots might be. Thanks again.
