Cowell Clarke's general feedback is that we where absolutely thrilled to have Isobel and Eloise present to our clients. They did a wonderful job explaining their journey and addressing the whole purpose behind their start-up. We really appreciated the positive feedback in relation to Megan's work with TABOO and how it has been a pleasurable experience. Guest feedback = they were overwhelmed and in awe of Isobel and Eloise. Everyone had a wonderful time and definitely weren't afraid to talk openly about menstruation on the night! Well done girls.
