“We recently asked Mairi to speak at a symposium and she was hugely well received! The feedback from our delegates was very positive and everyone thoroughly enjoyed her talk. She is engaging, amusing and fascinating and has such a wealth of knowledge. She seems able to adapt her talks to be relevant and interesting to many different audiences.”

“Mairi’s talk at our Congress Dinner was excellent – factual yet entertaining and pitched at just the right level for the audience. Our delegates thoroughly enjoyed it. As the organiser I found Mairi very approachable, knowledgeable and easy to deal with and would highly recommend her.”
Annette Eckersley, Centre for Reproductive Health
Organiser of 2nd International RHG Congress, October 2016
“I have long been a great fan on Dr Mairi MacLeod’s blogs on sexy science finding them both entertaining and informative. As part of the organising committee of an annual conference we hold at our Clinic, I suggested that Dr MacLeod was invited to give a presentation at the conference dinner.
Dr MacLeod gave a wonderful talk on a subject which overlapped the themes of the conference, and despite the brief that entertainment was the primary objective, she also included wonderful science related to our field of Assisted Reproductive Technology, but from an evolutionary biology point of view. The delegates were universally impressed and I highly recommend Dr MacLeod.”
Dr Bert Stewart, Head Embryologist, Reproductive Health Group, Centre for Reproductive Health.
“Mairi perfectly blends current scientific thinking and humour into a truly entertaining and educational experience. I’ve never been so intrigued to sniff those sat next to me rather than the food at dinner!”

“I would recommend Mairi as a public speaker and thinker who has the rare capability of demystifying complex subjects whilst putting the room at ease with them. Her research and approach to communicating her research is excellent and warm; it is also much needed in this time where people need to find more positive affirmations about human relationships. ”
