"I really enjoyed the case study approach. This really enables the reader to be in the shoes of a deaf person. The reference to the London bombings, for me, was particularly poignant. I also thought the example of being left on the platform following a platform alteration also highlighted the importance of awareness."
“Don’t Silence your Talent gives you a great insight into what it really takes to become Deaf Aware as an individual and as an organisation. The case studies really put this into perspective making you think about how you can make adaptions and changes to the way you communicate”
“This is the book I wish had been available a year ago when I was Chief People Officer of a global consulting company struggling to meet the needs of a deaf employee. Victoria combines powerful story-telling with practical advice on how to make businesses more human and more inclusive for employees who are deaf or hard of hearing. (...) The lessons will help leaders, managers and colleagues build a more inclusive workplace for all.”
“It was a really interesting read, and really gave me a lot to think about. The real life examples were really insightful and the tips were extremely helpful in terms of things to do and what to avoid.

"'Don't silence your talent' is everything you need to engage with, develop and grow your hard of hearing and deaf team members, and it removes the burden of them needing to educate you. The best thing about this book is its practical nature. It's informative and useful, rarely do these things always come together in one book. I'd urge any Manager or Leader to invest time in this book, and do it with a notepad to hand and lots of post-it notes! You will be inspired to do better, to do good and best of all, to know where to start and what happens next. This book should be mandatory reading for all Senior Leadership Teams and for all first time Line Managers. Simply brilliant and much needed."
