"Zoya Patel completely nails her hosting role. The other panellists are fantastic too, but it’s her focus and tenacity as a moderator that helps them shine."

"I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your workshop. I learned much about the mysteries of developing a unique social media identity, thanks in large part to your gift for creating a warm atmosphere for easy conversation."

- Dr Skye Saunders, workshop participant, 2017

"Working with Zoya has been a wonderful experience.  My book is so much better because of her guidance. She gave me excellent, clear feedback and suggestions that pushed me to go further. Her suggestions as to how to move forward with publication are helpful and of course I am now hoping for a positive outcome and that the world out there will get to read the book we have both worked on."

- Mary Powell, editing client, 2017
