Andrea Callender, Inclusion & Diversity Director, Alexander McQueen
Max is widely recognised as a trusted expert who wants to help companies to understand and welcome LGBTQIA+ people as employees, service users and customers.
They did a fantastic session for us as part of Pride Month where they shared very valuable insights from their personal experience. We got so much positive feedback from our employees about how safe and seen Max made them feel. Also about how included, they felt by us inviting Max in to share and inspire us. They are a great speaker.
Natalie Ho, Global Director, Learning & Development, Diversity & Inclusion, Clarks
The most significant work Max has collaboratively driven with our team, was our LGBTQ+ Internal Panel, where we invited internal speakers to participate, discuss and bring awareness to this specific topic. We had not run anything like this internally in the past, and not on such an important topic. As such, we wanted to make sure we had someone that had the experience and gravitas to lead the conversation amongst our guest. With that, we invited Max to be our guest and host for the session.
Max was incredibly proactive and provided support and comfort to our internal panellists, but also went above and beyond to extend support to not just myself, but also the executive team and sponsors.
Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Saïd Business School
Max came to the University of Oxford, Saïd Business School, on 22nd February 2023, as the invited keynote speaker for the University’s Annual LGBT History month lecture.
Max’s lecture ‘A personal story of transition’ was delivered to a packed lecture room with a wide online audience. He spoke eloquently about trans history, his own lived experiences and the specific challenges and persecution which the community is unjustly facing today, and how individuals and organisations can step up and take action to address transphobia. Max was incredibly engaging, authentic and absolutely lovely to work with, I look forward to future collaborations!
