We loved Safiya's visit to our campus! In addition to her campus wide talk, she participated in faculty discussion groups and the response was overwhelmingly positive. At dinner, she spoke about her experiences as a junior faculty member, and people truly responded to her open, honest, and generous style.

I have worked with many agencies to book guest speakers over the past 5 years. My experience with AAE has been the best. The website, search facilitation software, and speaker briefs were great. The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
