"Flynn's talks (those I have attended include one on social justice and one on the impact of rapidly developing artificial intelligence) are accessible yet intellectual, and deeply energizing and engaging. She brings her topics to life for the audience with humor, empathy, and an array of references to current events, history, and arts and culture. Some in the audiences I was part of were already knowledgeable about the topics, and some were new to the ideas she presented, but she brought new perspectives on the issues for everyone. She is a creative thinker who helps her audience challenge their assumptions and share her passion and curiosity." - G.C.

She has an endless store of energy and insights to share, which is picked up by everyone else in the room. She also has a remarkable ability to bring people together--in the talk I attended, she found the commonalities among our disparate backgrounds and professional interests and facilitated an incredible exchange of thoughts and experiences between us. It was inspiring and energizing both on personal and professional levels." - Genevieve
