Testimonials

Ashley Fox is one of the more compelling, thoughtful, and effective speakers I have come across during more than 25 years as the Head of School at Shipley. Blessed with a great mind, a big heart, and many wonderful stories, she has the ability to hold an audience and to deliver important messages for people to think about. We saw this first-hand when she joined Dr. Jim Loehr, well renowned psychologist and best-selling author; Molly Fletcher, author, speaker, former sports agent; Pat Croce, former owner of the 76ers; and Paul Assaiante, world renowned squash coach, pro, and author on stage here at Shipley. She captured the audience in an extraordinarily special way. Her ability to deliver important messages with humor, understanding, and compassion was noticed by everyone who was in the room. Incredibly down to earth and committed, she is able to meet her audience where they are and to move them accordingly. In addition to liking Ashley a great deal, I have great admiration and respect for her and I look forward to hearing her speak again soon.

Steve Pilch

Head of School – The Shipley School

Having known Ashley professionally and personally for over a decade, I have consistently found her to be extremely professional, full of integrity and dedicated to her craft. I’ve seen firsthand her ability to engage audiences during her speeches. Her message on building and nurturing relationships, overcoming obstacles and succeeding as a female in a male-dominated profession has consistently received rave reviews from her audiences. I look forward to hearing her present again, and highly recommend her as a speaker.

Former VP Packers, Former ESPN Business and Legal Analyst, Columnist, Sports Illustrated

I’ve known Ashley Fox since she became a regular on the Philadelphia Eagles beat a decade and a half ago. It was a team that I was very close with, albeit from a distance. I often relied on Ashley’s eyes, ears and, most importantly, her written words for daily information, although she didn’t know it. She quickly built a reputation for being accurate, fair and honest — even if that truth at times ruffled some feathers. I got to appreciate her first hand when she joined our ESPN team in 2011. Ashley has succeeded in an arena where many others in her shoes would have failed miserably. Her words of wisdom are beneficial on many fronts.

Chris Berman

Former long-time ESPN NFL Countdown host

Ashley Fox has earned my respect over the last 15 years. We met when she started covering the Philadelphia Eagles in 2003, and her inner toughness to thrive in the competitive Philadelphia media market caught my attention. She worked her way to the top of her profession by having an uncanny ability to feel and understand her subjects. I grew to trust Ashley with information I would not share with others. The process to trust took time. I’m a hard one to break; a bit stubborn at times. Her persistence, timing and preparedness for the topic were important qualities. Ashley is one of the few people that I have met that makes you feel like anything she tries she will be the best at.
