Female presentation skills AKICOLJ

Can anyone suggest some examples of women who are probably quite introverted (or at least quiet), who have good presentation skills?

(Ideally, supply links to YouTube clips!)

Context: I gave a presentation skills course yesterday, and used some examples of different styles of presentation, and - and this hadn't occurred to me before a female participant pointed it out - all my examples were male. This particular participant self-desctribed herself as an introvert, so I'd like to find some good presentation models for her. The best we could come up with on the day were Hilary Clinton, Fiona Bruce and Teresa May.

I think the historian Bettany Hughes* is a good presenter:

* Better than Mary Beard in the ranks of TV historians. Beard is more famous, and a more eminent academic, but I find her gurning TV style distracting, a bit like Phil from Time Team (to whom she bears a remarkable resemblance).
