TESTIMONIALS

The feedback evaluations stated that [your presentation] was integral to furthering their understanding of mental illness and workplace mental health support… Your presentation style was genuine, thoughtful and profound. I look forward to working with you again!

 

Cath – SANE Australia

She was excellent. Relevant, appropriate, energetic, positive and cheerful. We all enjoyed the manner in which she informed us about such a serious subject.

 

Mick Mitchell – Teacher, Living Waters Highschool

I found Bronwyn to be insightful, engaging and so relevant to our young students…And, the feedback I have had from students has been really positive: a number of them seeking support/information regarding their own experiences or concerns for friends. I hope that we can invite Bronwyn back in the near future.

 

Sally Stott – Counsellor, Mater Dei College

Your presentation was a perfect opening to our 2016 program. By describing how many different types of science all work together to achieve real-world outcomes, you set the theme for the program where this aspect kept returning to the discussion, and I referred to your talk more than once at later stages…It was truly an asset to have you involved.

 

Megan Ellyard – Senior Advisor, Student Experience, University of Western Australia

I would like to thank the Black Dog Institute for providing us with such an enthusiastic, honest and accomplished speaker this afternoon… I know Bronwyn’s presentation was appreciated by all.

 

Senior Librarian, Spearwood Library

Bronwyn’s charismatic style and display of raw emotion had the audience transfixed. We experienced both heartbreak and joy as she shared her journey with us.

 

Kyley Felix – Verbivores Toastmaster Club

Bronwyn was great. She was enjoyable, insightful, and inspired me to embrace challenges, learn from setbacks, and keep focused on achieving goals!

 

Participant, John Curtin Leadership Program

[Our fundraising] event was a huge success…Without you, that event would not have been as fabulous, thank you for bringing your determination and motivation to it.

 

 

Elody Boneyd – Polytechnic West Bentley

Your presentation was incredibly engaging, and kept moving at a pace that maintained the students’ attention throughout. There is no doubt in my mind that you inspired some young people to become budding scientists with your presentation.
