Kind words and praise from audience members and organisors

Bronwyn’s story is a source of inspiration. She is insightful, energetic but most importantly down-to-heart. Throughout the presentation I have felt engaged and inspired by her message to reduce stigma around mental health in today’s society. She is an outstanding public speaker and a committed leader who works to bring positive social impact to the world.

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.

Thank you once again for your very engaging presentation. You truly are an amazing public speaker! I really liked how you spoke about the emergence of symptoms, the diagnosis, the treatment and how the strategies you’ve learned through CBT have enriched your recovery.

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.

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!

Having worked with Bronwyn previously, I knew her energy and inspiring story would be perfect to engage with our audience at our youth award ceremony. She shared with our audience of young people and their parents her remarkable journey as a young person through a personal battle with body image issues and anorexia and her ability to overcome this. Her capacity to tie this into highlighting the importance of setting achievable and clear goals was particularly beneficial.

Bronwyn was part of the inaugural TEDxUWA Conference line-up. Her presentation was highly successful and she kept a wide variety of audience members engaged… Hearing her speak, it was clear she has talent in public speaking and a passion for mental health. Her talk was truly from the heart and viewers appreciated that. On behalf of the TEDxUWA team it was an absolute pleasure to work with Bronwyn.

Your presentation was incredibly engaging, and kept moving at a pace that maintained the students’ attention throughout. Your ability to enthusiastically share how your chosen area of science (Psychology) applies to such a variety of real-world applications was truly remarkable. There is no doubt in my mind that you inspired some young people to become budding scientists with your presentation.
