Client Feedback

My gosh! The journey you took us on was such an inspiration! The metaphors that were presented between the ocean and life were so real and true. You delivered your talk with such humility and how you turned your passion into something that you could give back is really a lesson for all. Also loved watching your strokes under the water as I have taken up swimming in the last year, not ocean yet :)   Shani Judes, organizer – Wavescape Slide Night

I was engrossed and simply loved your talk.  I was sitting listening to your determination, your “self” wanting to achieve, your personal enjoyments, the ego, your disappointments in failure, your achievements, and yet you spoke of the lack of feeling fulfillment…. until the LITTLE FIGHTERS cancer trust came into the equation, and you found meaning of contribution to what you do. Thank you so much. It made a profound impact on my thought processes.  And by the way, your two little girls are so pretty, so precious! Go well special lady. You are an inspiration indeed!  Natalie Wittwen – The School of Lifestyle Medicine

What an eye opener; everyone just loved your talk!  And your timing is simply impeccable.  Thanks again.  Ross Johnson - St Cyprian's School
