Teachers commented about the suitability of Maggie’s material, her engaging approach, and the ways Maggie helped this group of just under 200 children begin to develop an awareness about some of the ways marketers target children to cultivate product dependency.

—R. Bourchier, Mooroolbark Umbrella Community Group, Nov 2013

Maggie is one of those rare individuals who combines charisma, knowledge and character; her messages are very clear and compelling; they come from a place of  respect for men and women. In a standing room only turnout for her talks, the feedback from both men and women has been overwhelmingly positive.

—Varvara Ioannou, Employee Health and Wellbeing Program Manager, Australia Post
