“Thank you again for a fantastic keynote on Friday. It was absolutely perfect. Content rich but with some humour to keep us all sane.
There was a great buzz in the room, and everyone has been telling us it was the best International Women’s Day event in a long time.”
“Jane was fabulous. She engaged the group so well and they were raving about her. Some of the participant’s feedback was:
- Great guest speaker!
- Today was good, really taught me lots about inner confidence
- Jane was super inspiring and I learnt a lot about talking small steps to making big changes
- I loved her confidence!”
‘” had the pleasure of working with Jane recently at the QTU’s women’s conference. Jane was fantastic at both events, and a real highlight for the participants. She has the capacity to tailor her work to the audience, speak to a diverse audience and convey her message in a way that is energising and thought provoking. We were really thrilled to connect with Jane.”
