Jesse’s visit went really well – it was the first time we have really organised anything like that and we’ve had repeat calls for more!
The delivery of Jesse’s speech at the NSW Ambulance Graduation was a whole bunch of things – amazing, brave and compelling, just to mention a few. Jesse certainly delivered a speech that so many of staff and audience could relate to both personally and professionally. So thank you Jesse once again for your time on our special day.
Thanks for the talk for Carers NSW at Randwick Town Hall. Takes great courage to stand up and talk about such personal issues as there are a lot of people out there that need a lot of help and you are providing a great role in fulfilling that – keep up the good work.
