Ashleigh came and spoke to the Woodside Finance Function on our Personal Development Day and was amazing! Even though talking to a room full of accountants, Ashleigh connected with the audience straight up and tailored her speech so that it was relevant and motivating to the group. Ashleigh had everyone’s full attention for the entire speech and was happy to stay around and answer questions afterwards. Thank you for such an interesting and inspiring delivery – Kylie Ditchburn, Woodside Finance

Thanks so much for coming and visiting our school. You had the children captivated by your stories. They really understood the message of hard work paying off, and that everyone goes through struggles, hard times and disappointments, but it’s how they pick themselves up from it.
After your visit, we continued our work, not only on information reports (in which they studied you), but also our health for the entire term related to your visit. Healthy eating/exercise and active lifestyles, importance of setting goals and the importance of being resilient.
Also, they loved getting to hold your medals – as did the support staff and myself. A real once in a lifetime opportunity. – Tara Browning, Huntingdale Primary School

It was universally agreed that your speech was excellent – entertaining, humorous, well pitched, suitable for audience and thought provoking for all in attendance. Very inspiring for our graduates.- International School of WA
