“I was gobsmacked! The room was set up in a manner that was welcoming and friendly, tables prepared with iced water and mints. Jodie was there to greet each of us as we entered, her friendly demeanor made us all feel very comfortable and welcomed. Jodie wasn’t your typical ‘corporate’ style presenter, if anything she presented as one of us and I liked that. Jodie’s style of presenting was calm and controlled, she listened intently as we shared our individual fears of presenting to an audience and reassured us all that at the end of the day, we would have the tools needed to overcome those fears. But I was still frightened, my heart raced as it approached my turn to present…I stood on the star in the middle of the room….I could hear my own heartbeat in my ear…but I took a deep breath and whispered to myself ‘You’ve got this’ I put in place everything that Jodie had taught us that day…and NAILED it! – The only thing to fear is fear itself. Thank you for your wisdom Jodie and for sharing your knowledge – you are a true inspiration.”

Eddie Boyle, Strategic Manager. Warrigal

“Attending Jodie’s public speaking course opened up unexpected opportunities. I not only learnt techniques for public speaking, I was able to transfer skills into 1:1 conversations. Jodie made a very daunting course, comfortable and safe environment. Thanks Jodie!”

“Jodie was amazing in helping me get ready for pitching! Her support and coaching in getting my ideas from thought to paper then get them structured led to us winning our pitching contest. What she taught me now forms the foundation of how I approach pitching, and, putting ideas to paper.”

Chris Magiri, Founder. GenSpeak

“Jodie is a fantastic coach and trainer. Jodie recently helped to prepare for a presentation for a conference and I don’t know that I could have done it without her.  She really helped me to break done the concepts into simple chunks, explain my story well and helped me to speak confidentially at the conference.”

Danica Vujic, Executive Assistant. Peoplecare

Having recently participated in the Public Speaking Workshop at UOW, it gave me an introduction to the skills and the courage to put what I learnt into practice with opportunities to speak in front of two audiences so far. Jodie’s sound knowledge and her personality were so beneficial to me and how I participated.”

Debbie Critcher, Student Services Officer. University of Wollongong

“Jodie is amazing. She has inspired me to be a better person and to look at things differently. She is incredibly authentic and a lovely person.She walks the walk and doesn’t come in to your organisation and tell you what to do. She shows you the way. I would recommend Jodie for whatever you need help with.”

Tracey Wilson, University of Wollongong

“I started coaching sessions with Jodie for a bit of help with public speaking but our sessions quickly turned into what I can only describe as the best soul searching, growth and development coaching I could have ever dreamed of. Jodie goes above and beyond and is so well educated in her field of positive psychology and mindset that she was able to give me tools to initiate life-long change that I can apply to all areas of my life. She really has changed my outlook on life and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.”

Debbie Bruce, Owner. Get Active Health Solutions

“I loved the speaking workshop that Jodie facilitated. It exceeded all expectations and I learnt so much in the process about not only myself, but my presentation style and the theory behind presenting and positive psychology. Thank you so much for making it such a positive journey. I now look at presenting in a totally different light and look forward to presenting in the near future. I would highly recommend Jodie’s workshop to anyone who would like to learn to be a better presenter.”

Eloise, University of Wollongong

“Public speaking is no ones favorite thing so I was nervous and unsure of what would be expected of me. I was pleasantly surprised. Jodie made it a safe and supportive environment and we were given permission to try and fail, but we all succeeded. It was a great experience and I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone. There is a sneaky bit of personal growth here so its worthwhile on so many levels.”

Tracey Wilson. University of Wollongong

“We have had so much positive feedback from everyone who attended. We all learnt so much and the participants all feel so much better equipped to speak and give presentations.”
