What Are People saying about our speakers?

I wasn't sure what to expect; however, my expectations were not only met - they were exceeded. Each speaker shared their very personal journey with so much authenticity.

N Hewitt

What a wonderful, uplifting day! I took so many brilliant insights and gems of wisdom away from the diverse range of speaker, I wouldn't even be able to pick a favourite. I cannot wait for more events like this in Newcastle.

B Smyth

What a great event. Such high quality speakers with inspirational stories that exceeded all my expectations. Thank you to all that spoke and brought the event together. Look forward to the next event.

M O'Shea

Bernie and Justin, saying thank you just isn't enough. I am ever so grateful that I had the opportunity of attending Awareness to Grow yesterday. The calibre of speakers was second to none, it was an incredibly inspiring day that I'll never forget. I can now hand on heart say that I feel assured and empowered to be the person I want to be. Thank you!!

J Ross

I didn't know what to expect when I registered for the event however afterwards I felt reenergised, refocused & inspired. All of the speakers had great stories to tell of how they overcame some type of adversity(apart from Alex McKinnon who is still challenged) & the choices they made to create something that makes a difference in someone else's life. The speakers openly shared their experiences in a safe environment often displaying their vulnerability but in a way that made their messages more honest for the audience. The speakers provided us with inspiring messages about focus & desire to change their world & challenge others along the way. It was a great day & congratulations to Bernie on achieving his dream to hold this event & allowing the delegates to share his vision.

J Garis

Awesome event. Didn't know what to expect but as a young person searching for clarity professionally and personally I left with plenty of tools to tackle the future!
