Wow! … what a fabulous treat to hear Michelle Bridges speak today. The subject of diet and exercise is sometimes seen as dry & unrealistic, yet Michelle was inspirational and motivating and most of all, her tips were achievable! The health and well-being of our employees is a major business priority for the firm and our clients, and seeing Michelle so energised and passionate about what she does is further motivation to put her advice into practice.
We were very excited to secure Michelle as our special guest for the Brisbane Fitness and Health Expo and the results were amazing. For the entire duration of the Expo, Michelle signed autographs, had her photo taken and met literally thousands of her fans. There is no doubt that many Expo visitors just came to the event to see and meet Michelle. We were extremely pleased with the results and look forward to having Michelle involved in future events. One thing is for sure – Michelle can pull a crowd!
