On behalf of the delegates that attended our annual national convention last week. We were blown away with Brooke Hanson’s positive energy, courage & inspirational message that she delivered. The feedback we have received from our people has been overwhelming and the highest praise we have received from a keynote speaker in recent years. The take home messages were delivered with passion, enthusiasm, humour & professionalism. I would highly recommend any company or group wanting to empower & inspire their people to engage Brooke as a key note speaker. A 10/10 performance for content & delivery.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the effort and passion you brought with you to our event. It was so well received that when people were asked what the highlight of the conference was for them, you were mentioned several times with everyone being in agreement, thank you very much Brooke.
Looking past the success, the medals and the fame, Brooke's shares the normally unspoken and painful parts of her life. Her heart of gold shines through as a beacon of enthusiasm, deep care and what can be possible.
I'm so glad I had the chance to hear Brooke Hanson’s story at the conference this week. Wow. Thank you Brooke Hanson for being so authentic, and sharing the highs and lows, it was very moving.
Brooke's story inspires, captures your attention, then breaks your heart to focus on what's really important in life... If you're not a better person from hearing Brook speak you aren't human.
I did wonder what inspiration I could take from an Olympic Swimmer, but my phone is full of screenshots from your talk and my notepad full of notes on how I can change & improve myself at work, in life & at home. You are an incredible woman - as a young mum myself your story brought me to tears but what an inspiration you are.
