"On behalf of Breast Cancer Network
NZ I would like to warmly thank you for the excellent contribution
you made as a keynote speaker and workshop presenter. We were
truly blessed with speakers like yourself who are leaders
in their respective fields and were able to tailor the presentations
to the audience with great skill and humour."
Dell Gee, Conference Organising Committee, 1st NZ National
Breast Cancer Conference 2007
I present to small gatherings and to very
large audiences at major conferences. My talks are always
tailored for the purpose and range from informal and conversational,
to more formal addresses, including keynotes. To March 2014
I had presented to over 18,000 people in New Zealand, Australia
I speak without charge for my time for not-for-profit
organisations, mostly to groups of people affected by cancer.
I have developed a number of one-hour presentations on topics
such as coping with a cancer encounter, building a healing
team around you, and coping with the life-after-cancer experience.
All my presentations have been well received time and again.
I also present to cancer support and medical
professionals on the many challenges of the patient experience,
helping them understand this better so as to provide an even
more effective and empathic service to their patients. I have
a one-hour presentation on the value of psychosocial support
for cancer patients for instance, which has proved of
value to such professionals.
I speak for cancer patient support organisations
at or leading to their fundraising events and to promote their
causes in all media. If it helps support people facing cancer,
I'm supportive of it! Contact me to discuss involving me in
your forum anywhere in the world.
"Thank you for presenting to the
second breakfast lecture in the Hospice NZ Genesis Oncology
Trust 2007 series
We are pleased to let you know that
the evaluations have been overwhelmingly positive and complimentary.
You are an excellent presenter
