What people are saying
Thank you very much for arranging Rebecca to speak at our High Tea. You were right - she was perfect! Her talk appealed to both the girls and the mums which isn't an easy thing to do. Rebecca targeted her speech perfectly - the humour had us all laughing and her insights into teenage life were very relevant. I had a lot of very positive feedback from people who attended our high tea.
Thank you for inspiring our students to read, write and be kind. Thanks again for an awesome week of talks and workshops.
Irena is a wonderful woman. At all times she was co-operative and willing to contribute her time and talent for the service of others. Her attitude and presentation were always first class. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Irena as an Artist-in Residence
The workshop was engaging and the boys were immediately hands-on.
I asked for recommendations of presenters in my area and received a detailed and informative response that reflected how well Speakers Ink know their presenters.
Paula’s presentation was greatly appreciated by participants, who found it very inspiring and useful.
CPS loved having Nadia Sundae visit. She kept the kids very entertained and the content was age appropriate. Nadia knows kids well and so gave a balanced performance - fun but maintaining control of the audience who can be excitable. Nadia was careful when talking about childhood imagination and mentioned controlling your imagination to not let fear take over or imagination to be distracting. We would love to have the wonderful Nadia in the future. Thank-you for your quality performance.
Our children were fascinated by the methods Chrissy wrote, illustrated and published her magical picture book. At each stage of her journey in her presentation a child opened a surprise sparkly box. They saw first-hand examples of the material she used in her beautiful illustrations. Their interest was captured by an insight into her creativity and her encouragement to work at what they loved to do, no matter what hurdles they met on the way.
Kerry interacted well with students. She structured the hour with each group well. She was engaging and shared her skills. Her programme was age appropriate and well received. I would definitely recommend Kerry to other schools.
An excellent day. Such a great experience for students to get writing, and to receive instant feedback on their work. Phillip’s insights and presentation were very helpful – it is so good for students to hear directly from a professional author! I also came away inspired to get writing!
Deb was a very engaging speaker and performer. The children really enjoyed the visit and have been madly borrowing her books. Deb pitched her talk to each year level and managed to have everyone laughing and learning at their level - including the teachers.
I highly recommend Maria as a speaker. Our students found her presentation interesting and engaging, and I was impressed with the way Maria held their attention throughout.
