What people are saying
Andrea was a great speaker. She engaged her audiences, across multiple ages in each session. She was approachable, articulate and her content was appropriate for each group. On the lead up to the event, Andrea made contact and went out of her way to tailor her speeches to suit our themes and ethos. She was considerate and thoughtful. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a speaker.
What I think is important is that your ideas are successful with students and that you quickly engage them, they learn to trust your work, knowledge and feedback. I think your breakdown of teaching sequence is clear and easy to follow and you sell it in your presentations. The feedback from my Grade 5 class after today's workshop was very positive.
Everything was well organised and went to plan. James was an excellent speaker and engaged with all year levels. He was easy to work with and left some of his drawings for the school to display. I would recommend him to others.
Tony was a great hit with the students (at the Primary Taster Day) and they really enjoyed his workshops.
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.
Paula’s presentation was greatly appreciated by participants, who found it very inspiring and useful.
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.
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!
Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful talk. You made Figgy come to life for the students and really put the issues facing children of Ghana into context. Your talk really inspired and motivated the students to write their own stories based on the courageous characters in your books.
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.
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.
