what others are saying
Meg presented at our Staff Wellbeing Professional Learning Day.
“Having listened to Meg’s podcast and connecting with her, I was excited for our staff to hear Meg’s wisdom and strategies on how we can all look after ourselves, and she did not disappoint. From the get go, Meg connected magnetically with our staff and her sense of humour, wit and ability to understand exactly what we are feeling and experiencing was not only a wake up call but refreshing. Meg cut through the nonsense and gave us practical strategies on how we can better our wellbeing in small steps. In just 1 hour, Meg was able to challenge our thinking and help us to reflect on the why’s and how’s of personal wellbeing and many of our staff walked away already setting personal and collective goals.”

We opened our school year with Meg as our guest speaker.
“Staff Wellbeing is a focus for us as it is for most organisations. I did not want the advice around staff wellbeing to be about tokenistic gestures, but rather being led to understand how we can care for ourselves and what stops us from not doing this, even though most of us know what we should be doing. Meg was brilliant at challenging our habits of thinking or the default position we go to which prevents us from moving forward. Personally, I felt that she had almost read me (and my excuses) in a context which was so human and understanding. Others felt the same way. Her presentation was humorous, backed by solid research, and had a powerful impact on the staff. This week as we automatically started to say and do our usual things and go into our usual habits, I have heard people pull themselves up and laughingly quote her to challenge themselves and each other to move to more positive, productive and less toxic habits and behaviours.”

Meg is an excellent speaker and presenter, with a very realistic approach and outlook.
“Meg's presentation was engaging and allowed time for reflecting, thinking and sharing. She spoke in a way that was inclusive of all and did not focus solely on teaching staff. Meg gave us a lot of food for thought and the feedback from teaching and non-teaching staff has been extremely positive, with people referencing Meg's words, quotes and anecdotes since her day with us at Santa Maria. Staff were grateful for the opportunity to work with Meg and to be introduced to Meg's podcasts, too.”

Meg presented to 70 of our primary school staff, initiating a staff wellbeing strategy.
"Her ability to provide critical information and facts regarding the topic of wellbeing, through engaging narrative and in a relatable way, is outstanding. Her presentation was dynamic; moving staff through light hearted ownership of our strengths and challenges, into the critical importance of the impact healthy wellbeing practices can have on our personal, professional and relational selves. As a school principal seeking to initiate a whole of staff strategy, I couldn't have asked for the initial presentation to go better."

Meg’s passion for walking with our educators through the challenges of caring for our wellbeing was outstanding.
"Her years of experience supporting educators in many different contexts which has given her numerous first hand stories she has lived, gives her an insightful knowledge and understanding of wellbeing in schools, which strengthens her genuine warm connection that inspire educators to want to learn more. Meg’s presentation on wellbeing for our school leaders was engaging, real, impactful, fun and timely for educators who continue to face growing challenges of self-care, as the need for connection and care for young people in schools grows."
