Testimonials for Bev Brock

I’ve had the privilege to experience Bev Brock’s public speaking abilities from both an audience, and co-speaker perspective on a number of occasions. Bev is a unique personality and her presence on stage instantly captures the audience’s attention. She always ensures that her presentations are tailored  to suit the theme or key messages for each event. Bev shares the messages from her life experiences with great passion and this makes her a highly engaging speaker and presenter.  She is terrific to work with and always goes the extra mile. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Bev Brock for any speaking engagement.

To be honest, I didn’t know who Bev Brock was. I’m not really a sports loving person, etc etc.... but I have to say, Bev got my attention for the entire time she spoke. To hear that tiny exert from her story, (a glimpse of what her life was like) and what she went through, and her highs & lows, was amazing, mesmerizing at times.

I think she captured everyone in that room, she was real, she wasn’t pretentious or egotistical. She never came across as someone who is out for fame money or fortune just because she was married to a “superstar’.

Her message of “listen to your body & take care of yourself”,,,, and if it’s not broken,,,, don’t try and fix it, I think resinated with everyone one way or another.

Amazing strong woman

Kind regards, Jude Nanopoulos Sales / Admin Manager MJM Australia Imports


Dear Bev, I was at your presentation today at Clayton Ladies Probus.  When I heard you were the speaker I was half-hearted as I thought it would be all about car racing.  How wrong can you get. I enjoyed every minute of your presentation and was sorry when it ended. Congratulations on the way you put your presentation together and the way it just flowed on from one part of your life to another.  I hope I get the opportunity to see you again.

Bev Brock's Biography

Bev Brock was born and raised in West Australia. She is a former teacher and partner of Peter Brock for 28 years, is a mother of three with three grandchildren.

 

At 21 years of age, devastatingly Bev broke her neck in a Water-Skiing accident.  With 2 crushed vertebrae in her neck and 5 damaged in her spine , the surgeons told Bev she would never be able to play sport or have children.  It was during this fragile time in her life that both her interest in health and well-being and her Herculean spirit developed and as you can see today, she has defied the prognosis of the “experts” to lead not just an active and healthy life, but also quite an extraordinary one.

 

Bev met Peter Brock while living in Sydney however moved to Melbourne with her son James to be with Peter where she undertook post graduate studies in Special Education. Robert and Alexandra were born to Bev and Peter within the next four years.

 

While Bev was raising her family she was also involved with Peter in his joint venture with Holden – Holden Dealer Team Special Vehicles and HDT Racing.  The company employed approx. 80 people and Bev for a while looked after the Human Resources & administrative requirements of the Company.

 

In 1997, Peter and Bev cofounded the Peter Brock Foundation which was administered by Bev and initially funded by Brock fans via membership subscriptions.  The foundation supported people in crisis who often ‘slipped through the net’ of larger charitable organizations. Bev closed this down several years ago.
