Words escape me to truly express my thanks for the amazing journey you took us all on today as the keynote speaker at the HR Teams event in Sydney and the roller coast ride of emotions you evoked in us all. I feel incredibly humbled and honoured to have met you and want you to know how much you touched everyone in the room today (myself included) with your warmth, passion, incredible spirit and courage in the face of such adversity. The room was charged full of raw energy and emotion when you finished and many members commented to me afterwards how incredibly inspirational you were and how powerful your messages, learning's and insights were. My congratulations. I feel very privileged to have met you and wish you well on your continued inspirational journey.
