Testimonials for Yumi Stynes

Yumi was absolutely exceptional.  Her audience were year 11 and 12 students - you could have heard a pin drop throughout the session - Yumi was powerful, direct , completely appropriate and moving. She wove their questions in so well. A number of students stayed back to talk with her afterwards. All of our staff were incredibly impressed and our school psychologists also. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Yumi has given keynote speeches at Dark Mofo Festival of Dangerous Ideas, Department of Rural Health Sexual Health Conference, The Australian Women's Leadership Symposium, One of One International Women's Day Conference and was the fearless MC at the 2019 Women's March in Sydney.
