Testimonials for Narelle Fraser
We thoroughly enjoyed having Narelle present at a Business in Heels event. She is very authentic and a “natural” speaker. All were thoroughly entertained, often in fits of laughter as Narelle shared some of her real life stories. Underlying her entire presentation was an inspirational message that you can overcome the challenges life throws at you and succeed. This really resonated with her audience.
Lisa Sweeney, Executive Director, Business in Heels
Narelle had me at “Imagine you’re in the boot of a car with a dead body” and I sat on the edge of my seat for the rest of her presentation. What an amazing, exciting but testing career Narelle had with the Victorian Police Force. I can honestly say I was disappointed when she finished. You think you’ve had a bad day? Wait until you hear what Narelle got up to!
Tracie Kyne, Manager, Bendigo Bank Northern Region
When I first heard Narelle speak, I was amazed at how her personality oozed throughout her delivery. From being downright funny right through to her raw personal experiences, Narelle’s presentations have held me from the start. Her vulnerabilities as a woman during 25 years investigating some of the most challenging cases, have been both her greatest asset and also her achille’s heal. Narelle will make you laugh and make you cry, and you will walk away amazed with her very personal story. I highly recommend you have a listen.
Ray Foster, Director, Investigator Upgrade
Narelle’s use of light hearted moments together with very serious matters proved a point how life can be a challenge. The feedback from the attendees at the dinner has been full of praise as she was a highlight of the convention.

Narelle’s interview on the ABC was incredible – I sat in my car for 10 minutes engrossed – and wow about that goanna!

Narelle Fraser is a highly engaging and fascinating speaker. One minute she has you wiping away tears from stories about the incredible cases she dealt with The next minute you are crying with laughter from one of her hilarious tales from her 27 years in the force. The entire room was still and everyone was captivated by Narelle – her heart and charming personality shine through.
Sarah Lawrence, Bendigo Young Professionals Network Conference, Rifle Hotel, Bendigo
I had some unprecedented feedback from many of our members. They said it was the best presentation we had EVER had at our club and it has been going some 25 years or more. Your presentation style is friendly, thought provoking, direct, clear, engaging and shows understanding and empathy appropriate to your subject matter.
Narelle’s 22 years in the force and the depth of understanding was like nothing else. Narelle’s ability to present a subject so close to home, in such an interesting and somewhat humorous way produced one of the most memorable luncheons we have had.
