Testimonials for Tasneem Chopra OAM
“…the women were in awe! The take away quote for the day was ‘don’t just set the table make sure you have a seat at it’ you should patent that!! Cause I’m using it from now on!”
Romany Amarasingham, City of Hume
“Great session and privileged to hear Tasneem’s personal story. What stuck with me were the statements: “Bad things happen when good people say and do nothing”. And “Seek the good where you find it”. “For me, Tasneem’s presentation reinforced my understanding and tolerance of cultural and religious diversity”. “Leadership can be demonstrated through a variety of approaches, but the speaker showed that having a passion for what you believe in, as well as having a “can do” attitude, can make all the difference”
Family Relationships Institute, Adelaide
“I loved the way Tasneem peeled back the layers of stereotyping and perceptions that inhibit all of us. I appreciated the open, personal way in which she shared her experiences and knowledge”
“Please continue your talks; they make difference”
Ramadan Dinner Presentation, Judicial College of Victoria

Department of Human Services
"Your insightful and thought-provoking speech not only set the tone for the day but generated a great deal of discussion amongst the participants. It inspired schools to develop greater understanding of tackling intersectionality and realise the importance of intercultural knowledge, diversity in leadership, and opportunities for action for their schools. I personally took a lot from your words and have been thinking about your presentation ever since, particularly in terms of my role as a leader in supporting an education system that is supportive of, and empowering for, students from all backgrounds.
Department of Education - International Education Division and the Department of Education and Training
On behalf of the students, teachers, and administrators of Minaret College, we wish to thank you for taking the time to visit our school. It was a pleasure meeting you and listening to your motivational speech. I have never seen our students so excited and so highly engaged during your speech and video you shared with us. Your words of wisdom were very powerful and profound. They gave us many opportunities to think and self-reflect.
