Conference Speaking

The Palladium Ballroom at Crown had well over 1100 people enjoying a fabulous breakfast, being entertained by Glenn Shorrock and listening to keynote speaker Adam Thompson. Sandi, you stole the show! Your delivery style of connecting with the audience and holding their attention was the highlight of the morning. How many people present a corporate message and get a call for two rounds of applause from the MC – and enthusiastic response from the guests? You did! You exceeded expectations!

You were an excellent ambassador of your country (Australia), and believe me you will be the subject matter of our PA's for sometime. They just loved your presentations and most importantly the YOU. We would definitely love to have you again if we can. Thank you so very much, you were and are just marvellous.

Thank you again for leading the Library Staff Let Loose day. Your engaging style and significant professional expertise gave everyone a sense of trust and confidence. You certainly assisted Deakin University Library in working with staff on issues that they had raised through our recent Top Third Staff Survey, including communication, working together better and understanding each other.

After more than 10 years in the speaking industry I have seen a lot of speakers and trainers and I can say without hesitation, Sandi Givens is one of the finest. Sandi's attention to detail, professionalism, genuine care for her audience and outstanding presentation skills make her a must for any organisation seeking improved performance. I had the privilege of working with Sandi and a team of other presenters, to deliver a 3-month leadership program for one client over four years. I can tell you, Sandi was a favourite with the different groups ever year. I would happily recommend Sandi Givens as a speaker, trainer or MC to any company or event organiser.

Workshop Facilitation

Sandi is without doubt one of the most skilled communicators and facilitators of change that I have ever encountered in my professional career. Her skill as a communicator is truly extraordinary, and the creativity and spontaneity she brings to the learning environment is exceptional. Many participants comment that their learning with Sandi has been a ‘life changing experience’.

Sandi was brilliant! Lovely, friendly, funny! Sandi put me at ease as I was put forward by my manager to attend, saying I needed this information to progress in my job. Sandi kept me engaged at all times and I feel it has developed me professionally and personally.

What I liked most about Sandi was her passion for the content, grounded, friendly, wonderful to work with, very engaging, honest and use of true-life examples – not just theory.

The course exceeded my expectations. Having attended similar courses, my mind was slightly closed. Sandi's presentation skills, professionalism, enthusiasm and content proved very insightful, entertaining and valuable.

Sandi’s words and behaviour are completely consistent: she projects genuine interest in other people and passion for what she’s teaching. Her wisdom and good humour give us confidence. She is my first choice of consultant to work with for personal and professional development.

You exceeded my expectations. I have learned so much about self-belief. I know now if I put my mind to something, I can do it – not just at work, but in all areas of my life. Thanks, Sandi.

Sandi is fantastic – the content is all inspiring. We hung on to every word. Encouraging, clear, inspiring, funny, knowledgeable. Never met anyone that has taught me so much in a small amount of time.

Sharing My Experiences of Postnatal Depression and PTSD

It was obvious from feedback staff have given that they were very appreciative of your time and by sharing your story, that there is hope and help. Your bravery has encouraged others to express and share their stories and open discussion which can only be a good thing.
Sandi was highly professional and resourceful. She was able to adapt her presentation due to the presentation before her and passed on some really important resources and key messages that had not been covered. We received universal feedback from all attendees that the presentation was highly valuable.

The audience felt that there was no longer a negative stigma against those diagnosed with depression and that there was no need to hide. You did an excellent job helping our audience feel more aware of the signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety in themselves and others. Thank you for making time to come and speak to us.
