Dubbo White Ribbon Forum
- The conference was a huge success. Mike's presentation added greatly to the conference. His presentation was emotive and honest. You could have heard a pin drop as he shared his life's story with us. His sense of justice and strong ethical character was clear to everyone. Everyone was moved and there wasn't an eye without a tear. He is one of the strongest examples of resilience that I could ever hope to meet. From where he started, to what he accomplished, no blame for his mother, just love and sadness at what she lost - he is an amazing man.
- We were really impressed with Mike's background research and enthusiasm for the project. He was so lovely to deal with, and his professionalism and polished presenting made our shoot (and edit) a pleasure!

- Mike Munro had the audience enthralled with details of a part of his life that was largely unknown to them. An engaging speaker who went out of his way to make sure everyone in attendance had a chance to meet and speak with him after his presentation.
Scone Neighbourhood Centre
- Our choice of Mike Munro for our event was a huge success. This is mainly due to the efforts of Mike himself. He came very well prepared having discovered some research that is most relevant to our business and our event. He opened by presenting the research results as they applied to us and then led into his own story. He drew a very appropriate parallel between his own story and that of some of the people who we assist to find meaningful work. Mike was most generous with his time. Without any prompting he headed over to a table of journalists who were all just delighted to meet him and share experiences. Additionally Mike spent a great deal of time with many people with disabilities, posing for photos with them and answering all their questions. The way he engaged with everyone on the night was amazing. So too is Mikes own story of his journey and his triumph over early disadvantage – very inspiring. We are very grateful to Mike for his involvement in our Job Shadow night gala dinner, frankly he made for us. We thoroughly recommend Mike as a speaker, he is extremely versatile and very engaging.
