Feedback
NAB Private Wealth recently invited Greta Thomas to share her journey and lessons in a speech for our clients as part of a national roadshow. Greta was truly an inspirational speaker. Our audiences responded warmly to Greta's dynamic and engaging presentation, rating her talk an average of 4.7 out of 5, an excellent response. Greta maintained her energy and quality across five events around the country. We would highly recommend Greta as an engaging, inspirational and thought-provoking speaker.? NAB Private Wealth

We recently had the pleasure of having Greta Thomas as guest speaker for one of our corporate boardroom lunches. In a room of senior executives Greta was impactful, thought provoking and inspiring. Her topic is great, truly original and well crafted, with some wonderful examples that add colour and evoke an emotional response. Greta took great care to understand the audience, craft her presentation accordingly. As a presenter, Greta delivers with great style, authenticity, passion and credibility. She had our room of senior (and potentially cynical) executives enthralled. The feedback was fabulous. The event was a great success and I would highly recommend using her again.

Following Greta Thomas's well received and energetic presentation at a previous event, we invited her to deliver the keynote presentation as our recent Forum For Purpose, held across five cities in Australia. Greta was able to bring the same energy to the role, delivering a thoughtful, informative presentation which engaged the audience and set the tone for the rest of the day. Our audiences all gave great feedback on Greta's presentation, finding her talk to be inspiring and motivating. She was a pleasure to work with, professional in our interactions before and after the events and an enthusiastic contributor throughout.
