WHAT THE CLIENTS SAY:
Di did an excellent presentation on achieving a work life balance for our predominately HR audience. What Di brings to the audience is her warmth and real life stories. The audience could relate to her stories and they would laugh or share a smile because she speaks from experience and she is REAL. What makes Di unique as a motivational speaker is she doesn't preach and give you all the hype which some motivational speakers tend to do. She is a mother, a business woman and a wife. Hence she is able to engage the audience and share her real life stories with humour, passion and honesty. The strategies she provides are not rocket science but rather simple things that we often take for granted or forget to apply in our daily lives. She reminds us to reconnect with our family, friends, work, health and oneself to achieve a better work life balance.
TO THOSE WHO WANT BETTER - I am the Managing Director and principal owner of Robins Kitchen which I am proud to say is the largest private kitchenware chain in Australia. I have had the benefit of a wide range of experiences in my adult life, through being a Lawyer, an Army Infantry Officer, Development Financier, now the owner of a retail chain and last but not least a Husband and Father of four. During this time I have benefited from being exposed to may inspirational and motivational individuals. Di Padgett is equal, and in some ways better than any I have seen. Why? There are two reasons. Firstly because she is so much like you and I. That covers a pretty wide group! Secondly because she offers powerful but practical advice that can change anyone's life for the better today and in the future. She did that for me and a large number of my team. I recommend that you allow her the same opportunity to do the same for you and anyone around you.
On December 2nd 2004, Di Padgett was the guest speaker at the Melton Home Based Business / Business Links Seminar. In a room of Businesses seeking new innovative ways of motivating themselves / their staff, Di delivered a fantastic presentation on "How to achieve a Better Work-Life Balance". With the audience captivated, Di's genuine passion was evident, referring to a number of key challenges and strategies to address them based on many of her real life experiences. Feedback from the audience indicated Di's message had inspired them to achieve their goals. Di's presentation was very professional, humorous and was delivered at an informal level that captured the audience and had them interacting with Di throughout the presentation. She definitely has had a long standing impact on the audience.
Extremely valuable presentation to the Home Based and Small Business Community. Di's down to Earth style helped her really connect to the business and generated enormous amount of discussion and positive feedback about how the audience easily related to her key points.
I had the pleasure of being in the audience of a recent Maroondah HomeBiz networking function which is supported by the Maroondah Council. At this session, Di Padgett gave a presentation on how to achieve a better 'Work Life Balance'. After speaking with many of those present, I can attest that the attendees, myself included, were able to identify a number of key strategies and changes which we could implement immediately to improve our current lifestyle. Notably, the main reason why Di's presentation was so powerful and meaningful, is that she is not an academic, but rather an example of someone who can empower others by sharing the methods she has used to overcome personal challenges. Given her life experiences and genuine passion to assist people to reach their fullest potential, the audience was fully captivated by her presentation. The style in which the presentation was delivered was extremely professional, yet her delivery had an element of informality which further engaged all present. Importantly, when delivering a session in a limited timeframe, Di was extremely focussed on the topic and had clearly fully researched and thoroughly prepared the prersentation for her target audience.
The feedback and response was nothing short of amazing. The general feedback was how "real" Di was. Since our two day retreat I have seen incredible changes in my Managers. Was I happy with Di Padgett? YOU BET! Would I recommend her services? DEFINITELY!
The program is with integrity and credibility with a style that is refreshingly honest. Your people and business will certainly benefit from involvement of any kind with the "You Are Special" programs.
Di Padgett is one of the most dynamic people l have ever had the fortune to meet. With her strong commitment to helping people she works hard to ensure that she delivers her best every time.
"You Are Special" was inspirational and kicked off our year in a positive way. Our team was motivated to work together and move forward.
In more than 8 years in the training field I have seldom come across an individual with the energy, enthusiasm, commitment, communication skills and first hand knowledge of this lady.
Laughter and good spirit abounds the rooms and this has flowed through to the children's attitude and behaviour. I have also noticed that several of the girls have grown and are more settled in their personal life, this I am certain can be attributed to your philosophy of whole of life and not just work life separate from personal life.
The "participation method" always works well for us and we thoroughly enjoy your style - it's a great teaching technique. You certainly made everyone feel special.
"People changed". Di used her own story to inspire women to cope with difficult situations. Four of our women have gone on to develop fulfilling careers.
