You could hear a pin drop, in all my years in events management I have never seen an audience so gripped by every word, Gill inspired us all, amazing…
Adelaide Convention Centre
Gill held the audience spellbound for well over an hour. The presentation was both confronting and inspirational. It gave our members a new perspective on prioritising their lives and what is truly important as well as the sheer determination in beating the odds… truly a unique experience

The delegates felt empowered, inspired and appreciative with the opportunity to network and attend workshops
Organiser of Police Service Event
One could not help but be inspired and challenged - and in the very self centred world of the City reflective on how we spend our time, live our lives and evaluate what is truly important. Pity I could not have made it mandated viewing for all on the trading floor!
Gill is a constant reminder that our work is hugely valued and appreciated, and has become a dear friend to many. Her frequent and overwhelmingly positive comments about St Thomas', her fundraising efforts and her willingness to talk candidly about her experiences as a patient and of her recovery continue to enrich the lives of everyone who has met her since those tragic events on July 7

You tell your story with such power and pace… it is essential to our survival and that of our planet that we stay conscious – that we are aware of what we are doing … and that we act on that awareness. By example and by examination, you show us how. Thank you
Dr Scilla Elworthy
Founder of Peace Direct, recipient of the Niwano Peace Prize in 2003 and nominated three time for the Nobel Peace
She has worked hard to regain her mobility with prosthetic limbs, and now works tirelessly for better opportunities for disabled people with the charity Leonard Cheshire Disability, and devotes herself full-time to building networks for peace between Muslim, Christian and other communities. Gill has displayed an awesome spirit and strength to choose hope over despair, and a relentless sense of purpose, when it would have been so easy to fall into depression. Like so many other women, the unimaginable tests she has faced have not made her give up, but instead inspired her to devote herself to a cause close to her heart.
Inspiring! Gill was fantastic – I could have listened to her all day! … She made me realise that little things mean a lot
Nurse in the Midlands
Gill was an absolute delight and very well received by the audience.
