Testimonials for Megan Gilmour
Megan spoke at our Fire Up Leader Forum in Canberra which is a St. George employee event to support our leaders development. Megan spoke about the amazing work of MissingSchool, how they’re using technology in brand new ways and also how St. George Foundation supported the team to make a difference. Megan is a highly engaging speaker who brings to life just how important the work of MissingSchool is for seriously ill children in Australia, who often miss long periods of school due to illness or treatment. I recommend Megan as an inspirational guest speaker at your event.

I wanted to write to thank you for the work you do in respect of young people and their challenges in respect of schooling, illness, and sociality. It isn’t well understood that these issues require a ‘wrap around’ care response and that in providing this we sustain children and their families through times of difficulty and need. This may seem a little out of the remit of the work of my Office, but, it is certainly a factor in promoting wellbeing and, in doing so, a more sustainable society. I heard you speak about your work and was impressed with the holistic approach you take in respect of these complex issues for children, young people and their families. Your commitment to social change and innovation was inspiring and enlightening.

I have coached Megan to prepare and present at several major speaking events, including TEDx Canberra, and I can say without a doubt she is the most committed, hard-working and eloquent speakers I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Megan puts great thought and heart into her work. She has high standards for herself and never lets herself, or her audiences down. She doesn’t do things by halves. She researches her topic meticulously and integrates the most salient facts with powerful storytelling and soul to educate people and accomplish her mission. Megan is brave and will move and shake audiences to consider possibilities beyond their usual boundaries. She inspires people to follow her lead and identify.

Megan Gilmour has spoken at a couple of events I've run recently, both online and in-person. She is extremely engaging, inspiring, open and real. While it's clear she is an intelligent woman who can see the world, people and problems from many different perspectives, she is also down-to-earth and personable. Her messages come from the heart and she truly wants to engage with her audience. Megan is also able to connect with children, teens and adults, which not many innovators and entrepreneurs can do effectively. I believe more people would benefit from hearing about Megan's social enterprise - and very personal - journey and her drive to make a difference.

I had the immense pleasure of working with Megan on the Postcards From Tomorrow online book-launch events, and was immensely impressed by the energy, enthusiasm, experience and expertise she brought to the project. It may be that Megan is unaware of how great a positive affect her keynote had on the global audiences, who had the opportunity to hear her speak at the events - suffice it to say, I have had nothing but commendations and congratulations on having found someone so exceptional to speak. She was, for many, the highlight of the proceedings. Megan is an extremely effective and creative communicator who builds a deep rapport with her audience. She was a joy to work with and I would welcome working with her again at any time. Megan is a ‘Go To’ when looking for wit, wisdom, insight and inspiration in a keynote speaker!
