Accepting and embracing your vulnerabilities
Excellent! Brilliant?! 10/10 feedback was all positive. Asking for Narelle to come again.
A beautiful lady with, although harrowing tales to tell, also a positive, strong and important message for us all to take home. I cannot recommend Nacelle highly enough. My clients all loved listening to her honest accounts and raw insight into life as a VicPol member. A wonderful warm person and a brilliant speaker.
I think the audience resonated with her content. Very insightful and authentic speaker. Narelle’s 22 years in the force and the depth of understanding was like nothing else. Narelle’s ability to present a subject so close to home, in such an interesting and somewhat humorous way produced one of the most memorable luncheons we have had. We personally appreciated Narelle’s approach to situations and scenarios and have the upmost respect for what you have done for people with your community. Narelle is always welcome at our events.

Narelle was fantastic, she was engaging with the audience and felt really natural at presenting her story. The topics/stories/information she presented was exactly what we were looking for and highly relevant to our audience.

We have had the honour to hear Narelle speak at our recent Probus Club Meeting. For her to be able to speak with such clarity, conviction and honesty about her life as a Detective, seeing the worst that life could throw at her, only proves that we are so fortunate to have Police of her caliber, keeping us safe in this strange world. Luckily for us, she also has an amazing wit that had us going from shock/horror, to laughter in the blink of an eye. She is honest to know when "enough is enough" and to be able to use her experiences in a positive way with her dynamic and invaluable presentation.

Narelle has a wonderful story-telling ability. Her opening comments were marvellous, we were captured. Every eye in the room was riveted on her. Her presentation was fascinating from beginning to end. We were all captivated as she opened our eyes to a life none of us knew anything about.
I am so grateful to have had the privilege of being educated by Narelle and had the opportunity to draw from her experiences. Narelle is a role model for me. Her ‘Investigative Techniques’ classes paid off – my stolen bike was located after I did what I learned from Narelle’s lessons. I thank Narelle for everything she taught me.

My rural 35km drive home from work each afternoon has never been so captivating as Narelle’s interview on ABC Statewide Drive last week. Travelling alone, I felt as if Narelle was sitting beside me & unleashing such a build-up of emotions – both pleasantly eventful and also traumatic. In fact terrifying at times. Recently, I was reminded that in one’s life there would be about four people who make a significant and lasting impression – I reckon Narelle has eclipsed that scale. All I can say is the Force was truly blessed to have had her serve so professionally.

Narelle’s interview on the ABC was incredible – I sat in my car for 10 minutes engrossed – and wow about that goanna!
Journalist - Bendigo
As a former Peer Support Officer with Victoria Police and now a member supporting emergency service workers in the NT, I found the ABC interview with Narelle to be just the thing the organisation and the wider community needed to hear. Narelle’s message keeps getting through because of the way she tells her story – it’s her style & honesty which is so powerful.

When I first heard Narelle speak, I was amazed at how her personality oozed throughout her delivery. From being downright funny right through to her raw personal experiences, Narelle’s presentations have held me from the start. Her vulnerabilities as a woman during 25 years investigating some of the most challenging cases, have been both her greatest asset & also her achille’s heal. Narelle will make you laugh and make you cry, and you will walk away amazed with her very personal story. I highly recommend you have a listen.
I have had the pleasure of hearing Narelle speak on two occasions now. Narelle’s 27 years in the police force has provided her with an enormous amount of material to draw from. She takes you on an emotion packed roller-coaster ride, recounting just a few of the events that occurred throughout her long career; some confronting & so bizarre you’ll shake your head in disbelief. Narelle is a born story-teller with a strong & relevant message to share; a message from which we should all take heed.

We thoroughly enjoyed having Narelle present at a Business in Heels events. She is very authentic and a "natural" speaker. All were thoroughly entertained, often in fits of laughter as Narelle shared some of her real life stories. Underlying her entire presentation was an inspirational message that you can overcome the challenges life throws at you and succeed.This really resonated with her audience.

Narelle Fraser is a highly engaging and fascinating speaker. One minute she has you wiping away tears from stories about the incredible cases she dealt with. The next minute you are crying with laughter from one of her hilarious tales from her 27 years in the force. The entire room was still and everyone was captivated by Narelle - her heart and charming personality shine through.
