Penelope Field, Karabar High, ACT

A very engaging and useful presentation. It increased my awareness on how to appeal to Gen Y and engage learners in my classroom."

Belinda Sparks, St Mary's

Daniela's interactive full day presentation was based on a thorough knowledge and understanding of adolescent development as well as what is important to teenagers. Her respectful and non judgmental approach gained the respect and cooperation of our students and led them to new levels of understanding about themselves. Students were engaged in fun discussion and activities and were unanimous in their reports about the positive affect the program had on their behaviours. I would highly recommend this program as a highly effective and inspiring method to develop a positive sense of personal autonomy in students.
Comments included;
- We learnt how to be more positive and to think happy.
- I have learnt about my strengths and weaknesses and how to inspire people.
- You have taught me so much in such a short time, I will never forget it.
